India Retreat 2017:

Testimonial:
For a long time, I was curious about travelling to India. Last year, I decided to follow that curiosity, joining Romina on her retreat to the heart of India, Nagpur. Over these eight life-changing days, I learnt how to be with myself in a completely new way. With the support of Romina’s gentle guidance and expertise, my heart opened, my yoga practice deepened and I truly transformed. This retreat was so well balanced with yoga, rest time and adventure.  I absolutely loved it! I have so many wonderful memories of practicing yoga, sharing delicious food, time with like-minded people and seeing wild animals on safari. Ah, the sights and sounds of Mother India! Thank you Romina – these memories of India will always hold very special place in my heart.

Our Practice:

Daily practice of three-and-a-half-hours with the careful guidance and inspiration from traditional Hatha Yoga practices taught by International Yoga teacher Romina Di Federico.  Each day a different focus as we tune into the subtle body and our own innate ability to heal, rejuvenate and transform.  There will be daily meditations, breathing practices and journal writing.

 

The Ayurvedic Spa:

The Vedas are regarded as the oldest and most sacred written record of knowledge. The Vedas state that a Supreme Being who created the universe, out of love and concern for humanity, gave the divine Vedas to all mankind through the rishis of wisdom. The words of the Vedas were carefully memorized according to metrical chants and transmitted from generation to generation. Thus the four Vedas Rigveda, Yajurveda, Samaveda and Atharvaveda have come down to us through several thousands of years of oral transmission before finally being recorded in writing.

Dedicated to the age-old science of Ayurveda, this Spa treats all ailments.  A place where any discerning visitor would like to return, it comprises Total Health Orientation with a living experience of being in Harmony with Nature. You can just lean back and relax in the ethnic surroundings and soak in the ambience. So that you return full of life, enthusiasm and vigour.

The Jungle Safari:

Pench National Park, nestling in the lower southern reaches of the Satpura hills is named after Pench river which flows from north to south through the Pench National Park. It is located on the southern boundary of Madhya Pradesh. Recently in 1992, Pench has been included under the umbrella of “Project Tiger” as the 19th Project Tiger Reserve.

A total of 758 Sq. kms of this Southern Indian tropical moist deciduous forest has its extent mingling with the tropical dry deciduous teak. The area is crisscrossed by a number of streams and ‘nallahs’ most of which are seasonal. Though the Pench River dries up in April end, a number of water pools locally known as ‘dohs’ are found which serve as water holes for the wild animals. The Pench Reservoir at the center of the park is the only major water source during the pinch period.

As a prey concentration is high along the Pench River, tiger usually inhabits frequents this belt. Leopard though generally operates in the peripheral areas but are occasionally seen in the deep forest also. Jungle cats are commonly seen. Leopard cats, small Indian civets and palm civets are common but seen rarely.  This National Park is carefully and mindfully cared for with full time Park carers, the animals our protected and adored from afar.
