Sugerencia del experto: esta es una de las retiros de yoga más populares que se ofrecen en Guatemala.
This certified Hridaya Hatha yoga practitioner intensive retreat organized by Kaivalya Yoga School covers a versatile set of postures (asanas), their effects on the various levels of your being (physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual), and the meditative role of the mind during the practice. You will learn about the immense power of your breath and the significance of the subtle energy system (chakras and nadis), unlocking your fullest potential and overcoming obstacles in daily life.
You will be accommodated in a chalet. You can have your pick of four-bed bamboo dorms, private single rooms or splurge in the chalet, or a round casita with colored bottles in the wall and its own bathroom (queen bed). There are limited beds at the ashram, so please book early to secure your spot and for the best rate. There are hammocks and communal areas available to all.
By popular request, Kaivalya Yoga School is now offering the perfect format for those who would like to get away for two weeks, spending a relaxing, affordable, and inspiring time at a traditional, yet comfortable ashram in a stunning setting.
Hridaya yoga is classical Hatha yoga and meditation as practiced a thousand years ago. The courses are designed as transformative journeys for soul, mind, and body that leave you elevated and inspired to live your life in this world to the fullest. The course is suitable for beginners, intermediate, and advanced students who want to learn the traditional approach and deepen their background knowledge of yoga.
In the west, yoga is often taught as a kind of exercise benefiting health and wellness. Yet in India, yoga has developed over thousands of years as a science of consciousness and system of profound knowledge, not only of the body but concerning the mind and the relationship between your individual microcosm and the macrocosm of the universe as a whole.
This is well-illustrated in the word "yoga" itself, meaning "union", individual and the universe are ultimately one and the same, which is not a dogma but can be experienced first-hand by anyone willing to "surf the wave" and open up towards inner strength and natural balance through the deepening of your awareness.
In its own way, Hridaya yoga is similar to Yin yoga, Anusara yoga, and Agama yoga, featuring an inspiring series of yogic lectures, an attitude of surrender rather than pushing, and a dedicated focus on the heart. The Sanskrit word "Hridaya" signifies the spiritual heart, recognized as your ultimate identity beyond appearances as described by numerous sages and traditions through the centuries. The practice focuses on revealing the self as the supreme reality, leading the aspirant through states of increasing joy, bliss, and deep understanding towards pure awareness.
You will be certified with "Practitioner of Yoga" certification on successful completion of the course.
During the retreat, you will have a excursion tour to a waterfall which is half an hour up the river beyond the accommodation.
This retreat will take place in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. It is located just outside San Marcos La Laguna, the yoga capital of Central America. Please note that Kaivalya Yoga School is located in a tropical traditional Mayan village in the Third World which also means that noise and other occasional inconveniences cannot be completely avoided. However, there are not many mosquitos at all and there are no dangerous diseases, insects, or other animals around.
You will be served with meals daily, crafted lovingly by the ashram kitchen. Everything that is served is vegan, sattvic (well-balanced for spiritual practice), and delicious.
There are very affordable massages available in the village (from 20 USD per hour) and you may have your steam room finished in time for this course but Kaivalya Yoga School cannot guarantee it.
