We are discontinuing this course at the moment. We might be able to re-start this program in early 2014.
Yoga Intensive (Detox) Retreat is for serious practitioners with prior experience in yoga and meditation. The ten days of intensive yoga practice – holding the positions longer time and more advanced positions - and includes intensive pranayamas (breathing exercises), Kriyas (detox) such as Nasal cleansing (Netis), vomiting (Vamana), purgation (Shanka Prakshalana) and yoga lectures on harmonizing the Body and mind with Mother Nature. The theory subject and Sanskrit text will be decided after assessing the level of students.
The course is strictly restricted for serious practitioners and selection will be done only after personal interview with our teachers through phone or Skype. The course is limited to 20 students maximum.
