In Vedic Yoga retreat in India, you will experience the time tested healing techniques which we carefully picked from the sacred books of various religions. You will also get valuable personalized advice and recommendations from our experienced Yoga teachers, which you can easily fit in your daily routine and get the benefits which Yoga and meditation has to offer. Below is what you will gain knowledge on:

  • Hatha Yoga:Hatha Yoga stems from a deep understanding of the mechanics of the body, and uses Yogic postures, or Yoga asanas, to enable the system to sustain higher dimensions of energy. Together we will practice this profound science, for you to experience and embrace the change in the way you think, feel, and experience life around you.
  • Vinyasa Yoga:Vinyasa Yoga is the science of stringing postures together for you to move from one to another, seamlessly, using breath. This helps in avoiding injuries while doing the Yoga poses. This sacred breath initiated practice teaches how to connect every action of our life with the intention of moving towards what is sacred, or most important to us.
  • Meditation & Relaxation:Meditation starts when everything inside you is still - your body, mind, even your thoughts. The feeling of ease is very important for meditation and in the retreat, we will teach you how to prepare your mind and body for meditation. You will also learn how to stabilize your meditation posture, calm your thoughts and explore deep relaxation.
  • Yoga Philosophy:Get the profound understanding of how to create balance and equanimity to live in peace, reap the benefits of good health and have harmony with the greater whole. Understand life from the perspective of Yoga and get background knowledge on the practices you will be performing to have a deeper understanding and appreciation for the same.

* We encourage you to keep a day for silent reflection, since in today’s time; most of the energy is utilized in the distractions of the modern world. The silent reflection will allow your mind to have clarity.

During this retreat, you will be served nutritious daily vegetarian/vegan meals prepared as per the Ayurvedic principles. You will begin your mornings with fresh lemon& ginger tea to awaken and detoxify the body, followed with breakfast which includes organic local fruit salads, wholesome porridge, wholegrain toast and a variety of cereals. Lunch and dinner would consist of many different vegetarian soups, traditional curries, rice bowls, salads and homemade breads. Teas and non-alcoholic drinks will be available throughout the day.
