Yoga intensive retreat with Miluse immerse yourself into the full experience of yoga
In a stunning Tibetan monastery nestled in the Himalayan foothills outside Kathmandu valley, join these three transformational days to discover Yoga as the harmony of the mind, body and soul; to delve into Yoga philosophy and psychology; and to explore Yoga’s practical tools to bring integration and joyful balance into the various dimensions of our lives.
Enjoy morning and afternoon sessions of yoga, explore Yoga theory and philosophy, revive with wonderful food, relax with a favourite book and new friends among the beautiful grounds, find peace with a guided evening meditation, and take an introduction into Buddhism from the monastery’s highest teacher.
On this retreat we will experience how different sequences of poses influence our body, mind and energy and explore the art of sequencing poses to enhance our mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing.
We will see how our breath changes our mental state and how we can use breathing techniques to pause our reactions, taking time to make all of our decisions come from a calmer, more settled place inside ourselves.
Take this time to become aware of your thoughts and how you can affect your thought patterns. Become more aware of your body and how its movements affect your mind. Gently work with your mind and body to overcome your limitations, to experience your true nature and to feel truly present and alive.
Whether you are a beginner or practice yoga regularly, come and enjoy the powerful energy, peace and surroundings of the retreat and take away a new practice to develop and treasure, including:
- what Yoga is from the perspective of its philosophical roots
- how our thought-patterns and actions influence the health of body and mind
- how mindfulness can reduce stress and change your everyday life
- yoga poses under expert guidance through plenty of asana practice.A message from Miluse; “ A yoga practice — the practice of physical asana accompanied by pranayama (breathing techniques) is perfectly matched to meditation practice. The purpose of yoga asana and pranayama is to prepare the body and mind to sit for meditation. If you try to sit for meditation at the beginning of yoga practice, you will likely notice your mind is easily distracted and your body is not very comfortable. The yoga asana and pranayama practice that you will learn is designed to bring more comfort to your body and mind. The mind is more focused and the body more open and supple after a yoga practice. It’s the perfect setup for meditation.Leave the chaos and clutter of daily life behind and slip into the tranquil, restorative space of this Yoga Intensive retreat.
Asana, pranayama and meditation are powerful tools that will take you to a state of profound relaxation, dissolve fatigue and accumulated stress and renew your creativity and passion for life”
