Preksha Yoga Ashram India Yoga Retreat Program

According to Ayurveda, ojas (the subtle essence of life) is prime energy reserve for the entire body. It provides the energy, vitality, and joie de vivre (enjoyment) that gets you through life. Your immunity, strength, and resistance depend on the quality and quantity of ojas. When depleted, it predisposes you to lowered immunity, low spirits, and ill-health. Your rejuvenation program is, therefore, targeted at improving ojas.
