On two evenings, you will be practicing yoga and meditation on the beach at sunset. The location is the less frequented Galgibag beach in South Goa. It is perhaps one of few hidden treasures that Goa has left.
The beach is known as one of the three places in Goa that form nesting grounds of the Olive Ridley turtles, a protected species. The northern portion of this beach is protected as the turtles nesting grounds and gives the beach its nickname, the Turtle Beach. The pristine stretch of golden brown sand is lined with coconut palms and other beautiful trees, and above all, it is a peaceful and quiet area.
On one morning per week, you will visit one of the local Hindu temples. A beautiful and short trip by rickshaw to attend the morning sunrise rituals are at the temples.
One morning, you will wake up bright and early and head to Palolem beach. Here, each of you will have a board to play and head out to sea (for those that don't fancy this kayaking is also available). Early in the morning, the sea is calm as there are no fishing boats and very often you will spot dolphins swimming freely in the bay. It is a beautiful experience that also works the core muscles and balance.
Om is the primordial sound creating and pervading the whole universe. The sound of Om belongs to all humanity, to all nations, and to all religions. Om healing through chanting can balance you physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. When you go through this simple but powerful process, emotions are released and inner peace and love arises. It leads to a more joyful life and supports your health and your meditation practice.
The word Mandala means "circle" in Sanskrit and represents wholeness, a cosmic diagram reminding you of your relation to infinity, extending beyond, and within your bodies and minds. The mandala appears to you in all aspects of life, the earth, the sun, the moon, and more obviously the circles of life encompassing friends, family, and communities.
Mandalas are used for meditation and healing purposes, allowing the individual working with them to dive into the depths of self-discovery. The process of creating this sacred geometry allows access to the deeper levels of the unconscious mind and promotes release, harmony, and unity with the cosmos.
You will have a special guest from India who will be giving a practical introduction to the Ancient Indian Health Science of Ayurveda. The guest will be sharing his knowledge of Vedic science, health, art, and culture with a specific focus on Ayurveda and health. Private consultations will also be available on request.
An insight into the meaning, locations, and significance of the seven main chakras and demonstration on how to check for imbalances, using a pendulum. You will also give advice on ways to balance each chakra using methods including yoga asanas, nutrition, colors, chanting, massage and other holistic therapies. Each person will be given this information to take away and incorporate into the wellness and self-care practice.
