Program

Is yoga retreat for you?

If you are feeling stressed, lack the ability to concentrate and have a number of concerns or issues constantly on your mind, you may benefit from spending time within the relaxed environment that a yoga retreat provides. Achieving balance in life requires the ability to take time-out occasionally so that focus and direction is created and put into place.

A yoga retreat provides a supportive environment in which an individual is able to gain better self-awareness away from the pressures of daily life influences. Professionals who work within hectic corporate environments, individuals coping with personal stress and issues, and men and women experiencing health-related problems can all benefit from spending time in a tranquil setting that supports the mind, soul, as well as the body.

The idea of exercising may not sound particularly soothing, but rhythmic exercise that gets you into a flow of repetitive movement can be very relaxing. Examples include: running, walking, swimming, dancing, rowing, climbing, and yoga.

Yoga involves a series of both moving and stationary poses, combined with deep breathing. As well as reducing anxiety and stress, yoga can also improve flexibility, strength, balance, and stamina. Practiced regularly, it can also strengthen the relaxation response in your daily life.

Retreat location

Pakistan is one of the few countries with dynamic landscapes; rivers, deserts, lakes, waterfalls, spring, glaciers. They seem to have it all in great abundance.

This retreat will take place in Gulmit in Hunza (Northern Pakistan), Shimshal valley. Hunza is probably Pakistan's most visited valley by the tourists. It is a fairy tale land surrounded by beautiful rugged and snowcapped mountains. Only at a distance of 100 kilometers from Gilgit, Hunza is a small town on Karakorum Highway at an altitude of 7000 - 800 feet.

The much renowned Hunza valley is often referred to as heaven on earth, enveloped in the grand Himalayas and the Karakoram mountain ranges; this place has been a great tourist attraction for many years. You will meet the Wakhi community who is spread between 4 countries. Maybe make friends with the yaks and the Markhors. But you will definitely create a family with the crew and the Pakistanis.
