Modern Urban Life
Our modern urban lifestyles together with the prevailing economic circumstances cause us to be conditioned into a highly pressurized way of life, which results in predictable physical and emotional outcomes - tiredness, stress, digestive problems, feeling overworked, concern about job or financial security, lack of fulfilment and uncertainty.
A recent survey showed that 60 % of illness was caused by stress, poor breathing and deficient nutrition. Interestingly these and most other symptoms are all caused by habits, all of which can be easily transmuted into more positive ones that will have a rapid and dramatic effect on your health and vitality.
What most of us urban dwellers need, if we are not suffering from serious illness, is to allow oursleves lots of rest, deep relaxation, and some expert guidance in healthy lifestyle habits that are suited to our individual make-up. The benefit in addressing these often deeply-entrenched habits is that we experience rapid and tangible results which elicit relaxation and thus initiate the more subtle inner changes that will create deep and enduring benefits.
"Ancient Wisdom For Joyful Living"
Our philosophy at Ashiyana is that when you relax deeply you realize your essential nature - your inner peace of being. When you perceive the outer world from this state of peace, you are not troubled or disturbed. Joyful living then flows from the experience of being at ease and free of mental and physical tension.
The key to this retreat is the creation of a personalized program. This will involve a consultation process with one or more of our Yoga Therapists, who will listen carefully to you and guide you through your personal program, which includes yoga classes, yoga therapy sessions, dietary suggestions, meditation and massages. They may also recommend a visit to our Doctor of Integrative Healing or our Ayurvedic Doctor. Our intention is that you obtain the maximum benefit from the retreat, and also leave with a clear understanding of better lifestyle choices to support your inner peace of being.
It is an individual retreat to allow you to focus on yourself and your needs. This retreat is also suitable for anyone wishing to simply immerse themselves in the depth of yoga, since it embraces the essential teachings of yoga.
