A holiday is great, a yoga holiday is even better. A typical holiday usually gives little rest to our body, mind and senses, and we return home exhausted and needing a holiday from our holiday.
The Yoga Holiday is a great way to go on vacation and really feel a difference. It is designed to give you an experience of the yogic lifestyle based on the ancient teachings of India to recharge your batteries and rejuvenate your body and mind to leave you feeling inspired, refreshed, centred and peaceful.
Yoga Holidays participants are required to follow the daily schedule, which includes plenty of time for socializing, learning, and relaxing. All guests attend morning and evening medtitations, the afternoon lecture and both yoga classes each day to make the most of your stay and to contribute to the community experience.
Each day starts with meditation practice and ends with silent time and Kirtan, a practice that is at the core of yoga life. Here, we meditate silently, join together to joyfully chant and listen to an inspiring talk or reading on yoga. Yoga asana classes are held twice a day at 7.30 am and 3.30 pm. The classes are based on the classical yoga asanas, along with pranayama and sun salutations. The focus is on mastering the basic asanas from which variations are then added to further strengthen the practice.
All levels of practitioners from beginners to advanced are welcome.
All Hatha Yoga classes and lectures will be conducted by Yoga Vana team members with extensive teaching experience in all aspects of the practice of Yoga.
Mani Raman, lead teacher at Yoga Vana, will guide the morning and evening meditations and satsang.
