The evidence-based therapeutic benefits of practicing in this subdivision of the electromagnetic spectrum heat include increasing fitness levels, aiding in weight loss, boosting the immune system, managing health problems, both physical and mental, and improve over-all wellbeing. Practicing in this kind of heat can also benefit athletes, helping to reduce injury rates and speed up the recovery process after training.

How does this happen?

  • Muscles are warmed, making them more malleable, dramatically reducing the risk of injury and increasing flexibility
  • The flow of synovial fluid is stimulated in the joints, keeping them well lubricated, reducing friction and damage to the bones
  • Internal organs and glands are gently massaged, aiding the digestion system and increasing its effectiveness to breakdown foods and absorb vital nutrients into the bloodstream
  • Increased water intake flushes toxins out of the body, cleansing and purifying the system
  • Abdominal-diaphragmatic-breathing increasing lung capacity and strengthens the diaphragm reducing the risk of respiratory conditions
  • The circulatory flow is improved, aiding the cardiovascular and lymphatic systems, flushing every part of the body with nutrients and removing harmful waste products, cleansing and rejuvenating the entire system
  • Reduces stress and anxiety by bringing together physical and mental disciplines which focus and calm you as you move your body through poses that require balance and concentration
  • Fat is burned up and muscle tone is dramatically improved

Aside from mindfulness meditation, the styles of yoga practiced on the retreat include Vinyasa Flow yoga, chakra balancing Yin yoga, and Restorative yoga. This is a semi-silent mindfulness-based retreat, so there will be periods of silence.

A day trip to Majushri Kadampa meditation center and a rejuvenating massage are designated to enhance your strength capacity and empower the invigorating effect.

Benefits of the AlignForMe system

  • Your body will feel steadier and more aligned
  • It can help you to avoid injury. Without knowing it, yoga practitioners can weaken their body through repetitive incorrect placement and alignment. With the AlignForMe system, you can have a greater understanding of what goes where and how to correct yourself.
  • You can immediately self-correct. If you are in class and see that you are misaligned, you will not need to wait for your teacher to correct you. And when the teacher is there, they will be able to see more clearly where you may be mis-aligned.
  • If you have been practicing a certain way, this may feel strange at first. You will noticed anomalies in the bodies you had not seen before, like a right foot which tended to stray too wide in downward facing dog, or a left leg that could not step as far forwards as the right leg. All these differences can even out in in time with consistent correct placement.

Included in the price is a day trip to Majushri Kadampa meditation center. The trip aims to get you immersed in a sacred, tranquil vibe and empower your spiritual experience.
