Lake Isle Retreats invites you to join this yoga and meditation retreat specially designed for you to explore techniques that will help you to achieve total physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. A busy lifestyle and work commitments often lead you to make unhealthy choices concerning your diet, and exercise, which can result in bad health, anxiety, and depression. Discover an abundance of techniques to overcome this state and to move towards total health and self-development.
During this retreat, you will stay either in a shared or a private room. Mandala House has private single rooms, twin rooms, and triple rooms. You can either book a room privately for yourself, share a private room with a friend or two, or share a room with others on the same retreat. Single rooms available for all retreats and the rooms can also be shared with other attendees.
During this retreat, you will explore some of the best techniques to achieve total health from spiritual to physical through asana practices (postures and stretching), pranayama (breathing techniques), relaxation, meditation, and kriyas (body cleansing techniques). This program is designed for beginners and intermediate yoga levels.
The Power yoga class is designed for beginners but it will also be enjoyed by people with some experience. The class itself is a yoga mini work-out. Atma Power yoga helps to stretch and tone muscles, improves posture and balance, and it's really fun. The exercises are fairly doable by the majority of people, but if you can't quite stretch into certain asanas, there is an easy-going mood.
Everyone is encouraged to practice only according to their own ability. Yoga mats will be provided, so if you've never done even ten seconds of yoga in your life and have no equipment or anything, all you need is yourself, some light clothes, and a little enthusiasm. Atma Power yoga is practiced with a breathing count from start to finish, which adds a dynamic aspect to the class. Each class ends with a gentle relaxation sequence.
The four pillars of yoga: nutrition, relaxation, purifying body and mind and adopting a positive attitude in life
You will still have plenty of time for a morning yoga practice. You may attend to the “Greeting of the Deities” ceremony. The program will continue with some chant music and an arati-aratis, which are ancient Hindu and Buddhist ceremonies. Afterwards, you will enjoy a talk on the Bhagavata Purana, a Sanskrit philosophical text. You are welcome to stay for as long as you like or may relax elsewhere on the island if you wish.
