Traditional mindfulness authentic yoga

The ancient Indian science of yoga has always considered the mind as being supreme over matter and has based its practices on this idea. The great Rishi Patanjali defines yoga as "a systematic conscious process of mastering and controlling the mind". This process of mastering the mind is yoga.

In this process, according to Patanjali's yoga sutras or aphorisms, all five aspects or bodies of total human system and total body must be involved. Physical body, breathing body, mind body, knowledge body or inner mind, and bliss body are the five aspects or bodies of the total body (pancha kosas). All these five aspects are interrelated and interdependent one unit. Even one of these cannot be neglected.

When yoga is practiced by involving all five bodies, the total body gets the physical benefits, therapeutic benefits, and spiritual benefits. This will result in maintaining homeostasis in the body level and equanimity in the mind level and leads to positive health, happiness, and peace of mind. This method of holistic practice is the traditional authentic yoga. All must learn this way of practicing yoga to live a stress free happy life in this fast paced modern world. Yoga therapy and mindfulness yoga go hand in hand.

Modern yoga

Western philosophy and psychology even now lay great stress on the physical body and consider the mind to be its by-product. Even the Western view of yoga is also the same and most of the yoga practices are done only at the physical body level. Some practice at breathing body level also. Yoga is also fragmented. Some teach and practice only one aspect or one part of the yoga process. Some mix it with other forms of physical exercises.

Therefore most of the modern yoga is not authentic. They have moved away from the originality of the pure traditional mindfulness holistic yoga.

What the course covers

During the program, you will explore Raja yoga (path of willpower), Patanjali's holistic Ashtanga yoga (slow, focused, meditatively with breathing, knowledge, and smile), and Hatha yoga (branch of Raja yoga). You will also learn and experience Karma yoga (path of action) and Bhakti yoga (path of devotion and emotion).

You will also learn the basics of yoga therapy for preventing and managing psychosomatic diseases (80% of the modern day diseases). In addition, basic knowledge of Ayurveda and foot reflexology will also be taught.

You will be trained in:

  • The application of Raja yoga
  • Teaching yoga as a career
  • How to start a yoga center or studio
  • Marketing techniques
  • Identifying market segments and devising suitable marketing strategies and yoga modules for different market segments
  • Yoga therapy
  • Yoga and social work
  • Yoga modules for students, elderly persons, pregnant ladies, sports persons, trekkers, and more

You will possess a firm foundation for teaching others and deepen your knowledge and holistic practice. You will be able to teach both traditional mindfulness authentic Ashtanga yoga and authentic Hatha yoga. You will have a clear understanding about how to start a career as a yoga teacher. Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive internationally recognized Yoga Alliance International certificates.

    "The yoga retreat in Blue Indigo Cottage Retreat Center was really good! We enjoyed it so much. The environment provides a relaxing condition for us to learn and practice yoga. The teachers there are professional, especially. Mr Krishna Raja. We only stayed for 3 days and thus we could not learn too much at once. Krishna sent us email with the yoga theory notes so that we could learn more and practise out of the class. The combination of theory and actual practice is very enjoyable. Food are very nice and yum there!"

The buildings themselves are beautifully declared and the whole area is peaceful and charming. I spent a week there and loved every minute of it."

    "We spent 4 days at Blue Indigo and had an amazing stay. We did some yoga and meditation sessions and spent half a day seeing Ankor Wat. The staff made us feel welcome and were very accommodating with our schedule. The food they served was delicious (and healthy!) and we loved the hut we stayed in. The location is also great as it's 5 mins away from the bars and restaurants, but quiet. Highly recommend if you're looking for a retreat on a budget and want some peace and quiet!"

    "Blue Indigo Cottage is a wonderful place to stay. Jade made the yoga classes really personal and is very professional in her work with people and leading classes. Eddie was more into physical strength and good to have variation of flying and AcroYoga classes. The food here is one of the best vegetarian food I have ever had. But overall, I loved my stay here and have experienced one of the best yoga classes I have ever had. Thank you for greeting us so well and for making this experience so unique. I will recommend this place to everyone that are going to Cambodia. And good luck with evolving this magical place."

    "Overview: Poorly managed yoga retreat. Positive side: Yoga classes three times a day, skillful yoga teachers, yoga education everyday (learn basic education about yoga which very useful for beginner), delicious vegetarian breakfast and lunch, experience yoga in Ankor Wat temple, experience blessing ceremony by Cambodian monks. Negative side: Accommodation was very poor. I paid double for my personal room but I found that it was very poorly prepared like no hot water and mosquitoes were everywhere (not only in the room but also in yoga area) with no attempt from organizers to handle the issue. Organizer forgot to provide ordered juice for dinner on the second night which left me starving, Meditation teacher was very poor in delivering the lecture which sometimes misleading students. I could not meditated in the retreat area because of mosquitoes, and loud noise of construction work beside the retreat area. The organizers was not available in two emergencies situation that happened during the retreat. We need to reach the yoga teacher to be able to solve the issues. There is a sewage rat in the bathroom and one of the retreat member were robbed and attacked by motorcycle which left her hurt and lost her properties such as passport and credit card."

    "The yoga instructors were absolutely fantastic. Thank you Jade and Nina. But everything else was terrible. The manager, Jean, a Frenchman, was rude, arrogant not helpful at all. No welcome drink in the 36 degree heat and when we needed assistance he was more concerned with playing computer games on his laptop. The food was limited in every way imaginable, not a detox retreat as advertised. The beds were rock hard on wheels and unstable. We only lasted three days. The best part was we had to walk past a restaurant called the Angkor Secret Garden Inn and the owner there was so much more friendlier and helpful. We actually felt more welcome there than at the retreat. Thank you Sensai. Sad that this is my first bad review."

    "Blue Indigo Cottage is amazing! The grounds are beautiful, even more so than is displayed in pictures. They've created a wonderfully calm and serene atmosphere for guests. The cottages are quaint, cute and functional with surprisingly few bugs. The food was incredible!! Excellent quality and variety. The staff was great and always willing to make accommodations/help my sister and I with anything we needed. As for the yoga courses, I felt very comfortable with instructors and other participants even though I'm a beginner and am very inflexible. Instructors were also helpful and mindful in giving me substitute poses when I mentioned that I can't put much weight on my wrists. The classes were fantastic! I learned a lot and enjoyed how the teachings and poses progressed throughout my 3-day stay. Shout-out to Nina for being so sweet and helpful when I had trouble during flying yoga!! I do wish we had been able to have the yoga lecture that occurs mid-morning, but during the time I was in attendance, they were apparently short-staffed for an instructor to teach this. Understandable, but they might benefit by better communicating this in the future or maybe reducing the price a smidge since my sister and I were expecting 3 classes a day. I left feeling super relaxed, well-fed and armed with new knowledge on yoga techniques/poses used around the world. Overall, I'm very impressed and would go back in a heartbeat!"

    "I write this review after one month, and I write it with the same feeling or as if it was yesterday. I am a 28 year old Romanian guy living in China, and I was looking for five days off too clear my mind and immerse myself in yoga practice. Booking Blue Indigo proved to be more than I was looking for. I found Blue Indigo to be a place so welcoming and friendly, that five days proved to bee to short. It started from my arrival when Jan (the owner) welcomed me with a big smile at midnight and showed me my cozy cottage. The next day early 6 a.m. I meet Jade, our yoga teacher, she was an inspiration and made me look forward to her every class or lecture. And at breakfast I meet Patrik, organizational manager, who was what I felt in a state of mindfulness and carefully observing what everyone was needing. Therefore in five days stay I haven't missed anything. It's a great place made by great people, and I hope I could bring some of my friends there one day."

    "More fruit for the breakfast would be nice as I don't eat egg or dairy. I cannot fault anything other than that. All the yoga and meditation classes were amazing. I loved the sala area and I spent a lot of time relaxing there. I loved my stay."

    "Yoga at the temples - good. Free water and tea - nice. Nice to combine the program with the freedom to go around and do your own things. Nice touch: the incense when the room is cleaned. Thanks for a nice experience."

    "Un beau potentiel sur la voie"

    ""

    "Le blue indigo cottage est niché au bout d'une impasse légèrement excentré. On n'y vient pas par hasard. "

    "Le lieu est une enclave de verdure joliment décorée "

    "Les chambres sont simples, décorées dans le même esprit que le lieu. "

    "L'offre de yoga est dense. Ensuite La qualité des cours dépend du professeur et de votre affinité avec La pratique proposée mais le point fort du yoga est qu'on découvre toujours des choses si on accepte d'être â l'écoute. "

    "Les cours théoriques sont intéressants car cela donne du sens et de la profondeur à sa pratique "

    "Les salles de pratique sont sympathiques et varient selon la journée. Il est important de prévoir que l'option bikram est souvent fournie d'office, en période chaude "

    "Les repas sont de qualité et la cuisinière et son assistante très serviables "

    "Mes réserves sont des points qui n'auront peut-être plus lieu d'être cités dans quelques temps "

    "L'accueil des propriétaires est réduit au minimum requis, ce qui est dommage car l'esprit guest house est d'accorder autant d'attention aux guests qu'à la house. Ce sont eux qui contribuent à donner l'âme au lieu. Cela est d'autant plus dommage qu'au maximum de l'affluence nous étions 4, donc facile d'avoir une attention même infime pour chacun. Je mettrai cela sur le compte que La pleine saison ouvre mi décembre et qu'ils étaient accaparés par leurs travaux. Tout est donc soumis à une possible évolution positive rapide."

    ""

    "Enfin non négligeable (La guest house n'en est pas responsable) : le bruit. "

    "Nous sommes en ville. Un immeuble se construit à côté et les marteaux piqueurs et autres bétonnières peuvent s'en donner à cœur joie. Et surtout le plaisir de la fin de semaine ce sont les mariages. Pris dans l'enthousiasme de la conjugalité future ils attaquent avec entrain â 6h voire 5h du matin les psalmodies et autres musiques pour éteindre vers 20h/21h. "

    "Le point positif est que ces désagréments sonores éprouvent notre capacité de sérénité et de concentration. Ces désagréments sont certainement passagers."

    ""

    "Le blue indigo est un beau lieu à Angkor avec un positionnement de niche. Il offre un beau complément aux temples (ma recommandation prenez le temps de les visiter avant ou après sinon vous allez courir tout le temps, ce qui n'est pas le but). "

    "Après quelques ajustements, ce sera le vrai hâvre de paix qu'il aspire à être."
