About the Soham Soul Space yoga retreat

All the worldly activities dissipate the vital energy deposit and unless on regular basis you find some means to recharge the body-mind mechanism being connected with your core being, you may fall sick physically and mentally. If you provide the right condition, the body can heal and rejuvenate itself.

The body is such a perfect mechanism with great intelligence in operation to keep it healthy and functional. The only thing needed is you need to align with the laws of health and happiness.

Internal relaxation, proper exercise (yoga), proper breathing (pranayama), healthy food, and positive state of mind are the condition required for recuperating your health and well-being. Accordingly, Soham Holistic Yoga School has developed a yoga retreat program which fulfills all these aspects of right living to help people regain their health and well-being.

The yoga style that you will follow in this retreat is known as Soham Holistic Yoga which has been developed by Soham John after a long period of research and his personal experience of 20 years as a yoga teacher; also in consultation with eminent masters and medical doctors to find the most suitable yoga style for the modern time.

The yoga has just turned to be physical exercise and acrobatics in the modern time ignoring the great value of yoga as a spiritual science and the time-tested practice to heal the diseases.

Yoga is a meditation-oriented practice to balance the flow of energy and activate the energy centers (chakras) so that one experiences the fullness of life and bliss. In this retreat, you will practice the scientific yoga with all benefits of improving health as well as your expansion of consciousness. It is a journey from the outer (body) to the center (spiritual heart) of your being to find your true self.

Please register for this Soham Soul Space yoga retreat if you are ready for a positive transformational experience in life along with the expansion of consciousness.
