The yoga that you can experience in this program is influenced by Jivamukti yoga, a gentle flowing yoga style. You will exercise with music, meditate, and deal with the philosophy that lies behind the asanas. The meditations are taken from the rich treasure of Buddhism, which is a science of mind. The teaching method will be based on the physical condition and fitness of each individual.

You will start the day with a cup of tea or hot ginger water, then start your yoga practice with gentle asanas to wake up the body and mind and then slowly intensify the practice to boost the metabolism, improve flexibility, and stamina. Afterwards, you will move into pranayama and meditation practice which will be added to your physical practice in a more subtle way. Philosophical topic which will be based around the fundamental question, who am I, will provide the framework for each class.

This program is suitable for beginners as well as more advanced yogis. You will be fortunate to enjoy the individual attention from two experienced teachers during each class for your guidance and personal assistance.

As a part of the retreat, you will meet one-on-one with a personal yoga trainer. Once is prior to the retreat to discuss your individual needs and wishes, then once more during the retreat for a more targeted yoga and meditation session. There is an option for additional yoga sessions in your free time. If you are interested in this option, please discuss it with the trainer.
