Ishka Kankueb yoga

Ishka Kankueb yoga is a methodology of integral health, wellness, self-development, and spirituality that integrates in an efficient way the east's wisdom on yoga with the so far unknown and mysterious Mayan technology of the Kankueb, that enriched with the scientific western developments in neurokinesis and biopsychology, allow you to achieve multiple benefits at a physical, emotional, mental, and energetically level for your self-realization.

Ishka Vraja yoga

Ishka Vraja yoga is the yoga of movement. It has as an objective to achieve a reorganization as well as the balance of the nervous system and balance of the musculoskeletal structure of the student by cultivating and exercising the consciousness in the bodily movement along with the elements of meditation on the energy.

Ishka Vraja Yoga has a great therapeutical effect since it solves musculoskeletal difficulties and limitations in an easy, fast and efficient, but it turns out to be immensely auspicious for those who simply want to achieve bodily agility and flexibility without effort nor risks, facilitating the execution of asanas that can be difficult for the yogi. In fact, Ishka Vraja yoga in addition to solving injuries also prevents them and it prepares the person to practice meditation easily and comfortably.

Everyday, you will have activities from 06:30 to 20:00. During this immersion, you must participate in at least three mandatory practices: one practice of Karma yoga everyday either in the morning or in the afternoon, one Hatha yoga practice or one Ishka Vraja yoga practice everyday and one activity that you can choose (mantras, Satsang, Swara yoga, Yoga Nidra, meditation, pranayama). It is important to know that the place of the retreat is not a resort, nor a holiday center. The retreat is offered as a serious immersion in the yoga lifestyle.
