Retreat information

With everything from basic to complex sequences, the Yoga with Perumal Retreat Method has something for everyone. On the one hand, the light yoga sessions lead to improved digestion, detoxification, and increased circulation. On the other, they never lose the meditative feature everyone all loves from yoga.

Instructed meditatively, the idea is to open the body in progressive layers without ever producing too much adrenaline and losing focus. No repeated sessions. Learn to settle into the practice and let go of the outside world. Open the breath and unite breath and movement while aligning the skeletal system, relieving constipation, improving digestion and detoxifying the body.

Protect your joints through the practice of preparation sets that move synovial fluid, “PROPERLY” warm-up the tendons and ligaments enabling better mobility. Create core strength, synergistically increase blood flow to the muscles preparing muscle fibers for deep stretching in order to release muscle and spinal tension enabling a more oxygenated body.

Build up concentration, calm, and restore your body and mind, balance your hormonal levels leading to deeper meditation/relaxation at the end of the practice. Eventually begin to feel energized, yet calm and clear. Return to your true self. It’s all about the relaxing journey, and this is why each lesson follows the one before it. Yoga with Perumal Morocco want you to experience your whole being with yoga retreat classes.

Here, you’ll learn more about sample sequences and what you’ll gain from the lessons. Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, all sequences are tailored to the individual or group. Yoga with Perumal Morocco believe that beginners and experts can enjoy the yoga with Perumal method together, and each session ends with a meditation and/or relaxation period.

Timing of sessions (Marrakech, Morocco, GMT+1)

There are timeslots you may choose per day, from Sunday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 to 7 p.m. Below are the lessons and focuses per day:

First lesson - preparation, stretch, meditate

Since they connect our delicate bones, joints play a pivotal role in the human body. Often prone to injuries, it’s important to start with joint exercises on your arrival since periods of inactivity can weaken these areas.

At retreats with Yoga with Perumal Morocco in Italy and Morocco, for example, the first evening is all about preparation. You will get comfortable with each other, prepare for what’s to come, and this provides a gentle first step into your yoga retreat; a great way to ease the nerves. Yoga with Perumal Morocco will also go into some meditation, light stretching, and talk about what will come in the following lessons.

Second lesson - core detox

While detoxing, this first morning builds the foundation of arm and leg sequences. Focusing on the mid back, lower back, and abdominals, this is what remains once the limbs are removed and they’re important for overall health.

While always remembering deep breathing, you’ll start with deeper lower abdominal postures and use sequences to reach the upper abdominals (and more!).

If you’re worried about an existing lower back injury, you’ll be advised to skip the boat sequences and avoid leg lifting. Before the meditation at the end, you’ll progress through east facing, locust, wheel, and camel postures.

Third lesson - foundation leg sequence

Similar to that authored and published by head teacher Perumal Koshy in Yoga Journal Italy, the next step is to go through a preparation and foundation leg sequence. With the preparation exercises, these are designed to open the knees and hip joints.

From here, you can go into the larger muscle groups such as the quads and glutes. Interestingly, this is considered the best way to open the lower back via the iliopsoas muscles. Not only is this positive in itself, it sets the stage for the upper body plank sequences in the third day.

Fourth lesson - plank sequences with head-standing

While enjoying an online retreat, the fourth lesson will involve upper body arm sequences with cat-cow core breathing and variations to open up. Although starting with upper body preparation exercises (nonweight bearing), you progress into holding postures (or foundational strength isometric exercises).

Additionally, you’ll enjoy eccentric lengthening with gravity, concentric shortening against gravity, and isotonic upper body strength sequences. With all of these exercises, even those with shoulder problems may follow the class in a controlled way.

Soon enough, it’s easy to know when to stop in the sequence. At the end of the lesson, those confident and comfortable enough will try a headstand. At this point, the scapula, neck, and shoulder areas will be warmed up, allowing for safer headstands.

If a headstand isn’t an option, this isn’t a problem. Instead, Yoga with Perumal Morocco will explain the foundation and the theory.

Fifth lesson - stretching and meditation

At this point, it’s time for a recovery sequence after such sessions of preparation and strength work. In the first morning, the body felt loose and light despite there not being a strong focus on stretching.

Through preparation and strength postures alone, you were able to achieve freedom in the body. In the third evening, it’s time to stretch the body deeply focusing on large muscle group stretches. The stretching is important for recovery, alignment and meditation. You stretch in a manner that is also appropriate for your conditions in order to avoid aggravation or causing injuries.

Now that the preparation and strength sequences have been completed prior to this session, stretching is felt deeply from the increased circulation of the previous sequences.

Sixth lesson onward

What happens from here? Well, it depends on the group, yourself, the number of lessons to be done, and more. Normally, Yoga with Perumal Morocco will get feedback from you and the group to consider ability. While Yoga with Perumal Morocco might repeat a lesson or consider taking previous lessons and introduce more complex sequences.

If you or the group found the previous sessions a little difficult, there’s no need to rush into learning even more new exercises and techniques. Instead, Yoga with Perumal Morocco want you to master what you have learned and ensure you can do them effortlessly with a still and relaxed mind.
