The yoga retreats are designed for everyone whether you are just a beginner who wants to develop a personal yoga practice, or you are an experienced yogi who wants to gain certificates and learn from highly skilled gurus/ teachers. One thing is sure, that Yoga retreats definitely give you a chance to deepen your yoga practice and to transform your perception of life.

Beside practicing yoga, many retreats offer classes and workshops about yoga philosophy and history of yoga along with the lessons about yoga anatomy and physiology. The focus is to help you understand the roots of yoga and its effect on your body and mind.

Right spiritual environment for Meditation and Chanting.

India is always known as a reservoir of spiritual knowledge and wisdom. One can find the undercurrent of spiritualism in every ashram, retreat, and in fact in every corner of India. Ancient authentic Yoga is always practiced with meditation and chanting for strengthening the inner energy. The meditation in Indian ashram or retreats not only gives you the gift of consciousness of the present moment but also the opportunity to truly relax. Therefore, most of the retreats and ashrams are designed to practice yoga along with chanting and meditation.

Get connected to the Yoga community:

Travelling to India on a yoga retreat is like connecting to the beautiful yoga community. The whole atmosphere in the retreat and ashram is designed in such a way that you can feel supported and empowered with the wonderful new yogic community. A sense of gratitude and freedom comes though you are not known to anyone in the community but yet get connected through the common thread of YOGA. After all we are all connected on this incredible yogic journey of life.

Taste the Yogic and satvik Food:

Indian Yoga retreats and ashrams always offer the purest form of food called satvik food. The yoga sutra defines that, satvik food offers nourishment to the body and peace to the mind. The ancient yogis realized the healing properties of satvik food which created inner peace and calmness. Therefore, it is greatly popular among yogis as it brings energy and freshness to the mind.

The yogic and sattvic diet is difficult to incorporate into daily life which is why most Indian yoga retreats and ashrams focus on the sattvic diet and offer the lesson on how to prepare yogic meals.
