DAY 5 - RISHIKESH

Choose from the Yoga programs that can be practiced with in-house Gurus:

Hath Yoga Rejuvenation: Hath Yoga rejuvenation is based on ancient yogic techniques of detoxification called ‘shankhaprakshalana’, which means ‘to wash thoroughly’. When the intestines are rinsed, the residue and tensions are removed. The skin becomes soft and various kinds of skin allergies and eczema are relieved, and can even disappear completely. Pallid skin becomes purer and clearer. The senses are sharpened to such a degree that they feel as though they were “muffled”, and have now been unwrapped. The effects, not just physical, can only be experienced much less described in words. When the coarse tensions are removed from the stomach and abdomen, one has released all the untapped energy, and the body feels light and healthy.

Neeti and Kunjal Kriya: These are purification exercises that are designed to remove stagnant internal toxins or inner blockages consisting of both matter and its associated energy. These exercises also correspondingly clean out energy paths (nadis) and allow more energy to flow within the body/mind complex.

DAY 6 - RISHIKESH

Choose from the Yoga programs that can be practiced with in-house Gurus:

Spinal Therapy: We offer a series of yogic practices, which works systematically from the base of the spine to the top according to individual needs. All vertebrae receive stimulation and all the energy centers receive a burst of energy.

Trataka Meditation: To put it briefly, Trataka – also called Yogic gazing – is a practice where the gaze is fixed on an object for some time and then that object is visualized clearly with the eyes closed, as an inner image at the eyebrow centre. Trataka has several benefits that are beneficial to everyone and not only mediation aspirants. Trataka is believed to have a helpful effect in treating and even resolving several eye disorders as well as improving concentrative powers and mental resolve.

Overnight in Rishikesh.

DAY 7 - RISHIKESH

Choose from the Yoga programs that can be practiced with in-house Gurus:

Yogic Nidra: Yogic Nidra is a state of conscious deep sleep. Yogic Nidra enables a person to be conscious in this state and nurture the seed of great will power, inspire the higher self, and enjoy the vitality of life. With every session of Yoga Nidra, one actually burns one’s old habits and tendencies in order to be born anew.

Yogic Therapy: Yoga has been shown to help relieve diseases such as chronic back pain, diabetes, stress, and fatigue. Apart from that, regular Yoga practice also helps develop and maintain the physical and emotional well being. Since many asanas require bending and stretching, Yoga is ideal for building strength in the back muscles. It is also a great way to improve circulation in body areas that may otherwise never be stimulated.

Sadly, it served as capital for little more than a decade, eventually abandoned for lack of accessible water.

Perched on a hillside on the outskirts of town, this palace was constructed in the 1590s by Maharaja Man Singh, the commander of Akbar’s army, and was largely motivated by the highly defensible location. This is a beautiful and very well preserved structure, built on four levels and surrounded by ruins, which served as the backdrop for the Mira Nair movie “Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love.” In the afternoon we return to the city for a look at the grand Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds). This magnificent structure a façade, was built to allow the royal ladies of the palace to discretely watch the grand processions along the main street.
