Are you planning to get away from your busy working schedule or the stressful life conditions for a short period of time so that you can get back to your work and other matters as a stronger and a healthy individual? If your answer is 'yes' , this program is ideal for you. Body and Mind Week will help you to gain psychological and physical well being despite your busy lifestyle. In fact, this program will help you to understand the basics of Yoga and Meditation and also educate you about the human body. It will help you make those lifestyle and dietary changes that will benefit you tremendously by increasing vigor, vitality and the lifespan.

In addition, you will also enjoy the luxury of Ayurvedic treatments which will deal with any physical aches and pains you may be experiencing at the time. Through this program our experts will guide you on how to obtain and maintain a healthy body, a sound mind and to be at peace with yourself and the world.

During the program, you will be taught the Surya Namaskar, commonly known as the Sun Salutation. This contains 12 consecutive postures or Asanas. It is the only asana which is done consecutively and helps increase flexibility. It is essential for students to master this before moving on to the second stage of Yogasana. If you achieve full practical competency in the Surya Namaskar, you will be taught several more Asanas (up to 15 more depending on the ability of the student and the availability of time).

Meditation is the art of focusing your mind, restraining your thoughts and looking deep within yourself. Practicing it can give you a better understanding of your purpose in life and of the Divine. It will also provide you with certain physical and mental health benefits.
