Meditation

Despite all its popularity, today very few people truly know what meditation is. Some regard meditation is the mental concentration on something; other considers that meditating means imagining something that gives them peace or satisfaction. All these methods are being with one goal to slow down and, eventually, completely stop the incessant activity of your minds.

These exercises are not really meditation - they are substitutes for meditation because it is normally very difficult to stop your minds altogether. In reality, meditation is a state of thoughtless awareness. It is not an act of doing - it is an act of awareness.

You either in this state or you are not, regardless of what you are doing in life. Truly a man can be in meditation while doing his day’s labor’s as another man be very far from meditation while sitting in a lotus posture on the top of a mountain.

When you take a look at the various explanations of meditation, another thing you often see is that meditation is defined as taking a moment to sit quietly or to ponder. True meditation, however, is much more than this. It is a state of profound, deep peace that occurs when the mind is calm and silent, yet completely alert.

This is just the beginning of an inner transformation that takes you to a higher level of awareness. This enables you to fulfill your true human potential. The problem of today is how to achieve the state. Authentic meditation enables one to focus on the present moment rather than dwell on the unchangeable past or undetermined future.

The theoretical explanation for the effects of meditation and relaxation techniques is that the release of catecholamine’s and other stress hormones are reduced and parasympathetic activity is increased. The instructors at Manthan Yogic Village try to achieve the same.

Yoga

Manthan Vedic Village gives you a unique insight into yoga, irrespective of whether you are a beginner or have practiced for many years. At Manthan Vedic Village, yoga is non-denominational and open to people of all faiths. They appeal to those who wish to familiarize themselves with this ancient Indian philosophy without necessarily delving into its religious aspects.

The teachers are unique, being steeped in ancient knowledge, and also trained in modern teaching methods. All classes are adapted for beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels.

For those who wish to explore different aspects of the yoga practice, there are sessions teaching pranayama (understanding and regulating your breath), pratyahara (withdrawal or internalization of sensory inputs), dharana (concentration), and dhyana (meditation).

Ayurvedic

Manthan Yogic Village provides a full detox course to the body and mind in a systematic way as mentioned in the Ayurvedic classics. A yoga and meditation class is also provided to improve the mental faculties and cleanses the mind. Rasayana (anti aging) therapy in Ayurvedic is also one of the famous treatments done here. During the course of treatments, the person is given both internal medicines and external treatment to improve the health and immunity.

Ayurvedic is an ancient science of life that purifies your body by eliminating toxins. Not only do Ayurvedic processes build immunity but they also promote health.

Daily delicious, substantial, and fresh vegetarian buffet breakfast and dinner are included in the price. In Ayurvedic, the emphasis is on a Sattvic diet for healthy living, particularly for keeping your minds clear, happy, and at peace. The original Sattvic diet was devised for the development of higher consciousness.

Sattvic foods are foods that are abundant in prana - the universal life force - that gives life to all sentient beings in both plant and animal kingdoms. A Sattvic diet means not only vegetarian food but food rich in prana like organic fresh fruits and vegetables. It requires avoiding canned and processed food and foods prepared with chemical fertilizers or sprays. It also means properly prepared fresh foods. Foods prepared with lots of love will add to their Sattvic quality.

Today, everyone needs to add to these criteria for Sattva several other modern concerns. Sattvic foods should be grown without pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers, hormones, irradiation, or anything unnatural. Modern use of refinement processes and chemical additives, besides actually adding substances to your foods, depletes foods of their prana and hence renders them heavy, impotent, and lifeless.

Sightseeing and visits to other places of interest can be availed by guests at an extra cost. Guests on therapy packages can go after completion of the treatment or after consulting the doctor.

    "My stay at Manthan Yogic Village was perfect for peace and quiet and relaxation. The yoga classes were a highlight, the teachings were a mix of dynamic and softer flow and the teacher was lovely. Also great to have the Ayurvedic treatments onsite as that encouraged me to try this kind of treatment which was very different to what I've ever tried before. The treatments were relaxing and staff took great care. As I visited during the off season and was I think the only patron, I don't believe the village was fully serviced as there was no need but I do believe it is a simple, relaxing place, staff were amazingly attentive and helpful, really lovely. Rooms were quite nice, probably on a three star rating. If you are looking for a relaxing yoga centric break, right on the beach, this is perfect. "
