Accommodation

Sarsoli Dham is located on the western shores of India, very close to the tourism capital, Goa. Sarsoli Dham is in pristine surroundings, as close to nature, and as far away from city life as can be imagined. The sea is just a few kilometers away, and the Western Ghats; untouched in this area, loom happily in the background. Sarsoli Dham is ideal for those seeking solitude and spiritual solace.

Program

Yoga is a vast science. The practice of asanas, or postures, is the most commonly understood, but only one aspect of yoga. Yoga is meant to give your life a boost, develop positive thinking, radiant health, and inner peace through the practice of ancient techniques for balanced living. The yoga vacation is based on the teachings of Swami Sivananda and Swami Vishnudevananda.

It is designed to help you develop a strong practice which can be incorporated back into your daily life at home. Living in the ashram, following a simple, structured daily schedule, allows you to focus on yourself for one week (or more!). The term vacation usually implies doing nothing, perhaps lying on a beach. Swami Vishnudevananda adopted the term “yoga vacation” because the structured schedule allows you to relax completely in a way a beach or travel holiday doesn't.

All you have to do is be here, relax, and participate. Swami Vishnudevananda designed the yoga vacations (Sadhana Camps) to give ordinary people a deeper experience of this ancient science. You can view the full daily schedule of the program below. In the program, you will have an opportunity to practice yoga asanas, relaxation, cleansing techniques called Kriyas, pranayama, or the science of breath, and breath control, and guided meditation.

In addition to this, you will have an opportunity to practice selfless service and be introduced to the yogic theory contained in the ancient scriptures. In the one-week program, with a specially controlled diet, fresh air, serene surroundings, a relaxed and peaceful environment, mentally and emotionally aligned gathering of like-minded people, educative lectures on yoga philosophy, highly trained teachers and guides, and the practice of pranayama, asanas and relaxation, you slowly become meditative, your health improves, and you have perception of a better way of life.

The program gives you the methods, the knowledge and the understanding on how yoga can become a practical way of life. This retreat, while being a wonderful holiday, offers a profound personal experience, builds a firm foundation of inner discipline. The essence of yoga is learned through a combination of repeated practice and inspirational lessons. The approach to teaching is personal, focusing on the individual student.

Among the many benefits participants report are increased strength and flexibility, greater spiritual awareness, improved power of concentration, enhanced self-esteem and a newfound sense of self-discipline, through proper exercise, proper breathing, proper relaxation, proper diet, positive thinking, and meditation. No prior experience of yoga is required. There is no age bar either. Any person, from any background, who has an interest in yoga, health, peace of mind, mental and physical well-being, and overall harmony, can participate and get all the benefits.
