A Niche Retreat To Experience The Pure Essence of Yoga
The fundamental purpose of 7 days Yoga Retreat Program is to experience the state of Spiritual Wellness. All the components of yoga whether Asana, Pranayama, Mudra, Bandha, Meditation are designed to experience spiritual wellness.
Spiritual Wellness is the state where we are able to soften the sentiments, feelings, thoughts and aggressions and connect with the positive and the creative aspects of life.
A spiritual Wellness retreat is an intensive retreat by its nature which includes the classical and contemporary practices of Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga and Mantra Yoga.
Hatha Yoga starts with body purification. In Spiritual Wellness retreat, the initial emphasis is given for the purification of the physical body through the traditional practices of shatkarmas followed by the practices of asanas, pranayamas, mudra and bandhas
Raja Yoga trains the mind. The purpose of raja yoga is to experience the mental balance and harmony. Incorporation of the traditional practices of meditation and yoga nidra fulfils this purpose.
Havan (Agnihotra) Taittriya Brahmanam, the classical Vedic text states that “The one who practices Agnihotra in the morning and evening becomes strong like thunderbolt/diamond. Destroys enemies by himself. His enemies remain conquered.” A Havan is a sacred ritual in which offerings are made to the fire while chanting the mantras. The sacred fire is supposed to be the link between human consciousness and cosmic consciousness. In retreat, a havan is performed with the aim to achieve physical and mental well-being and to experience the wisdom and inner clarity.
