Either you are to start your yoga journey, or you have been practicing yoga, or you have been teaching yoga; the retreat will fit you the most.

Some suggested practices

It is highly suggested to do some simple practices which you need to be practicing as preparation of your body, mind, and emotion for the retreat:

  • Movements of joints (from toes to neck)

Do at least five times each joint.

Hint: All joints can be moved backward, forward, and it can be rotated clockwise and anticlockwise. So, this way slowly you have to practice these joint movements

  • Practice of breathing (in Shavasana)

Abdominal breathing, start with 20 breathing the first day and maximum go up to 100 breathing.

Hint: Lie down on your back like a dead body with palms facing sky besides thighs. Keep your eyes gently closed, maintain the stillness of the body. Watch your breath for a few seconds then consciously expand the belly with inhalation and contract the belly with exhalation. One inhalation and exhalation constitutes one breathing. This way 20 breathings should be in one go then watch your breath and when your breathing becomes natural again follow the next 20.

In the first three days continue until two rounds only but in one week go up to 100 breathing in five rounds. After each round, take a pause and watch the breath then sit up gently from the right side of your body, rub your palms against each other to get them warm, put them on your respective eyes to relax your eye muscles, do it for three times and gently open the eyes.
