Every day you will get opportunity to immerse yourself in 3 practice sessions and 3 theory workshops. Each of these sessions will equip you with the knowledge and understanding of various facets of yogic wisdom.

Every morning before the session herbal infusions are prepared. These infusions are highly healing and rejuvenating in nature which is based on timeless wisdom of ancient Indian traditions of Ayurveda and Yoga. Purpose of taking these herbal infusions is to detoxify the body-mind complex and balance the doshas.

Every day we start the day with a fifteen minutes session of silent sitting in the meditation hall. This session focuses on self-reflection and inner contemplation with detached awareness.

Practical Hatha Yoga Session on Alignment and Body Adjustment This class is a potent alignment-oriented class that emphasizes the forms and actions within yoga postures. Traditional postures (asanas) are held in accurate alignment. Emphasis is placed on core strength, flexibility and balance as well as concentration and breath control. This class is based on physical postures (asanas), deep breathing, mindfulness and listening to the body. The intention of the session is to deepen the awareness of the body, to guide the aspirants how to minimise injuries in the class and enhance understanding of chosen poses in relation to the effects of specific areas of the body.

Pranayama and Mantra Chanting During this session practitioners will be practicing traditional Hatha Yogic Breath-Work under the supervision of the teacher. Session of Pranayama will be followed by Mantra Chanting to experience the subtle vibrations of the mantras on the body, mind and emotions.

We provide nourishing and balanced breakfast every day. Breakfast prepared in our kitchen is nutritious, tasty, balanced and prepared from fresh nuts, vegetables, fruits and grains.

Karma Yoga is one of the important activities in an ashram life. Karma Yoga is Yoga in Action. The intention of Karma Yoga is to perform action without any personal attachment for the fruits of action. Karma Yoga helps aspirants to develop ability to live the moment without any attachments with the results of one’s action. While staying with us in our ashram you are provided with this opportunity to participate in the activities of the ashram with this life transforming attitude of karma yoga.

Our evening Meditation and Mantra Chanting session intends to conclude the day with techniques to assimilate and absorb the vital energies activated through various techniques and practices of Hatha and Raja yoga tools. Meditation techniques taught in our classes are sourced from most authentic traditions of Raja yoga, Upanishad Dharana, Gyana Yoga and Kundalini yoga.

Vinyasa method has the composition of "breath and movement”. In this session, through the practice we create the stability of the body needed for meditation. The Vinyasa method is built by three fundamental elements; Asana or posture with synchronised Breath, Bandhas (energy lock) and Drishti (concentration). The Ashtanga primary series created by Sri Pattabhi Jois is our base to build and develop this practice, through a series of asanas on an established sequence. The student starts creating his own practice or "sadhana" under the guidance of the teacher who later guides the practitioner posture by posture. The theory of the method can only be understood by the practice itself. The step is to understand the sequences in the series. Daily practice in the traditional Mysore method is systematic and progressive in nature. Poses are introduced to the practitioner according to his or her preparedness to practice. The structure of the Ashtanga practice will create a pathway for the student and teacher to grow according to his own personal development and time.

During your stay with us at our centre, we encourage you to maintain a spiritual journal/ diary. During intensive yoga study which is based on following complete yogic regimen; an inner transformation ensues. Maintaining a record of each and every change you go through, helps to make this journey more mindful, insightful and transformative.
