25 July - 13 August 2018 at the Himalaya Shanti Ashram – our Eco Retreat for Yoga, Meditation and Healing
The Intensive Course – spanning two to three weeks, six days per week – is designed for those students who have taken a strong interest in furthering their Yoga practice and who wish to undertake an extensive exploration of this science. The daily program includes one and a half hours of Pranayama, four hours of Asanas, one and a half hours of relaxation and meditation, as well as one hour of Karma Yoga. Two healthy vegetarian meals, along with afternoon tea, are provided daily to all course participants.
In addition to these Yoga practices, the Course also features one to two lectures in the evenings, per week
The Intensive Courses should be considered a retreat, where a student can devote oneself entirely to self-exploration, change and transformation. The courses are rigorous and the daily program very thorough – beginning in the early morning and continuing until sunset – leaving very little or no time for other activities. We, therefore, advise participants to come prepared with all their personal needs prior to the commencement of the Course. All aspects of Yoga are learned on an experiential level, and dramatic changes are often felt by students. A meeting takes place during the evening before the Course starts and is compulsory for all participants. The program and exact schedule will be introduced, jobs will be distributed and all questions will be clarified.
Hatha Yoga is the study of the energy within us, which rises up from the bottom of the spine to the top of the head, moving through different points of the body, called Chakras. These Chakras represent our different energies. From this Special Course, we shall understand how our Yogic practice brings about an evolution in our consciousness.
