Israel Yoga Retreat in English


‘ Self  Transformation through Yoga ‘ 

  

prasad Rangnekar retreat in israel

Prasad Rangnekar teaching @ yogakulu vienna austria

Internationally renowned Yoga teacher, Prasad Rangnekar is in Israel to lead a retreat called ‘Self Transformation through Yoga’ organised by the Israel Yoga Teachers Association.  He will also lead classes in pranayama, asana, meditation and love and devotion in various locations around the country and both the retreat and the classes will be taught in English.  

The retreat, Prasad explains is a  correct mix of  Yoga movements, Yogic Trance, Silence, Meditations, Breath work and interesting discussions on the ancient Yogic Scriptures.  ‘The overall atmosphere of this retreat ‘ he says ‘ is non-competitive and relaxed. The emphasis being on enjoyment and understanding rather than effort, so there’ll be time for personal reflection and time too, to simply enjoy the beautiful nature of Israel’s north.’    

‘Classical Yoga is a truly wonderful system for inner exploration and personal evolution.  Hence, the basis of the workshop is to experiment and to learn from one’s own experience and sensations, cultivating a deep awareness and understanding of the mind and body, finally touching the depths of the Heart.  It’s a journey that brings you closer to the you as you are, generating self-acceptance and self-Love…. which is the basis of Yoga.’  

The weekend retreat is being held at Kibbutz Tuval, located in the heart of the Galilee region, in the breath takingly beautiful Karmiel Mountains.  Kibbutz Tuval has long been an immensely popular accommodation choice for both locals and international tourists due to its beautiful surrounds and tranquil atmosphere and if the kibbutz website photo gallery is anything to go by, it’s very easy to understand why.  The views of the area are delightful!  

If you are coming by car, there is a map on the Kibbutz website. If you are coming by train, you will need to catch a train to Acco, then a sherut ( yellow mini bus) to Karmiel which costs 13 nis, then catch a taxi to Tuval which costs about 40-50 nis. You can also catch a taxi straight from Acco to Tuval which will cost around 120 nis.  I understand that the organisers of the retreat, The Israel Yoga Teachers Association, are planning to organise a couple of pickups from the train station, so get in touch with them to arrange this.  

‘Explore yourself through the ancient path of Yoga, through movements of the body, rhythm of the breath, fullness of Heart and a deeper understanding of the ancient yoga scriptures. Through this retreat we seek to accept ourselves and generate joy in whatever we do to establish a strong conviction of the Love within and thus “Live” yoga rather than just “do” Yoga.’

Mystic Rose is a powerful meditative therapy created by Osho, one of Indias finest mystics and possibly one of the most most teachers of the 21st century.   
When Osho created this powerful therapy he is quoted as saying I have invented many meditations, but perhaps this will be the most essential and fundamental one. It is the first major breakthrough since Vipassana 25 centuries ago”   
 MYSTIC ROSE  is a  3 week course, which runs every day for 3 hours.
 
Week 1: Laughing for 3 hours for seven days. This removes all the inhibitions and repression that hinder our spontaneous laughter and natural joy.

Week 2: Crying for 3 hours for seven days. This uncovers the next layer of repression. All the agonies and tears, allowing a great unburdening and release of pain and suffering.

Week 3: Observation for 3 hours for seven days . Be the “watcher on the hill.”  With a thoroughly cleansed heart, one sits silently in meditation.

Tel Aviv Yoga Classes In English


Yoga is very popular in Israel and classes are widely available all around Tel Aviv.  Finding a studio that is able and happy to teach classes in English however,  is another story.

I recently hit the jackpot.  A stones throw away from my house a new studio has opened AND  its teaching classes in English!  

Guyoga is a new studio opened at 100 Ben Yehuda.  Owned and operated by Guy, a delightfully friendly and talented Israeli yogi who has recently returned to Tel Aviv  after a few years living in the USA,.

He brings with him a great concept.  A much needed fusion -fantastic yoga experience taught in english with fabulous..no…outstanding customer service skills. Its sure to be a winner! 

The beautifully designed studio, offers a friendly, intimate atmosphere with professionally trained teachers of both yoga and pilates. There are morning classes of pilates and both morning and evening classes of Mala Yoga, Vinyasa,Power and Ashtanga yoga.

There are a number of membership options, ranging from a  casual daily class costing 50 shekels through to an annual membership pass that allows you to attend as many classes as you choose throughout the year.

I chose the one month membership and am delighted with the value it offers me. I can go to as many classes as I choose for the validity of the membership.  So far I have attended the pilates, mala yoga and the vinyasa and have enjoyed them all.
