This longer course offers the opportunity for participants to deepen their yoga practice and fully¬†immerse themselves in a yogic way of life.¬†The course is structured to allow space for periods of reflection and contemplation. Participants¬†will be encouraged to attend each of the sessions offered including Karma Yoga which is an¬†integral part of the course.
Daily Practices will include;
‚ÄĘ Asanas- physical postures to release tension, improve flexibility and increase strength.
‚ÄĘ Pranayamas ‚Äďbreathing techniques which can induce relaxation and increase vitality.
‚ÄĘ Relaxation techniques such as Yoga Nidra - deep relaxation often referred to as ¬† ¬†‚Äėconscious¬†sleep‚Äô and Yoga Nyasa.¬†
‚ÄĘ Meditation techniques ‚Äď such as ¬†kaya sthairyam (body stillness), antar mouna (inner¬†silence) and ajapa japa (repetition of mantra).
‚ÄĘ Karma Yoga¬†
An integral part of the course will be Karma Yoga. This is not just voluntary work, such as¬†household duties, and work in the kitchen or grounds; as Swami Nishchalananda says, "it is an¬†important aspect of Yoga not to regard work as a chore, but rather as a tool to increase¬†sensitivity and awareness."
