Description

14 days | Yoga Retreats for Beginners & Intermediate Practitioners
This two week Yoga Immersion Retreat in India builds the practical foundation to learn yoga in a systematic way for beginners, who want to establish a daily home practice. Intermediate students who have been doing yoga but not established well enough in their practice can equally benefit from this beginners yoga course.

Senior citizens or students who are not comfortable practicing yoga in regular city classes find this retreat a perfect opportunity to explore their body, breath, and mind in a safe environment. We welcome all students and customize the classes to their abilities and needs.

This Yoga Immersion Retreat for beginners covers daily practice of meditation, two yoga sessions, and one theory class. The 4 hours of free time in the afternoon allows you to relax, go for a walk in mother nature, read inspiring books for self-reflection, or take some Ayurveda treatments in our ashram. We also offer Private Coaching or consultations with our expert teachers during this afternoon break.

Average group size: 5 – 10 students only. So, you get plenty of personal attention!
