The sun is shining on our paradise island, so why not join us to learn, laugh, play and grow. We are proud to bring you our newest offering, dive deeper with us in your yoga adventure, on our exciting Pranayama retreat with Jigyasa Shiv.
Right from the moment we are born to the moment we leave this earth, our Breath is the one thing that stays with us.
Mastering your breath is an essential part of having a healthy, happy and balanced Life. “Breath” is the bridge between mind & body, so by utilising proper breathing techniques one gets mastery over the mind. This leads to a joyful and peaceful state for a vibrant and healthy life.
In these busy times, we don’t have the luxury to go to breath-work classes each day, but we can always learn the same and create a Home-practice.
Pranayama is the conscious awareness of breath; the life-force that fuels the body and mind. Its an art of expanding our vital energy. A daily practice of Pranayama consists of different breathing techniques which help you relax and rejuvenate at the same time.
- Introduction to Pranayama and its role in Yoga & Life.
- Understanding the importance of Breath and ways to Master it.
- Breathing techniques to enhance energy level, reduce tension, help cure sinus, asthma, blood pressure, thyroid, PCOD, get rid of stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, skin conditions etc.
- Importance of Pranayama on Physical, Mental, Emotional, Social and Spiritual levels.
- Designing and creating a viable Home Practice.
The course is perfect for you if:
- you are dealing with any physical or emotional issues.
- you have a busy lifestyle but seek balance.
- you are good at giving out energy - the carers, the listeners, the givers.
- you wish to meditate, or enhance the effects of an established meditation practice.
With great food, amazing classes, sunshine and all the rejuvenation you need.
