Yoga Intensive Retreat in India
14 Days / For Intermediate Level
This two week Intensive Yoga Retreat in India is best for the students who already have a foundation in yoga, but not regular in their daily practice. Under the guidance of our expert teachers, this program can help you to explore more challenging asanas and pranayamas, which are important part of our asana classes.
The four hours of daily yoga practice can challenge you to explore your body, breath, and mind. The theory classes on Yoga Philosophy and Psychology (Yoga Sutras) can take your understanding of yoga beyond the yoga mat, to spiritualize the mundane daily lifestyle.
We expect that you are physically and mentally fit enough to handle the intensity of this retreat. If you find this schedule too intensive, you may want to come for our Yoga Immersion Retreats where the yoga sessions are lighter and there is only one theory class a day.
Average group size: 5 – 10 students only. So, you get plenty of personal attention!
