What is Prana yoga Retreat ?
Prana Yoga Retreat is a gift to rejuvenate one’s body-mind-essence with 9 days of learning and practicing yoga, pranayama, meditations, healthy food, traveling and experiencing sacred energetic spaces inside and outside. It happens in a conducive space of private villa amidst nature with swimming pool in south India nearby eco-friendly community of Auroville.
Why Prana yoga ?
Prana is the universal life energy. Mostly breathing and energy flow happens unconsciously as part of survival process. Prana yoga is becoming conscious and aware of prana – enhancing, directing, transforming, healing and mastering the energy flow in the body-mind-essence.
Modern times, people know how to recharge their mobile phones and even carry extra battery packs. But, recharging one’s own energy level is forgotten art and science. Or some people have more energy and don’t know how to use it and throw out in many unwise ways and sick/ out of tune with life.
Or simple people are seeking to deepen the meaning of life and self-realisation.
Through Prana yoga, we can rejuvenate the body-mind-energy, enhance sensitivity and perception, expand inner awareness, open the door to higher states of consciousness, feel the interconnection with universal life energy. It nourishes to flower one’s full potential and support self-realisation.

Is it unnatural to control breath ?
Pranayama is not about controlling the breath but to observe, understand, support and enhance the natural process of breath and life energy. With observation, we can find that breath and prana gets disturbed through our thoughts and emotions unconsciously and create toxins/disease/ blocks in our system.
