Jungle Yoga
For larger groups (upto 20) we move outdoors and Satyananda yoga is taught at Yoga Republicís secluded jungle camp in the hills surrounding Amboli.

Yoga Republic conducts Yoga Camps, Yoga Retreats and Jungle Holidays in the forests of Amboli from September to March of every year.

Leading a yogic lifestyle outdoors in the jungle allows participants to recognize the role of nature and the environment in having a direct effect on a person's health and mental wellbeing. Living in natural surroundings, even for a short while, allows the mind to recognize its unity with all creation and to focus on the body's ability to heal itself.
We know from experience that even a glimpse of this uncluttered mind space can be the start of something new in a person's thinking and interaction with the world.
At the jungle camps and retreats we teach the systems and rituals used in ancient yogic practices to understand and be one with nature, without sacrificing basic creature comforts.

Jungle Yoga Camps:
Participants will be accommodated in spacious tents in the forest with western style toilets and bathing facilities. Accommodation is available for a maximum of 20 participants on twin sharing basis. The asanas, pranayamas and meditations taught have been selected to enhance the positive effect of the natural surroundings. A trained chef (ex-Taj group) prepares vegetarian breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Duration of the camps will vary between 3 and 7 days.

Jungle Yoga Retreats.
Complete seclusion and privacy are ensured at the Retreats for those who wish to practise more advanced yoga. A maximum of 10 participants can be accomodated at the Retreats (one per tent unless requested otherwise) which can be of 5 to 10 days duration. Food is simpler, the yoga teaching more intensive.

Jungle Holidays :
Meant for those who simply want to relax in the jungle in a hammock with a book, comfortable accommodation and good food, with or without yoga inputs. Also available to them will be guided jungle walks, bird watching, camping and jungle survival skills, study of the jungle flora and fauna, in-depth study of medicinal plants with forest tribals and evening bonfire discussions on topics like karma, reincarnation or narration of stories from Indian mythology, epics and festivals.

The camps, retreats and holidays being held in the forest are not recommended for patients of insulin dependent diabetes or those requiring constant medical monitoring, although there is a qualified doctor on site.
