Yoga and Meditation
Meditation is a state of mental silence or rest, where our attention is aware, but not engrossed in thinking. It is known as ‘thoughtless awareness’.
It is here we achieve Yoga! As the mind finds rest and silence, we become able to feel our inner self (Spirit). This can be tangibly felt, it actually manifests, as a cool wind, breath or breeze, often experienced on the palms of the hands or at the top (crown) of the head. It is a spontaneous, effortless natural happening.
Yoga and Meditation can be performed separately or it can be tied up with other programs. We can also combine Yoga and meditation with Trekking and with all our tour Program. We will customize this program according to our client’s interest and request.
We provide different types of yoga and Meditation program. They are;

Yoga Posture is comfortably positioning of the body in some specific posture and holding it. All the yoga postures must be practiced with joy and concentration to get the maximum benefit.
As we have said earlier, meditation is a state of mental silence or rest, where our attention is aware, but not engrossed in thinking. It is known as ‘thoughtless awareness’. Meditation teaches us to focus our mind on one object by keeping calm and peaceful mind.
Pranayama is the formal practice of controlling the breath, which is the source of our prana, or vital life force.

It also reduces side effects of medications and support recovery after injury or surgery. By lessening anxiety and pain, it makes people hopeful for regaining their health. Reiki therapy often clears the mind, enabling patients to better evaluate important decisions with greater confidence.
4. Vipassana meditation
Vipassana meditation means to see things as they really are, is one of the most ancient techniques of meditation. It was taught for more than 2500 years ago as a universal remedy for universal ills i.e., an “Art of Living”. Everyone seeks peace and harmony, because this is what we lack in our lives. From time to time all of us experience agitation, irritation, and disharmony and when we suffer from these miseries, we don't keep them to ourselves; we often distribute them to others as well. Unhappiness permeates the atmosphere around someone who is miserable, and those who come in contact with such a person also become affected.
In order to be relieved of our misery, we have to know the basic reason for it, the cause of the suffering and we need to solve the problem. ”Art of Living” teaches us to investigate the problem, it makes us aware whenever we start generating any negativity or impurity in the mind and it teaches us to control the mind with peace and bring harmony with mind and body.
