Pranayama And Meditation Retreat
Rishikesh INDIA

Shape-yogaprakash

Pranayama and Meditation Retreat organized by/at RISHIKESH YOGA PRAKASH ultimately aims towards cleansing, relaxation and rejuvenation of body, mind and spirit. Our retreats will inspire your yoga practice, by understanding the roots of yoga tradition. The purpose of Pranayama and Meditation Retreat is to restore your sense of balance in order experience health and total wellbeing by deepening your knowledge about breathing, relaxation and meditation. In the modern busy world, a typical yoga class usually begins and ends with postures and we all know that, yoga is not all about postures. Although there are numerous health benefits of practicing yoga postures, but without Pranayama & Meditation, the practice of yoga is unfulfilled as Pranayama serves a very important link between the body and mind. But lack of knowledge towards yogic relaxation and pranayama doesn't allow a yoga practitioner to experience yoga in its totality.

If you are looking for true relaxation and transformation – we joyfully invite you to attend Pranayama & Meditation retreat at RISHIKESH YOGA PRAKASH (Rishikesh is also known as yoga capital of the world and the birth place of yoga and meditation) for 10 days and 9 nights. This retreat is suitable for beginners and advanced yoga practitioners as well.
