Upcoming Intensive Yoga Retreats
Transformation & Healing
– Being at Home with Oneself –
@ Swami Dayananda Ashram & Yog Niketan Ashram
Rishikesh – Uttarakhand – INDIA
Yoga is a powerful tool of healing and transformation. We invite you to join us on an extraordinary journey in the holy city of Rishikesh, Uttarkhand / India.
Yoga has the almost magic power to bring calm and stability into a yoga practitioners life. A calm mind is able to concentrate and focus, and it inspires harmony in thought, word and deed in our lives. Living our life based on values helps us to gain a mind that is free of conflicts and free from regrets. Yoga helps us to make conscious choices based on the values that we carry in our heart and develop a deep sense of self adequacy and self acceptance.
The daily schedule during the retreats includes Asanas (based on Iyengar tradition), Pranayama & Meditation, Yoga philosophy, Sanskrit, Mantra chanting and Satsang.
