Our retreat method is not only implemented in retreats but also adapted to workshops and seminars. Sequences developed from simple to complex are for all level participants. Yoga sessions are not too light which would void the benefits of increased circulation, improved digestion, and detoxification. Yet sessions are not too strong to avoid becoming adrenalized and non-meditative.
The method is instructed meditatively encouraging the body to open in progressive layers without being pushy or punchy. Classes are roughly 90 minutes and practiced twice a day. The same sequences are not repeated over successive sessions. Each class is synergistic with every lesson acting as a step into the next session.
Classes are for all level participants and develop from the simple to the more complex. We practice at a level that is not too light yet not too strong to avoid becoming very adrenalized. The method is instructed meditatively encouraging one to open the body in progressive layers without being pushy or punchy. Classes are roughly 90 minutes and practiced twice a day without repeating the same sequence over successive sessions.
Each class is not a separate entity from each other. They are synergistic with every lesson acting as a step into the next session. Our yoga retreat classes collectively create a whole felt within your entire being. The below sequence samples provide an insight into what is practiced on each lesson. Sequences are adapted to the individual or group.
Participants coming into the retreat, after the group has already formed, will begin at the current sequence being followed. All yoga lessons are ending with meditation and/or relaxation. The Yoga with Perumal Morocco retreat method enables experienced and beginners to practice together.
A joint is any part of the body in which two or more bones make contact. They are quite sensitive and prone to injuries. Those new to yoga without a fitness background or returning after a long inactive period require joint exercises first. The first evening class will be a preparation and tuning up of the body for the upcoming lessons. When arriving this sequence is an ideal first gentle entry step into the retreat. Included is an introduction to the upcoming lessons.
This class is the foundation to the upcoming leg and arm sequences while detoxing the body. Core muscles are in the trunk of the body. Remove the limbs and head then what remains is the core. Major muscles of the core are the abdominals and mid to lower back.
This progress to deeper lower abdominal postures followed by the upper abdominals through sequences coupled with deep breathing. Those with lower back problems are to avoid leg lifting and the boat sequences that follow. We progress into locust through east facing, camel and wheel postures before ending with meditation.
We practice a preparation and foundation leg sequence similar to what was authored by Perumal Koshy and published in Yoga Journal Italy. The lesson progresses from preparation exercises and then into the foundational leg sequence.
Preparation sequences open the hip joints and knees before executing a series involving large muscle groups of glutes and quads. This sequence acts as a lower back opener through the iliopsoas muscles preparing our core for the next day upper body plank sequences.
Cat Cow Core Breathing/ Table pose pelvic tilt, upper body Arm Sequences. We move from non-weight bearing upper body preparation exercises into foundational strength isometric exercises or holding postures. Following are isotonic upper body strength sequences progressing from eccentric lengthening (with gravity) to concentric shortening (against gravity).
This approach enables those with shoulder issues to progress in a controlled manner enabling an understanding of when to stop in the sequence. Head standing is practiced at the end of this lesson. It is ideal to headstand after having a well warmed up neck, shoulder and scapula area. This is accomplished with plank sequences. If you cannot headstand then the foundation along with the theory of head-standing will be explained.
This is a recovery sequence. The previous sequences of the first morning onward did not focus directly on stretching but yet the body was made to feel light, loose and carefree of pains. The previous sessions accomplished the freedom of the body that stretching provides through preparation and strength postures.
Here we stretch the body directly. In this manner, we avoid overstretching of the body during the retreat enabling reduced risk of injuries. Upcoming sequences will lead to stretching at the end of preparation and strength sequences.
The lesson sequences that proceed from the 4th day onward depends on the individual or group that is participating. What we proceed to do is based on feedback regarding ability. We either repeat the previous lessons or combines the previous lessons into more complex sequences with synchronized breath and movements known as vinyasa.
There should be no hurry to enter into new and unfamiliar information especially if the previous sequences were challenging. The deeper goals of practicing yoga postures are to do them with an effortless movement while maintaining a still mind.
Depth of progression into a sequence depends on the individual or group. Above sample, sessions divide lessons to focus on specifics areas. This enables progression without overtraining. Additional sessions include pranayama and meditation and combining sessions with Vinyasa flow.
Please be advised that two yoga classes daily will be offered only if there are at least two people enroll the same date. If there is only one person enrolls, there will be only one yoga class per day.
Mr. Koshy born in New Delhi of South Indian parents began teaching under his Kung-Fu master. After over 10 years of martial arts he began exploring yoga by returning to his roots in Kerala, India. From here a yoga teaching experience grew through London (2001 - 2004), Milan (2006 - 2010) and Marrakech (2010 - Present). His yoga method, recognized by various international yoga journals, lead to him authoring articles for Italian, French and Dutch yoga magazines.
