7 DAYS YOGA & AYURVEDA RETREAT
7 Days & 6 Nights | Beginner
Our Yoga and Ayurveda retreat combines the principles and practices of both yoga and Ayurveda to create a comprehensive wellness experience. Yoga and Ayurveda are sister life sciences that originate from ancient India and share a common goal of promoting physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.
In this retreat, participants have the opportunity to deepen their understanding and practice of both Yoga and Ayurveda in a supportive and immersive environment. The retreat will be held in our school Yoga Vidya Mandiram in Rishikesh, India. This will allow individuals to disconnect from their everyday routines and focus on self-care and self-discovery.
The retreat typically includes a combination of yoga sessions, Ayurvedic treatments, workshops, lectures, and guided activities, all tailored to the specific needs and goals of the participants. Here are some key components as part of our Yoga and Ayurveda retreat:
- Yoga Practices: The retreat offers daily yoga sessions led by experienced yoga teachers. These sessions may include asanas (yoga postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), meditation, and relaxation techniques. The yoga practices aim to improve flexibility, strength, balance, and cultivate mindfulness.
- Ayurvedic Consultations: Participants will receive individual Ayurvedic consultations to determine their unique constitution (dosha) and identify any imbalances. Based on these assessments, personalized recommendations for diet, lifestyle modifications, and Ayurvedic therapy recommendations are provided to support overall well-being.
- Ayurvedic Workshops and Education: This retreat often includes educational workshops and lectures on Ayurvedic principles, dietary guidelines, herbal remedies, and lifestyle practices. Participants can gain knowledge about Ayurveda and learn how to incorporate its principles into their daily lives.
- Ayurvedic Treatments: During the retreat the participants will be offered Ayurvedic treatments. These may include Abhyanga (Ayurvedic oil massage), Shirodhara (oil pouring on the forehead), Panchakarma (Ayurvedic detoxification and rejuvenation), and other Ayurvedic bodywork techniques.
- Mindfulness and Self-Reflection: The retreat includes guided meditation practices to cultivate self-awareness, introspection, and internal personal growth.
By combining the transformative practices of yoga and Ayurveda, our retreat aims to create a holistic experience that promotes physical health, mental clarity, emotional balance, and spiritual connection.
