Yoga restores balance into our lives, resolves our inner conflicts, enables total excellence and allows us to fulfil our potential to become complete human beings. Often misunderstood to be simply a set of physical exercises, Yoga philosophy transcends all ritualistic religion and can be practiced by anyone.
Yogasana classes at Shreyas are based on both classical Hatha Yoga and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Our teachers are unique, being steeped in ancient knowledge and also trained in modern teaching methods. All classes are adapted for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.
Apart from the Yogasana classes, guests can participate in sessions on Pranayama (understanding and regulating our breath), Pratyahara (internalisation of sensory inputs), Dharana (concentration), Dhyana (meditation) processes drawn from the Patanjali Yoga Sutras - ancient Yogic doctrine that aims to integrate our body, mind, heart and souls for complete living.
Twice daily group Yoga sessions and one daily Meditation session are included in the stay for all guests. For guests who would like to delve deeper into the ancient spiritual tradition of yoga, a Yoga retreat is structured carefully to allow them to experience not just the physical aspects of Yoga but also Karma Yoga (selfless work), various Yogic kriyas, yoga nidra (deep relaxation), chakrashuddhi and Trataka (candle meditation) besides some rejuvenating massages, community service, etc.
