Banish the winter blues and join Daren this winter in south India for rejuvenating yoga and panchakarma—the 5000 year-old “science of life” Ayurvedic cleansing treatments—in a warm, tropical paradise.
Moksha Yoga Center offers opportunities to travel, practice yoga, and experience deep cleansing practices in the southern tip of India with Director Daren Friesen, who has traveled to India each year since 1999 to study with Indian masters.
Enjoy two daily yoga classes and one daily panchakarma treatment in the tropical locale of South India. Daren leads daily vinyasa-style yoga, integrated with bandhas, mudras, and kriyas. Evening classes focus on pranayama, meditation, and sutra study. Daily panchakarma treatments—India’s ancient ayurvedic cleansing treatments—include body massage, oil treatments, and herbal cleansing techniques. Panchakarma treatments promote positive health, natural beauty and long life. The retreats do not include additional local travel, as rest and relaxation are recommended to experience the full benefit of the treatments. Afternoon activities on the beach may include sun bathing, surfing, volleyball, and snorkeling.
