Gurukulam (Home Stay with the Teacher)
Inspired by the Yoga tradition, “Gurukulam” is a personalised, specific and individual approach to learning Yoga where the aspiring Yogi (sadhaka) comes to live at the house of the teacher (guru) and receives both formal and informal “hands-on” training.
Type of Event
30 hours of formal classes per week (5 days), 20 h under direct guidance and 10 h of self-work and studies with Q&A follow-up. Many hours of informal time and discussions during the rest of the day, preparing and sharing meal, relaxing or spending time together visiting places and people of interest.
Next Scheduled event: March - April, 2016
6.500€ per week per person in individual setting
2.500€ per week per person in a small group, up to 3 students
The program is adapted to the objectives and capacities of each individual with a comprehensive content. A traditional Hatha Yoga daily practice comprising Pranayama, Asana, Meditation, Kriyas, Mantra etc and daily lectures uncovering the secrets of the tradition through History, Philosophy and Literature of Yoga, exposed with a down to earth and modern pedagogy.
Leaving considerable space for informal exchange allows for a powerful transmission between the members of the Kula (teacher and students) in a relaxed yet very efficient manner. Gurukulam is a 24/7 program, a complete immersion in the tradition of yoga, covering practice, theory, life style, health and wellness and much more.
During the Gurukulam students are often required to share with others what they have learned and integrated, allowing for a deep and rapid integration.
The informal time can occasionally be spent trekking to spiritual places, taking classes with local teachers in Kathmandu, spending time with archetypal yogi in the mountains and forest of the Himalaya or having a philosophical discussion with the Swami at the nearby Ashram.
This course will be taught by Deva Ram. Some external intervention (Ayurveda, Astrology, other therapies) can be added at additional cost.
