Even a week long yoga retreat helps you regain energy and feel less burdened and anxious. Yoga retreats can help you power up so you are better able to deal with life.

Retreat curriculum:

  • Hatha yoga program: includes elements of traditional Hatha yoga, Iyengar’s precise posturing (pre-props), and Vinyasa flowing sequences. The asanas in this system develop core strength, focus, centering and personal empowerment.
  • Therapy series: with gentle therapeutic movements this series is ideal for the elderly, improving health, and overcoming injuries.
  • Kaula yoga program: the asana sequence in this system is meditative, relaxing and profound, gentle yet firm. It works deeply on the pranic system (not only the physical body), guiding students to let go of physical, mental and pranic inflexibility to encounter a deep loving and respectful relationship with themselves.
  • Chakras sadhana: in this practice, you consciously connect with your Chakras through mudras and mantras, acknowledging ourselves as a vehicle for the Kundalini energy. This sadhana is a way to Samadhi (the experience of unity with the Divine).
  • Active meditations: using the body to connect with and to awaken the inner vital energy through conscious movement, ecstatic dance and free expression. Cultivating self-awareness, self-empowerment and self-liberation.
  • Kundalini meditation: an energizing meditation with shaking the body, dancing and silent meditation.
  • Dynamic meditation: a transformative active meditation comprising of intense pranayama, catharsis, jumping and dancing
  • Nadabrahma meditation: Tibetan humming meditation for clarity and centering.
  • Gurushankar meditation: includes gentle movements and candle gazing
  • Bhakti yoga: the yoga of devotion, as we sing, pray and chant together, with our hearts filled with gratitude to the divine in overflowing joy.
