Program

The yogic lifestyle program is for spiritual seekers; it combines Karma and Bhakti yoga along with yoga practice and philosophical teachings on Tantra yoga. The practice during the retreat will be based on your experience and needs.

When someone is able to act without expecting any fruits from their work, it is called Karma yoga; it is one of the best paths for purifying the heart and mind. This program will give you the chance to experience the effects of a lifestyle based on the science of yoga, which deepens the overall effects of yoga practice.
