The Bhagavad Gita is an exceptional philosophical and spiritual treatise that provides complete guidance for life. It is addressed to the ordinary person, to all of us, and deals with the problems we face in life. The program will be led by Swami Omgyanam Saraswati, who will enlighten us through the eternal teachings of the Gita, the yogic principles and methods to take control of our mind and emotions, leading to understanding and a more peaceful and contented life. The daily routine of the retreat is based on the integrated practice of the branches of yoga used in Satyananda’s system of yoga. In addition to lectures and group work, there will be asana and pranayama practice, relaxation, meditation, mantra and karma yoga. The English-language sessions of the program will be available with Hungarian interpretation.
