This unique immersion course is an ideal springboard to start and integrate into your daily life a methodical, comprehensive and beneficial Yoga practice. Yoga is now widely recognized for its healing effects on both the body and the mind, as well as an efficient way to bring about harmony and balance in one's life. However, a regular and diligent practice is of paramount importance to experience these benefits and as most people come to realize, inspite of their willingness, it is not so straightforward to integrate a daily practice.
During this 6-week course we will share with you our 20 years of experience and guide you towards a clear and self-sufficient practice.
Week 1 : Introductory & preparatory practice: Introduction to the basics of the technique as taught by Uma & Mahesh, 2 hours daily. This first week is essential to get used the place, the climate and the technique.
Weeks 2 – 3 : Preliminary practice, 4 hours daily. The morning classes will be dedicated to learning the essential Yogasanas and sequences. The evening classes are geared towards preparation for pranayama i.e. learning to use supports to cultivate fullness and restfulness in poses. There will be 3 self-practice sessions during each week.
Weeks 4 – 5 : Deepening the practice, 5 hours daily. The morning classes will last for 3hrs and will bring an in-depth exploration of each asana using various props to refine one's understanding of the “how and why” of Yogic practice. The evening classes will focus on learning and practicing Pranayama. There will be 3 self-practice sessions during each week.
Week 6 : Consolidation. During this week you will learn to become clear and self-sufficient in your practice. We will finish the course with group meal and music (bring your instruments if you play!) On Saturday it is karma Yoga day where everybody will be involved in dismantling and packing the centre.
