THE 5 POINTS OF YOGA

Proper Exercise: Yoga exercises focus on the health of the spine, its strength and flexibility. By maintaining the spine’s flexibility and strength through exercise, circulation is increased and the nerves receive their proper supply of nutrients and oxygen. The exercises also affect the internal organs and endocrine system.

Proper Breathing: Yoga teaches us how to maximize lung capacity and how to control the breath. This increases vitality and mental clarity.

Proper Relaxation: By learning how to deeply relax all the muscles of the body, you can thoroughly rejuvenate your nervous system and attain a deep sense of inner peace. Yoga teaches us how to achieve this state of complete relaxation.

Proper Diet: The Yogic diet is a vegetarian one, consisting of pure, simple, natural foods which are easily digested and promote health. The Yogic diet will help you attain a high standard of health, keen intellect and serenity of mind.

Positive Thinking and Meditation: We become what we think. Through methods of positive thinking you will learn how to entertain positive and creative thoughts which contribute to vibrant health and a peaceful, joyful mind. Meditation opens the door to intuitive knowledge and realms of eternal bliss. The mind becomes calm and steady.

Vastu  retreats include classes daily in the palapas at Na Balam.  Our experienced teachers will guide you through your practice with gentle assists for beginners and advanced variations for more experienced yogis.    Beginners are especially welcome.  Every body is different,  every practice different, and there is never any competition, not even with your self.

Rates are Double Occupancy.  Two double beds, and two people to a room.  You may come with a friend or alone, and we will partner you with a room mate of the same sex.
