Yogic Lifestyle Course
The Yogic lifestyle course begins with allowing the mind to disengage from the external world which is our primary connection and concern. Our happiness and satisfaction, frustration and anxiety depend on external outcomes; we are buffeted by the winds of the circumstances of life.
When we have the ability to connect to our inner self through yogic practices, we are able to achieve complete well-being and a balanced view of all life situations leading to a deeper understanding of life.
This week-long residential program provides an opportunity to spend time in an ashram setting with daily classes in asana, pranayama, and meditation. You will also be introduced to yogic tools and techniques which you will put into practice during the course of the week. The understanding that you gain allows you to carry these learning’s back into your regular lifestyle.
The course concludes on a Saturday evening with the ancient fire ritual of the Maha Mrutyunjaya Havan invoking healing energy, immunity, and strength.
Take time out get to know and connect to yourself. Discover and live well-being.

Yoga is a fact the science of life energy; and Pranayama the most direct technique to adjust the flows of this life energy within the human body. Breathing connects our outer and inner world. It is a function that most of us take for granted, and one without which we would not be able to survive.
Breathing is more than just the intake of oxygen and pranayama more than just breath control. Breath is the thread of life and depending on its actions the entire life process is refined, balanced or thrown out of gear.
When we work with the breath through pranayama we can enhance our prana (life energy), immunity, efficiency, and capability. The practice of pranayama prepares the practitioner’s body and mind for safe and successful progress into meditation.
This 5-day course will give you an understanding on the theory, practice and application of this life enhancing technique.
