Raja Yoga & Meditation Intensive Retreat
Deepening Module of the International Raja Yoga Teacher Training
6-16 May 2023
Central in this Intensive stands the practical application of yoga, especially meditation and classical yoga philosophy to modern and existential issues. Themes that people, who consciously live their lives, may struggle with and which can lead to a personal crisis.
This Intensive Retreat is an extra module in addition to and to deepen the International Raja Yoga Teacher Training, which we offer at La Borde Blanque.
This Intensive module is designed for managers, coaches, leaders and (yoga-) teachers, and anyone who aims to manage themselves in the first place and from there to coach, guide and teach from the perspective of universal yoga philosophy and meditation training.
This module can also be enriching for experienced yogis/yoga teachers, who wish to explore the practical application of yoga principles into their teaching and or daily life.
The structure of this Intensive is like our other Intensive retreats and thus will be a retreat for yourself: The days start with asanas, pranayama and meditation on a theme related to the chakras and possible associated problems, as it can manifest itself in physical, and emotional and mental level.
Then there is a breakfast break in silence, followed by an exchange of experiences. We conclude the morning sessions with a theoretical session in which we discuss the philosophy of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and apply them to the theme and the issues we discuss that day.
The afternoons are free to relax, and to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of La Borde Blanque. In the evenings, there is a relaxing asana and meditation session, in line with the theme of the day, but without any further theory.
