Program

Hatha yoga (cleansing of body and energy system)

Twice-a-day, there will be Hatha yoga practice with breathing exercises, yoga postures, and deep relaxation. Suitable for all levels, beginners will receive special attention and advanced students will get the challenges they need to develop further. Special focus of the Hatha yoga sessions will be cleansing.

Meditation (cleansing of the mental system)

There will be guided and silent meditation sessions. You will use the precious hours of the early morning to move towards the state of highest concentration and creativity by turning the mind inwards.

Mantra chanting (cleansing of emotional and energy system)

The practice includes the repetitive singing of mantras and vibrational manifestations of aspects of the divine, a very effective and beautiful method to concentrate the mind and to purify the heart. You don’t need to be a good singer to experience the power of chanting.

Nada yoga (cleansing of the energy system)

Rhythm and melody are common to everything in nature and you will explore sound vibrations by both listening to and producing sound. You will experience the healthful effects of sound on all levels, physical, mental, and spiritual.

Jnana yoga (cleansing of the intellectual system)

“An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of theory”, but you must practice with proper understanding and purpose. During the lectures and discussions, you will explore the yogic scriptures and concepts.
