Journey deep into the sacred, on the slopes of the beatific Annapurna Range and become one with the pure soul of the Himalayas on this meditative yogic pilgrimage conducted on the hallowed land of Nepal.
Cross through celestial valleys, ford rivers wide, wake up to the vision of the blue mountains drawn across the horizon to douse your heart’s yearning and restlessness in the ethereal beauty of the Himalayas as you learn to go deeper into self-inquiry with yoga and meditation on this Himalayan Yoga Trek retreat in Nepal.
Regarded as a revelation of Shakti- the feminine power, the goddess Annapurna becomes manifest in the eponymous mountain range. A deity of harvest and fertility, Annapurna is worshipped across the Indian subcontinent for sustenance and wellbeing. A journey to the site of her manifestation in nature, therefore, holds immense significance.
The path is steep and treacherous, the landscape is mesmerizingly beautiful. Annapurna is the 10th highest mountain massif on the globe and has long been holding a magnetic sway over adventurers and yoga seekers. On our Himalayan Yoga Retreat in Nepal, we will come to touch this splendid enigma, the symbol in which divinity and nature’s might and benevolence become one.
The 14-day Annapurna yoga trek journey is going to be a treat for the soul, rejuvenating you from deep inside. Guided yoga sessions in the backdrop of the beautiful undulations, meditation in the gathering dusk at the mountainside, and observances kept at the earliest hour of dawn to soak in the glory of the sun at brahmamuhurta.
Hatha Yoga is the grammar of asanas. If you are a yogi, you have to train in this fundamental science of movement, mind, and harmony of energies. Literally meaning the coming together of Ha- the solar and Tha-the lunar element of existence, the Hatha Yoga discipline is much physical as it is spiritual.
Yin Yoga is characteristically slow and meditative. The Yin segments assimilate restorative postures set in a contemplatively slow pace to step by step increase the practitioner’s endurance and acute self-awareness. Nestling in the relaxing states of each posture lengthened out while practicing in the soulful environs of the Annapurna Range, you will feel the bliss coming to you like raindrops.
Joints and Glands Yoga
In the pattern of our everyday movement, we miss out on activating many joints and glands effectively in the body. Target asanas aimed towards enhancing specific joints and glands will be introduced in this retreat to help you come alive. The rejuvenating impact of the trek in the Annapurna itself works as an activating factor.
The breath work or Pranayama is the strategic channeling of Prana (or life energy) all throughout the body to feel in tune and full of life drive. Pranayama should ideally be integrative in yoga, present in the observance of each asana and meditation session.
Yoga Nidra or Yogic sleep heightens one’s level of awareness while providing a completely restorative effect on the mind and body. Restfulness, better breathing, and circulation are the perks of this practice.
Meditation should be a Yogi’s natural state and this becomes true in the silence and solitude of the Himalayan heights. Mantra Chanting, Silence Meditation, Kundalini, and Trataka among others are some techniques we will touch upon.
The technique of performing animated laughter to bring joy is a well-liked method to feel naturally joyful in no time.
