This is an opportunity to experience the beauty and simplicity of taking time out for yourself.
Within a relaxed and friendly atmosphere we aim to present a Re-Treat Monday that encompasses aspects of Yoga and the means with which to incorporate these into our daily life.
Throughout the day you will learn new secrets, that you most probably haven't heard in class! You will also discover some cleansing techniques that can be used every day and return home with a satisfied tummy and an enriched soul.
The system of Yoga we teach is called Yoga in Daily Life which was developed by Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda (Swamiji), an authentic Yoga Master who hails from a long lineage of great Indian Masters. Therefore, the Yoga presented by the qualified Yoga in Daily Life instructors on this day emanates from a true and authentic source. We hope you will gain an insight into the true essence of Yoga and find the inspiration to practice it regularly. Regular practice of Yoga & Meditation most definitely helps in achieving quality and purpose of life.
A Sample Daily Program:
• Light Refreshment
• Gentle and Restorative Yoga postures
• Khatu Pranam (sequence) combined with Mantra
• Vegetarian Lunch
• Short talk on health & the Yogic diet.
• Yoga Nidra - a yogic guide to Deep Relaxation
YOGA is more than just physical stretching exercises. The Yoga Asanas, Breathing Exercises, Relaxation Techniques and Meditation are all part of the one whole, which is Yoga. The techniques are inter-related and when practiced together, bestow abundant health, happiness and self?confidence.
The Yoga Asanas are a combination of exercises that relax, energise and rejuvenate the whole body. Both the gentle and the more dynamic movements help to relieve muscular tension and discomfort. Yoga Asanas keep the body flexible and increase joint and spine mobility. Complete beginners are encouraged to attend our Retreats, as are those who have previous Yoga experience.
MEDITATION is a practical means to attain peace of mind. In the practice of Meditation we learn to move beyond mundane content of thought to deeper levels of the psyche, accessing that deep well-spring of inner peace inherent within each human being. Through Meditation we learn how to consciously bring stillness and tranquillity to an otherwise restless and overactive mind. The result is a natural sense of peace and a clear-thinking mind - better able to deal with life’s demanding situations.
