- Yoga Holiday
As the world progresses every day, our lives are becoming more complex and hectic. And, every now and then, we feel the need to disconnect from reality and go into a safe zone where we can relax, unwind, and rejuvenate ourselves. Many of us go on planned holidays every now and then to refresh our mind, but what we tend to overlook is the need to do the same for our body and soul. After all, a balanced connection between our mind, body, soul is the only definitive secret to a healthy, happy life.
To live and cherish such uncoiling retreat time, it is best to involve the best practices of yoga and meditation with your holiday. When you combine yoga with your holiday, you get the advantage of enjoying your vacation along with nurturing the softer side of your inner self.

To put it simply, Hatha is the basic foundation that one needs before they delve any deeper in the practice of yoga. This type teaches you to learn how to align and calm your mind, body, and soul along with practicing a few basic postures. A gentle form, it is specifically good if you are a beginner or completely new to Yoga practices. Hatha belongs to one of the oldest practiced forms of yoga that not only includes practicing yoga postures but also mastering the technique of breathing so you can learn how to control the flow of your breathing in accordance with your yoga. During your hatha practice, you will also learn about Suryanamaskara. Also known as sun salutation, this is a complete yoga series which caters to everything from your head to toe and within.
Made famous by K. Pattabhi Jois in the 20th century, Ashtanga is a dynamic form of yoga which concentrates on eight limbs which are yama, niyama, asanas, pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, dhyana, and samadhi. As you go deeper into the practice, you will learn that Ashtanga yoga has a set of six defined sequences. One must master them in an order and should only move to the next sequence once they are certain about it. Ashtanga yoga is more challenging than Hatha and demands a lot out of you which is great if you require a fully mind and body workout.
A sub-sector of Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa is more about smooth and effortless transitions between a series of strategically planned postures. There are various difficulty levels of the type, however, since it is a part of your yoga holiday experience, we would only enable you to practice a flow that is soothing and apt for your body and health. The main purpose of Vinyasa is to allow you control and align your breathing with your mind and body and in doing so, it intensifies the mind-body connection and helps you improve your flexibility and overall strength.
Known as dhyana in yogic language, Meditation, in simple terms, is the technique of bringing your body and mind to a state of rest and attain a state of mindful consciousness which is unlike any other experience you have ever experience. The significance of meditation cannot be highlighted enough, especially if you have a frantic work-life schedule. While meditating, you are in a completely awake state but rather than focusing on the world outside of you, you are guided to take a journey to the world inside of you and connect with your inner self instead of what’s happening outside.
Aerial Yoga changes our bond with gravity and builds a whole new way of experiencing our body. More and more people are being drawn to Aerial Yoga because of its many benefits and just how wonderful it makes them feel. What’s more! It is fun! Asanas like handstand, headstand, arm balancing postures, and enhanced back-bends – all of which seemed undoable and scary before becomes easy and attainable on a hammock. Experiencing gravity in a new way can be both exhilarating as well as challenging. Therefore, a lot of attention is given to the merging of proper form, support, stabilization, and safety throughout the duration of each exercis
Yin yoga is a delightful practice that takes us on a voyage into our inner world. It helps us to delve inwards, concentrate and listen. Through the practice of yin, our perspective towards the world changes and we start to see it through stillness and softening and it is only then that we truly begin to understand the world around us as well. Yin practice on the mat teaches us how to practice stillness off the mat. We begin to realize that there is a pause between action and reaction.
