Yoga Retreat for Beginners


You have never done yoga in your life before – or very little – but you would like to use your holiday in India to try it out? You want to get to know the basics of yoga and maybe be able to continue doing yoga at home on your own? Then you can choose this yoga retreat for beginners at our Ashram!

Daily you will have two hours of yoga practice with one of our experienced yoga teachers who will guide you gently through the basic yoga postures and breathing techniques. If yoga is fully new to you, you will get an introduction to the benefits that your body and mind can get from this ancient practice.

You feel how parts of your body move that were previously stiff and near to unmovable. Daily practice makes you flexible and thus reach further than you ever thought possible. Of course the physical movement has a positive effect on your mental situation as well! Usually a regular yoga practice leads to a more balanced, relaxed and happier self.

If you would like to enjoy all these benefits at the Ashram, you can choose this Yoga Retreat for Beginners.
