At Villa Kali Ma, you will be supported by a team of teachers who have been where you are and have transformed their lives. Teachers will lead daily practices of meditation and Asana (physical yoga exercises), which will be modified to each person’s fitness level and ability. Pranayama, a yoga breathing exercise, calms the mind to create space for spiritual experience and will be part of our daily practice as well. This is a nurturing and healing program of spiritual growth where you will be shown the pathway to self-realization and learn to truly love and value yourself. If you come with willingness and an open mind, this can be an amazing transformational experience.
