Trauma & Emotional Healing Session

Gurukul Yogashala is giving every yoga Aspirant the perfect opportunity to attend this complimentary session to start their healing journey.

The ability to experience and express emotions is more important than you might realize. When you’re in tune with your emotions, you have access to important knowledge that helps with:

  • Decision-making
  • Relationship success
  • Day-to-day interactions
  • Self-care

When you suppress or repress emotions, you’re preventing yourself from experiencing and expressing feelings. This can happen consciously or unconsciously.

The trauma and emotion healing session will help find some tools that can help you to:

  • Recognize emotional triggers
  • Develop some coping strategies that will work for you
  • Understand some self-regulation techniques to respond to the situation better
  • Create healthy boundaries without hurting yourself and others
  • Learn to say no without being overwhelmed

Gurukul Yogashala will provide you with a safe and understanding environment where you will be at ease to express yourself better and provide you with the right tools where you can understand yourself better and express and manage your emotions. Healing takes time. And at Gurukul Yogashala, you can take your first step towards it.

Kundalini is the term for life force located at the base of the spine. Kundalini yoga is nothing but the practice of expanding and intensifying mindfulness and unravelling the concealed enthusiastic and spiritual-psychic potentials in aspirants. Kundalini awakening is called the ultimate form of yoga sadhana that is attained after steadily mastering the previous layers of yoga sadhana. This comprehensive training is based on the ancient philosophies of tantras and kriya yoga.

Sattvic Food for Every Yoga Aspirant

Meals of a yogic diet have been served at the Gurukul Yogashala in Rishikesh. Getting started with yoga is easier with the help of our gluten-free, yogic diet. The meal, together with the detox tea and juices, contains a good balance of nutrients such as vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates, calcium, and other minerals. We believe that Meditation loses its efficacy when consumed alongside unhealthy eating. Meditation is unnecessary when the diet is healthy. What we eat has a significant impact on our ability to meditate and practice yoga.

Gurukul Yogashala is located in the Holy City of Rishikesh in the foothills of Mighty Himalayas near the Ganga River. Rishikesh is the home to various rishis and yogis who have come to start their spiritual journey of ultimate liberation to connect with supreme conscious. The same connection you will be able to feel when you step for the first time here.
