We re-kindle the innate childlike curiosity about who you are, re-ignite questions about the world around you and attempt to show you various paths of discovery.
A union or coming together of the body, mind and the spirit. It is a journey from imbalances of these three elements to a balanced state of being. At our retreats you get a glimpse of the yogic way of living. We believe that each individual has their own path of self-discovery. As yoga and meditation facilitators it is our endeavour to show you (in small measures of course) some of the possible paths towards attaining an everlasting peace.
Prayer is when you talk to God. Meditation is when God talks to you!
A non-religious practice, meditation rarely requires for us to sit in some uncomfortable posture, close our eyes and try and “see the light”. Meditation is so much more. It is in the songs we sing, the way our body moves when we dance, meditation is in the love with which a parents feeds their child. Meditation is so deeply a part of our lives and yet we keep missing it. Come join our retreats to reconnect with this hidden art through yoga and meditation.
Mantras are simply instruments of thought in the form of sounds with great spiritual efficiency. They may or may not have literal meanings. They are vibrations of the universe that have been perceived and passed on through the generations by enlightened gurus.
Jump start your system with a mantra every day for clear vision, inspiration and awareness. Mantra Japa leads to a stage of natural thoughtlessness and combined with awareness this is a prelude to meditation.
We learn to use simple mantras as pre meditative tools to get rid of the thoughts that constantly plague us. Mantras should not simply be seen as religious words used in praise of God but as primal vibrations that cause subtle movements in our body and mind. They act as an anchor for our minds in the sea of thoughts
Yoga Nidra or Yogic Sleep is a state of conscious sleep. It is a way of disconnecting all your senses from the outside world and focusing inwards without losing awareness of the body. A part of yoga and meditation it is a method of deep relaxation, Yoga Nidra recharges and rejuvenates the mind and the body. It is a subtle spiritual experience where the practitioner delves through different and unexplored terrains of the mind. Like all other spiritual practices, Yoga Nidra too has various therapeutic benefits like, removal of insomnia, lower blood pressure levels etc. However these are simple bi-products of a much deeper spiritual practice.
Any experience is incomplete without proper and appropriate food. As in all traditions, Yoga too has a specific recommended diet. Satvik food is that which is rich in life force. It is fresh, pure, natural and clean. We of course will not impose any food of our guests but we do insist that you at least try one of our specially prepared, traditional Satvik Indian meals ( Non-spicy). To be on a satvik diet is recommended while on a yoga and meditation retreat. It is said that simply through the consumption of this type of a diet half the ailments of the body and the mind can be avoided.
