Do you feel like taking a break to explore your spiritual side of existence? Are you looking for a place to be secluded from all the daily hustle and bustle? Then come experience five days of serenity with Govindam Yoga’s spiritual Yoga Meditation Retreat in Nature at the majestic mountains of Rishikesh, India.
The retreat is the perfect getaway for those seeking spiritual transformation and spiritual rejuvenation. It is a holistic program that focuses on the development of body, mind, and soul through yoga asana, pranayama, meditation, kirtans/chanting, and enlightening Vedic discourses. The objective is to provide you with an opportunity to relax, unwind, and find stillness and clarity as you explore the depths of your soul.
On the first day of your retreat, our experienced instructors will conduct a series of stretching and breathing exercises to help you familiarize and connect with your body. All your sensory systems will be awakened through the sound of the Indian classical music. Afterwards, you will be introduced to meditation as you learn mindful practices such as cleansing and yoga nidra. You will also be taught pranayama, the practice of breath control to help cleanse, strengthen, and balance the energy within you.
As the retreat progresses, other interesting activities such as kirtans/chanting will be introduced to help bring clarity and awareness to your meditation practices. Kirtans refer to the practice of chanting Sanskrit mantras and hymns which is an important part of the Hindu religion. This sacred practice helps to transcend the mind into a more relaxed and peaceful state which is ideal for the peaceful tranquility of the mountains.
During the Vedic discourses, our instructors will guide you through the teachings of yoga philosophy and will help in your understanding of the spiritual aspects of yoga. These classes will give you an insight into the history and context of yoga and the fundamental principles that shape and form yoga as we know it today.
On the fifth day, the retreat will come to a close with a puja, a Vedic ceremony which brings a sense of completeness to your retreat. This symbolic way of giving thanks to the five elements of nature will leave you with a renewed sense of purpose and inner peace. Many of the skills you have learnt on this retreat will stay with you for the days and years to come.
