It is a Hindu spiritual discipline which includes the relaxation of the mind and body. It is an age old practice which is being followed centuries back by the religious practitioners. In Sanskrit Yoga means ‘union’ i.e. the union of the mind and body. Yoga is the real way to experience the spirituality of the mind, body and spirit. In Yoga the mind, body and spirit are fused to be one. It helps you to maintain a distance between various day to day tensions, struggles, sickness, etc. It helps you to relax after a tiresome day.
Casual, comfortable clothing would be best. But if you are traveling somewhere unfamiliar, you can check with the retreat organizer the local weather of the place. This is to ensure you on the appropriate clothes to wear. However, in some cases clothing requirements are likely defined especially if there will be religious services.
Another helpful technique that has proved to be quite useful to many is imagery. Also known as visualization or guided imagery is a way of releasing stress at the end of your day. It is basically thinking about a place that is your favorite and even the thought of which calms you down. Visualize yourself at such a place with all the peace of mind. Lay down straight, close your eyes and feel yourself to be there with the fresh air touching your body. Feel the warmth of the sun and the sound of nature, as it starts to mesmerize you. Activate all of your five senses and you will be surprised to know how relaxed you might feel.
Lie on the floor with your back touching the ground completely. If you cannot rest your head completely or comfortably on the floor, place a folded blanket below it. While you exhale, bend your left knee and move your thigh towards your torso and close to your belly. Pressing the right front of the right thigh on the floor, try pushing actively with your right heel.
The relaxed community setting gives you the opportunity to meet and mingle with other guests of the retreat. You will meet people who share your passion for yoga. I also like going on a yoga vacation with a few people from my home town yoga class so that I have some familiar faces as well. It is also an unforgettable experience to share with your spouse, sister, or to have a mother-daughter get away.
