Withdrawal to Seclusion
A retreat is withdrawal and isolation driven by the desire for self-knowledge.
Mai Ram Yoga retreats follow a system of Mai Ram Yoga retreat practices developed on the basis of the structure of five elements of nature. At a retreat, practices of each day differ by their special analysis of material nature, which broadens an individual’s existential awareness.
Retreat practices include: discipline, observance of internal and external silence, meditation, karma yoga (unselfish act), training of asana and pranayama techniques, different procedures of body cleansing from toxins, learning control of the mind, rituals of worship and studies of classical yoga scriptures.
At a retreat, the living conditions are modest and sometimes austere (during a strict retreat). A light vegetarian diet is followed. It is important that persons who go to a retreat have a right motive for seclusion, which is necessary for self-development and perfection.
Yoga Camp for Families
Mai Ram Yoga camps are intended for parents with children. The purpose of the camp is the practising of yoga with the family. Parents and children are immersed in yoga practices from early morning till night. Not only parents but also children pursue self-development and self-perfection. Yoga teachers help children to understand the self and the surrounding world, the laws of nature and the order that exists in it, to develop correct views.
The teaching of Mai Ram Yoga provided at the camp broadens children’s world outlook. Art classes take place which give an opportunity for expressing and developing a child’s creativity. Children also have different practical yoga classes that develop their discipline, concentration, bodily health, physical and mental abilities.
