Yoga is not a work-out, it is a work-in. And this is the point of spiritual practice; to make us teachable; to open up our hearts and focus our awareness so that we can know what we already know and be who we already are. — Rolf Gates

Yoga Retreats in Rishikesh, India is an ancient philosophical thought that increases your physical, mental as well as spiritual well-being. It combines stylized body poses or Asanas with sophisticated breathing and meditation techniques. The term Yoga is itself derived from a Sanskrit word that means ‘union’ or joins together. The ultimate aim of yoga & meditation is to unite your body and mind with your soul. We mistakenly think that we are just our body and mind, and totally ignore our soul.

1What are the benefits of Yoga?

Yoga essentially brings you closer to your inner self and it removes your attachment to the physical reality surrounding your soul. Hence, it is the path towards liberation or self-actualization. Once we attain that state, we reach a state of perfect bliss, pure consciousness devoid of ego, attachments, desires etc. Yoga not only has immense spiritual and emotional benefits, but it improves our physical health as well. Through asanas, Yoga also vastly improves our physical fitness.

2 How long should I practice Asanas?

A daily practice of 30 minutes to 1 hour is enough for practising Asanas. But meditation can be practised for long periods of time as per your convenience.

3What will be the strength of the classes?

There might be approx 15-20 students per class.

4Why should I learn Yoga classes in Rishikesh?

Yoga is not a luxury, but a necessity for your body, mind as well as the soul. In today’s modern world which is chasing material wealth and comforts, we spend almost lost touch with our reality, and think that we are only our physical body. Yoga science says that inside our physical body, there is a spiritual body or soul or Purusha or Brahma. To lead a blissful existence free of pains, sorrows and vicissitudes of life, it is crucial to real our essential nature, else we get immersed in the vicious circle of happiness and sorrow defined by our physical reality.

5 What is the suitable time for Yoga?

Early morning before sunset is considered to be the perfect time to practice Yoga. Yoga can be done in the evening after lunch having a break of 4 hours. In the evening you can have tea or juice 30 minutes before starting yoga. Yoga can also be done anytime but with the empty stomach.

6Any age limit for doing Yoga?

There is no upper or lower age limit for learning or practising Yoga. But of course, if you are physically ill, and too little to practice complex Asanas, then it is advisable not to try too hard.
