Our mornings start with traditional Hatha yoga Asanas. The morning session is usually held at our Ashram, but if the weather is pleasant and the students up for an outdoor session, we do venture out to practice Asanas at Ganga River beach, or in the forest. Cool air blowing from the river gives us the right start for the intensive day.
After the morning Asanas session, it’s time to practice pranayama or meditation for deep relaxation and improved focus. Shatkarma or Cleansing class is also conducted alternatively. The students practice the Cleansing session outside the Yoga Hall, at our garden.
After a long morning of practice, it’s time to stock up on healthy nutrients. Our breakfast is sattvic and consists of fresh fruits, legumes, vegetables, sprouts, and traditional Indian cuisines. Vegan option is available to those who require it. For those who have allergies to certain foods, we make sure that the food is served as per their specifications.
After breakfast, students relax for a while in the garden or their rooms. At 10:30 Yoga philosophy classes are held in which Yogacharya Vinay explores the true nature of Yoga and how it can benefit people. The classes are theoretical in nature, and all the class material is provided to the students. Traditional, Vedic form of yoga is discussed in the class and students are encouraged to ask about any doubts they have about yoga, meditation or philosophy.
We serve traditional Indian food for lunch. Chapati, Dal, Vegetables, Salad, Rice, Yogurt (for non-vegans), Papad, etc. Our food is prepared with care and only a small quantity of spices are used. If the students have any particular preference, they usually let us know in advance. We happily accommodate the dietary preference of the students.
After Lunch, students rest for a while. In the winters students soak up the sun sitting at the Veranda. In the rains, students group in the dining hall. In the summers students spend alone time in their rooms. After an hour of rest, they all regroup for the Yoga anatomy session with Praful. Praful helps them understand the impact of yoga asanas on their body and how to focus on the right part of the body while performing a specific Asana.
After Anatomy, students once again start their Hatha yoga Asana practice, applying all that they have learned. Practicing Asanas is one of the key focus of the program, and over one-third of the course is composed of practical Asana sessions.
After the intensive and exhausting day, students gather around the dining table to share their experience with fellow students. Dinner is served at 7:15 PM and students, enjoy their meal after the demanding schedule of the day.
A well-rested body is absolutely necessary to make the most of the program, therefore the lights of the Ashram are switched off at 10:30 PM, giving full 8 hours to the students to rejuvenate themselves and prepare for the next day.
