Core series

A detoxifying practice session. Remove the head and limbs of the body and what remains are much of the core muscles. On this session you will focus on the back and abdominal muscles in order to stabilize / activate your core. This series sets the foundation to limb based postures. The uses of deep abdominal breathing exercises along with joint preparations sets are also emphasized.

Leg series

Hips, gluteus, hamstrings, quads and calves are well used. Postures range from lightning / chair, double warrior, Warrior 1-3, heel raises and various balancing sequences. Most with lower back issues will benefit greatly while others will feel a fluid yet challenging series.

Arm and shoulder series

Focuses on upper body postures in order to train the shoulders, chest and arms. These postures will range from plank, side plank, single leg plank and crow to chaturanga along with their variations. There is a strong emphasis on preparation for joints followed by isometric and then isotonic movements synchronized with breath.

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.

    "I had a great time on this retreat. It wasn't exactly what I thought it was going to be - I ended up going alone, and there was no one else in the hotel to chat to - but in terms of yoga, I felt I progressed so much and Ines and Perumal were incredibly kind and generous in ensuring I had a good time! I would definitely do something like this again - it did exactly what I needed it do, chilled me out so I was ready to go back into the office with new eyes. Thank you so much for my lovely couple of days in paradise :) ", edited

    "From start to finish my experience of the yoga retreat was exactly as I would wish. I was picked up, as arranged, in Marrakech for transfer to Jnane Allia where I was greeted warmly, made to feel both welcome, and comfortable. My room was large, comfortable, had a door which opened onto a patio, and out onto the terrace with pool. Yoga classes twice daily at 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. were tailored specifically to the experience level of the group. The teacher was patient, informative, but most importantly, extremely proficient in yoga. His dedication, knowledge, and understanding of yoga made my experience educational, encouraged me to learn, and practice more. Food at Jnane Allia was superb: delicious Moroccan cuisine, plentiful, and each day delivered by polite and friendly staff who could not do enough for us. Indeed everyone I met was gracious, sensitive to the needs of their guests, and keen to ensure the whole experience was the peaceful, relaxing, and yoga enriching retreat that it should be." website, edited

    "My wife and I had an absolutely incredible experience on our recent week long retreat. We have been to multiple yoga retreats and yours is the most memorable, refined and educational one we have been to yet! We came into the retreat with 3 months of yoga experience and left feeling that we not only advanced our health, but also our flexibility, diets, spirits, and built the confidence to be able to even practice on our own.The resort was beautiful and we loved the garden property, swimming pools, tennis court, staff, and incredibly healthy meals prepared to perfection.Perumal helped build our discipline and understanding of yoga traditions and practices that we can carry into our day to day lives. Every time we practice now, we draw from the guidance of Perumal and his practices. We loved his life stories and the underlying messages to us, in addition to his hospitality and professionalism at all times.We plan to be back soon and sincerely thank you for everything! Namaste!!!"

    "We spent only 4 days at Jnane Allia but the combination of the charming accommodation, Sarah's warm hospitality, and Perumal's yoga teachings were a truly healing experience. Yoga with Perumal is a very individualized experience, focused on gradual progression with avoidance of any trauma or straining. Perumal has a wholistic approach to yoga involving breathing techniques, stretching/relaxation, and strength development. We felt like completely renewed when we reluctantly headed home. Thank you!!!"

    "I was lucky enough to be introduced to Perumal in Marrakech during a one-week stay at Jnane Tamsna. I had a one hour session with him every day for a week, and it really got me back into yoga. I have done yoga for years, but due to small children and too much work I handt practiced for a few years. The trip to Marrakech was supposed to be the start of a new life; with more yoga, less stress, and more love and greatfullness. High goals! But it worked! Perumals soft being and spiritual presence was just what I needed. During that one week we built up a good basic program for me to continue working on when I got back home, so it is really something that you easily can add into your everyday life very easily. I am extremely thankful to Perumal for the gift he gave me."

    "The yoga retreat with Perumal inspired me to really start practicing yoga in my daily life. I practiced some yoga before, but was never inspired to also wanting to learn more about yoga, nor to improve. Some people just know how to trigger you with their personality and the way they teach. Perumal is one of them. I was lucky to have had one to one attention in a beautiful environment, which also contributes to be inspired. Before and during the retreat I subconsciously knew I had to fit in yoga in my daily life, but it was after I had left I realized I was missing my daily practice with Perumal. While at home I am still practicing with the online course! This is how I feel. When I was a teenager I used to play tennis on sub national level. I have had several trainers, and I still remember clearly the one who got me back on my feet after some years of not having any fun at all. It was his personality and his way. I am sensitive to that. I compared the retreat and Perumal with that time. I needed the retreat. I hadnt have a proper holiday for some time and also had a rough time in my personal (lost 3 people I loved dearly within 3 years, the last one was my mother almost 2 years ago) as well as in my professional life (many changes because of one of the 2 other losses). When I booked the retreat life was starting to get better, but I was exhausted. Still I enjoyed the yoga practice, was even looking forward to it (I know myself as lazy) and I managed to speak English at one moment and French the other. I was not used to that and I just loved it all. I believe that everything has its right time (even the losses). For me the retreat with Perumal was right timing and it gave me a boost. After 2 years of pause I found the play button again and I am grateful for that. "

    "For the second time I had the privilege to follow a yoga retreat with Perumal at Jnane Allia. And again it was a wonderful experience! The combination of the constructive lessons with Perumal and the peaceful rest in a beautiful environment are an ideal way to escape some time from the daily grind and to charge the batteries. Perumals yoga style fits me because it brings my body to a higher level without forcing anything. You notice your body is changing and evolving with the day and at the end of the week you feel so much better. It is really a boost for body, mind & soul ! Thats why Ill come back. I consider this retreat as a precious gift to myself!"

    "After spending a relaxed and sunny day in the medina of Marrakech we flew back to The Netherlands and came home last night. Both Annemiek and I have enjoyed your lessons tremendously. You are an all-round teacher and you have passed on an impressive amount of knowledge and insights. We are pleased with your guidance on dealing with our physical constraints, especially Annemieks back is not a hurdle anymore. Thanks again for making our holiday unforgettable!"

    "Great hospitality and awesome accomodations! I truly enjoyed my stay at this nice secluded accommodation. I stayed here for four days for yoga retreat with Perumal. The food was wonderful, hammam was great and secluded location was the best to get away from the city. The staff was extremely attentive. The place was nice and clean. Would definitely stay here again!!!Highly recommended! I think the yoga retreat went very well. The yoga lessons were great!"
