At KARE Ayurveda and Yoga Retreat, Iyengar Medical Yoga is conducted under the supervision of qualified and expert teachers. Iyengar yoga is based on Hatha yoga where props are used to hold a pose for a longer period of time so the healing process in the body is better facilitated.
The use of props, designed by B.K.S. Iyengar Guruji, such as wooden gadgets, belts, ropes helps the practitioner to achieve perfection in any Asana. Iyengar yoga is meant for all as the use of props allows one to hold the pose and get the benefit regardless of experience, mobility or age.
Our aim is to teach our guests in such a way that they can carry home what they have learnt at KARE and continue their daily practice at home. Regular practice of ‘Iyengar Yoga’ definitely integrates the body, mind and emotions.
One to one yoga lessons are also conducted for persons ailing from debilitating or painful illnesses and for the elderly.
At KARE Retreat there are two regular sessions of yoga per day. One session is in the morning from 7am to 9am. This class is dynamic; starting with Sun salutation and standing poses followed by forward bends, twisting poses, backbends, inverted poses and lastly resting poses. The afternoon session is Restorative yoga which can be done immediately after a meal and is conducted from 3pm to 4pm. The poses done are Virasana and Supta Virasana and Badha konasana followed by Supta Badha Konasana. These Asanas increase the flow of blood supply to all organs thus preventing a multitude of lifestyle induced ailments and other diseases.
The morning practice when done regularly can prevent illness like heart diseases, diabetes and arthritis.
The afternoon poses when done regularly can prevent cancer of the bones, osteoporosis and kidney related diseases.
