Your aim is to rediscover the realm of pure potential of the inner self and its spiritual essence. You will focus particularly on the internal aspects of yoga: organ cleansing, tissue pumps, nervous systems, circulation of lymph and blood, releasing psychic knots known as Granthis from Sushumna Nadi and Pranic blockages from the Nadis, and creating hydraulic and pneumatic pressures within the body to create change. All movements are undertaken with inner conscious awareness, promoting a state of integration of the mind and body.
As you practice this inner yoga style, you reconnect with your inner reservoir of energy, vitality, and creativity. You will return to a younger functioning physical and mental state. Iyengar yoga practices are designed to enhance the qualities of rejuvenation and longevity, to correct postural imbalances, and to create vitality and health while promoting the natural abilities of the body to energize and heal, so that it can realize its own amazing potential.
For participants who are undergoing a yoga teacher training, Balance Your Life With Ayurveda also offers you the opportunity to organize and teach a yoga class during the retreat to improve your teaching skills.
