10 Day Body Alignment Iyengar Yoga Retreat in Rishikesh

Gita Ashram, Near Taxi Stand, Ramjhula, Swarg Ashram, Rishikesh, Uttarakhand 249304, India

Yoga Retreat India

This retreat is about a form of Hatha yoga and emphasizes on detail, precision, and alignment in the performance of postures (asana) and breath control (pranayama). The practice helps you to develop strength, mobility, and stability through the asanas. Iyengar yoga can be easily enjoyed without several years of practice.

Props such as cushions, benches, blocks, straps, and sand bags are used frequently allowing beginners to experience asanas more easily than might otherwise be possible. They also help injured or ill students to fully enjoy the benefits of the asanas. More advanced students can take their advantage in a better understanding of the asanas through the use of props. There are three unique aspects of Iyengar yoga: technicalities, sequencing, and timing.

Program

The 10 Days Course for Iyengar Yoga is suitable for intermediate students and focuses more deeply on the practice of body alignment through the performance of postures (asana) and breathing exercises (pranayama).

Iyengar Yoga can be challenging for some learners but here at Om Yoga, Rishikesh it is taught in such a way as to give the body full opportunity to adjust and align in a safe manner. Yoga teachers at Om Yoga are professionals and have been trained to teach proper alignment to build strength and flexibility before moving to more challenging asana. The centre encourages the development of a personal practice in its safe environs. Detailed instructions and adjustments for each individual, help in correcting the postures according to the alignment required.

The course and contains two classes of practising each day (asanas and pranayama), three philosophy classes and one anatomy class. At the end of each week, there is time for Q and A and group discussion.

At Om Yoga, they have a most experienced Yoga Master, Yogi Suryans Thakur who is extremely skilled and teaches with wisdom and intuition. Om Yoga does not only concentrate on completing the 10 Days Course for Iyengar Yoga curriculum but focuses on the personal well-being of each individual learner also. Yoga programmes offered by Om Yoga help to lay a strong foundation in Iyengar Yoga based on the traditional Hatha Yoga. The focus remains on correct alignment and the techniques that will lead to better alignment of postures. At the same time Om Yoga also keeps in mind any developments that will help yoga teachers in their journey of awareness and meditation.

On Sundays, there are no classes and you can enjoy sightseeing, white water rafting or attend a ceremony in one of the Ashrams (not included).
