GOA YOGA RETREAT
March 1-8 2019
Join us as we embark on a week-long journey of Self Exploration and Radical Self Care in Ashiyana, a stunning eco-chic retreat place and wellness center dedicated to Yoga & Ayurveda in the peaceful beach village of Mandrem in the quiet North part of Goa.
During this sacred time we will immerse ourselves in the elements of Nature and deeply nourish our whole being.
As we dive into the wisdom of Ayurveda, India's ancestral science of Life, you will learn a whole new level of taking care of yourself, finding out more about your constitution (think of it as your DNA from an Ayurvedic perspective), your rhythms, and the innate wisdom of your body, heart and soul.
Thru this journey you will experience your own wisdom & deep shift in:
How Your Body Feels As you experience deep and subtle shifts in your digestion, sleep patterns, sense of aliveness and ease as you dedicate yourself to a daily practice of yoga, pranayama and meditation, combined with the positive impact of a clean, fresh healthy diet that will satisfy your tastebuds and flush toxins out of your system, and the deeply balancing effect of attuning to Nature's rhythms and your own circadian rhythms.
** We also invite you to take advantage of the experimented therapists at the wellness center and spa to experiment with the benefits of ayurvedic massages and treatments offers at Ashiyana for total pampering.
Your Energy Level As you charge up on Vitamin Sea and D, fill up on Prana, and feel boosted by the dynamic yoga practices that will stimulate circulation in your entire system and revitalize you. On a soft note you will also learn to honor your body's need for deep rest and taking the time to restore its energy by exploring the art of pausing, of experimenting with restorative practices and the powerful effects of yoga nidra and other healing modalities that will offer your body ample time to relax and release stress for greater rejuvenation and better sleep.
Your Peace of Mind Aside from the simple soothing effect of immersing ourselves in Nature -- walking barefoot on the beach, napping in a hammock, bathing in the soft waters of the Arabian Sea, watching gorgeous sunrises over the mountains and sunsets over the ocean, feeling the play of the wind in our hair -- and disconnecting from the business and speed of our lives, you will experiment with the calming effects of pranayama and meditation on your brain and thoughts. You will feel how this daily practice leads your mind space towards a place of greater mental clarity, better focus and clearer vision.
PRACTICES : YOGA - MEDITATION - MANTRA - BREATH WORK - MOVEMENT & SOMATIC WORK
Daily you will be diving in the ancient wisdom of Yoga and Ayurveda as well as modern sciences like somatics to give you a wide perspective on simple and powerful principles and practices that you can apply to your daily life for greater sense of balance, ease and harmony.
Mornings will be dedicated to breath work, meditation, contemplation and dynamic asana practice to open you up and re-energize you.
Afternoons will close your day softly with some gentle yin, restorative or somatic yoga, yoga nidra, sound healing and rituals, to let go of tensions, regulate our nervous system and nurture yourself deeply.
