What is Rounding?

Known as “industrial strength meditation,” Rounding is an enjoyable practice that prepares your mind and body for a profoundly deep meditation.

A ‘Round’ is a specific sequence of the following relaxing activities:

  • 10 minutes of gentle asanas (stretches that anyone can do)
  • 5 minutes of an easy breathing exercise
  • 20 minutes of Vedic Meditation
  • 10 minutes of lying down rest

On a Rounding Retreat, we perform multiple rounds in a day for transformational stress release.

Rounding on retreat provides the equivalent stress release of 6 months of twice daily meditation.


“Rest is the basis for action.”

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi


When we’re living on the go, even one evening of relaxation can seem luxurious.

But a few hours a week is hardly enough to bring our nervous system back to balance and purify the stress we’ve accumulated over our lifetime.

Rounding is like an oasis for your body. It prepares you for deep, profound meditations and enables “industrial strength” stress release when performed in cycles with a Vedic Meditation teacher in an in-person retreat.

The experience of shedding months of stress and restoring balance to our mind and body is nothing like you’ve experienced before.

As stress embedded deep in the recesses of your physiology lifts away, you feel the world open up. You’ll come away from the weekend feeling enlivened and refreshed, with more creativity and resilience. You’ll be ready to take on the world with an abundance of joy and bliss.

I’m excited to share this transformational experience with you this fall in the Catskills. I hope to see you there!

Jai Guru Deva,

We will be personally overseeing the rounding experiences of all meditators on retreat and will gently guide you through the process of release.
