At the start of the retreat, you will be instructed into the advanced technique of Vedic Rounding. Rounding combines a very specific sequence of yoga asanas, pranayama (breathwork) and Vedic Meditation to facilitate rapid stress release and expansion of consciousness.
The practice of rounding enhances your ability to experience the present moment in its fullest - allowing you to be more connected to life and open to whatever it brings you.
