Five Koshas Retreat at Anand Prakash Ashram, Rishikesh (India)

March 18 – 24, 2015 (arrival at the ashram on afternoon of March 17th)

Join Yogrishi Vishvketu for an intensive 6-day retreat on the Five Koshas! This program follows the Akhanda Yoga Family Festival, with a few days off for integration, and the programs could be taken in suite or individually.

The Five Koshas retreat will begin each morning with a holistic Five Koshas class, followed by teachings and focused practices to balance each kosha:

  • Anamaya Kosha (food sheath): physical practices;
  • Pranamaya Kosha (pranic sheath): pranayama practices;
  • Manomaya Kosha (mind sheath): mantra practices;
  • Vijnanamaya Kosha (insight sheath): yoga nidra;
  • Anandamaya Kosha (bliss sheath): meditations.

The sixth day of the program will help to ground and integrate the teachings and practices of the previous days.

The program will qualify for 40-hours of Continuing Educational Units (CEUs):

  • 12 hours of specialized morning practice (techniques);
  • 20 hours of theory (philosophy, yogic anatomy, techniques and teaching; methodology including the orientation and a one-on-one meeting);
  • 3 hours of Transformational Experiences (techniques);
  • 5 hours of homework practice (non-contact hours).

Tuition: $600 Canadian

Ashram Fees: To be paid separately to the ashram office upon arrival for the number of days staying (min. 7 nights). Please visit www.anandprakashashram.com for information or email anandprakashashram@gmail.com.

Arrival and Departure:

Arrival should be on the afternoon of March 17th at the latest for an orientation at 4PM. Students are to make their own way to the ashram in Rishikesh for the program, or make arrangements with the ashram office for transportation needs. The program will begin on the morning of the 18th.

The program will close at noon on March 23rd. But we recommend that people stay to integrate until March 24th for an ashram departure at noon. It is not ideal to travel immediately after the closing of such an intensive program. This would make the program a 7-night stay at the ashram.
