You will be attending daily yoga classes and meditation sessions during this retreat. Flowing, traditional Hatha yoga sessions will naturally open the heart and nurture you to a space of surrender and stillness. A typical class will include asana (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), hands-on adjustments, guided relaxation, chanting, and a taste of philosophy. Typically, each class will last for two hours.
The days will begin with silent meditation, pranayama, and a little mantra chanting. This will be followed by the morning yoga class. You will then have breakfast, followed by free time, massages, and then the afternoon yoga practice. In the evenings, there will be other activities that may include meditation, inspiring cinema, and chanting.

She has also studied Vinyasa Flow with Claire Missingham, Sivananda yoga with Charlotte Bliss, Viniyoga with Janet Evans, Ashtanga yoga with Dan Levitas, and Hatha yoga with Nigel Gildersen. She currently is a student of Judith Hanson Lasater for Yin yoga.
Jaya teaches a dynamic flow style that combines the integrity, precision and alignment of Iyengar with the movement and breath awareness of Vinyasa. Jaya's techniques tend to suit students of varying abilities, as they can be both calming and challenging. Most important, Jaya creates a safe and nurturing environment that encourages self-discovery and non-competitiveness. She is particularly skilled at one-on-one adjustments.
