The pathway to peace

In Ayurvedic thought, the peace of the mind and the health of the body are inextricably linked, and the act of meditation brings both physical and mental benefits. Immersions explore a variety of different meditation techniques, from mindfulness and yoga nidra (yogic sleep) to the ancient mantric intention-setting practice of Hawan fire meditation.

The art of movement

Group and individual yoga practice plays a part in all Immersion programmes, customised to meet the wellbeing needs of the individual participant, as well as their level of experience. Led by expert instructors, sessions of both Hatha and Vinyasa yoga lead participants through a sequence of asana (postures), mudras (gestures) and pranayama (breathing techniques) to improve fitness and flexibility and aid mental clarity.

The Vedic system considers the confluence of body, mind and soul as the tripod of existence. While the body and mind can fall under the domains of health and disease, the soul or the all-energetic and eternal Aatman is beyond any flaw. The sister sciences of Ayurveda and Yoga attend to the healing of the sick body and mind and propel the purpose of life beyond just biological existence towards the ultimate self realization which marks the union of the Jiva with the Paramatman.

Yoga achieves the purpose through a very well organized eight-fold sequential process known as the Ashtaanga Maarga consisting of Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyaahara, Dhaarana, Dhyaana and Samaadhi. These yogic processes gradually take us from the simplest to the most complex and finally onto the ultimate destination of self-realization.
