A typical day at our center starts early morning with a meditation session where you get to experience one of many different styles of meditation which allows us to connect deeper with our inner landscape, gain clarity and inner calmness. This is followed by grounding practices in the garden and a morning yogic nasal cleanse ritual to clear our sinuses with the use of a neti pot and warm saline water. Many people report feeling more clarity, improved breathing and lightness as a result of this practice.

A morning yoga session follows which features pranayama breathing practice, dynamic sequences as well as static asanas. After breakfast you are free to indulge in our wellness activities which include aromatic steam bath, mud bath, Himalayan salt foot bath, aromatherapy steam inhalation or self-massage with various tools available at the center.

In the afternoon you will be immersed in a sound bath with the use of gongs and singing bowls, a deeply profound and relaxing experience that is also healing by its nature. Following free time for relaxation in the afternoon you will experience the benefits of chanting as part of Bhakti Yoga practice - where we gather in a group setting, chant mantras and play various instruments bringing forth vibrant and uplifting energy for the rest of the day.

This is followed by the evening yoga program which is focused on flow with dynamic and more intense sequences and after this vigorous session you will be introduced to the practice of Yoga Nidra - a guided relaxation or yogic sleep which is deeply soothing and rejuvenating.

After dinner we immerse ourselves in silence and you can experience the benefits of a silent meditation session in a cosy atmosphere and tranquil setting of our candle-lit yoga hall, where dim lighting and dancing shadows appear to bring our Buddha bas relief mud sculpture to life.

A peaceful and sound night of sleep follows.
