A retreat is withdrawal and isolation driven by the desire for self-knowledge.
Retreat is an isolation, with a purpose of developing one’s individual yoga practice. Retreat is a period, during which a person distances him/herself from everyday activities, aiming for a deeper self-knowledge.
M.R.Y. retreats follow a system of five elements of nature, created by Guru Mai Ram. Each day of the retreat the practices are characterized by a unique analysis of nature, matter and origin. Also, it is important to hold inner and outer silence. In the mornings and evenings people at the retreat get to participate in various rituals, practice meditation and study classical yogic scriptures. During the day, participants practice karma yoga (selfless activity), perform asana and pranayama techniques, learn procedures for cleansing the body of toxins.
During a retreat, living conditions are simple, and during a strict retreat, they are ascetic. The meals are light, vegetarian.
