I have just completed a week on a yoga retreat with Peaceful Mind -The Ancient Yoga, in the beautiful setting of Palolem, Goa, India. I quickly came to the understanding that yoga is not the mere practice of various Asanas (postures and poses) which I have followed for many years. It is a combination of such Asanas with Meditation, Mantra Chanting and Pranayama. My experience with sunrise and sunset Meditation and Pranayama ( breathing techniques) on Palolem Beach and midday Mantra Chanting led by my dynamic and spiritual coach left me invigorated yet blessed with an inner peace and a feeling of joy and fulfillment.
What a wonderful week with Peaceful Mind -The Ancient Yoga......one I shall always remember with thankfulness and appreciation for my new found self.
