Yoga is Sanskrit for "Union with the Divine."  Yoga is an integral part of the daily routine at the Prema
Shanti Yoga Retreat.  Through the physical practice of the yoga asanas (postures) deeper, more
meaningful states of awareness are achieved.  One moves through, and past any lingering mental,
emotional, or physical blockages, allowing one's own innate sense of wellbeing and harmony to emerge.
The physical postures are used purely as tools to enhance one's own awareness of self.  With awareness 
of self, comes increased self confidence, flexibility, peace and clarity of mind.  The Prema Shanti Retreats
yoga classes are tailored to suite each individual's needs within a loving, supportive environment allowing
one to delve more deeply into the mystery of one's own divine nature.

The classes finish with sacred chants and prayers for the happiness of all beings everywhere.
