Vipassana - See the things as they really are

Gaiatree yoga is a unique combination of therapeutic yoga strongly rooted in the Indian ashram style, with Vipassana mediation, an incredibly effective meditation technique. Our retreat is located in a blissful jungle paradise just outside of Chiang Mai, the perfect place to focus your mind and body and come away transformed and inspired.

Vipassana is one of the oldest Indian meditation techniques. Long lost to humanity, it was rediscovered by Gautama The Buddha more than 2500 years ago. Vipassana means to see things as they really are. It is the process of self-purification by self-observation. He begins by observing the natural breath to concentrate the mind.
With a sharpened awareness one observes the changing nature of body and mind and experiences the universal truths of impermanence (anicce), suffering (dukha ) and egolessness (annatta ). This truth-realization by direct experience is the process of cleaning. The entire path (Dhamma ) is a universal remedy for universal problems and has nothing to do with organized religion or sectarianism.
For this reason, it can be freely practiced by everyone, at any time, any place, without conflict due to race, community or religion. The basis of the practice is sila - moral behavior. Sila provides a basis for the development of samadhi - concentration of the mind and the purification of the mind is achieved through panna - the wisdom of insight.

Gaiatree yoga is a therapeutic yoga

This is not the same as a conventional yoga class. In fact, if you have a serious medical problem and go to a yoga class randomly chosen, your medical problem may get worse. In a way, therapeutic yoga is more like an appointment by a physiotherapist or rehabilitation specialist and less like a yoga class.
For people with serious illnesses, yoga therapy last an hour in general or will be taught in small groups. In our Gaiatree retreat, we have ordinary small groups with maximum 10 students. Therapeutic yoga is gentle and caring, although it can also be a challenge. So we put a strongfocus on body awareness, posture, coupled with movement leading to a relaxed, rhythmic breathing.

Participants will be taught the therapeutic yoga class, as they can perceive the subtle sensations of their muscles and joints, organs, and inner experience of the spirit. Furthermore, a strong emphasis is placed on relaxation. The approach is always tailored on each individual’s needs, abilities, and reactions.
The teacher / therapist has the task to observe the student in his exercises and determine contraindications. Each participant on a call before the exercise begins. At the end of each course, the student gets the right sequence of different exercises, techniques and behavioral clues and can then implement these in every daily life. Regular consultations are part of the training plan.
The unique combination of Gaiatree Yoga (Yoga Sutra) and Vipassana (Sattipathana Sutra) is expanding the popular concept of Hatha yoga as a physical discipline, in a strong therapeutic and spiritual dimension. There is yoga of self-discovery. In this case, the practitioner develops powerful techniques that can be integrated into everyday life. Thus the unconscious forces of the restless spirit are harmonized and resolved the emotional conflicts.
