Every human being is intrinsically connected to every other human being and also to nature, animals, plants, everything on this planet. But you are often not aware of it because you are too busy with life.
When we stop for a moment and calm down, we realize and feel these connections.
The concept of yoga, is holistic. It teaches us that we cannot live without others, we cannot live without animals, we cannot live without nature.
We are part of nature way more than we pretend to be. Nature is where we came from. During this yoga retreat we will reconnect with this inner truth
Meals are the food for the body & Silence is good for the mind
In Sanskrit, the world ‘Maun’ has come from the root ‘mn’ that means mind. Maun means total silence. Neither speak by mouth nor by mind.
Yogi believe that to attaining higher success in life and to communicate with the self Maun is one of the most powerful tool.
What we believe is that practice silence feeds our brain and makes us more aware of our emotions; declining the reaction to emotional impulse.
Not giving sound/speech stimulation to our mind, talking about it for 20-30 minutes a day (morning and evening) our brain can concentrate better on one task. In observing our behaviour and our emotions, the practice of silence helps not to escape from the emotion and to analyse the origin of that.
That is why for your personal growth, we strongly suggest the practice of silence during this retreat.
-Still it will be an optional practice-
