“Nature is not a place to visit. It is home”- Gary Snyder
We are more connected to electronic gadgets than with Nature these days. All of us tend to forget the importance and the benefits of Nature. ‘Nature deprivation’ increases the rate of disease in your house. If you’re looking to improve your mental and physical health, the best way to do so is to get outside and connect with Nature. Plants can change your lives for the better.
Horticultural Therapy helps to connect people with Nature through gardens and garden-related activities. Being with plants helps us to cope with issues of real life. It heals people with different problems and of different ages. We believe in natural remedies and therefore our therapists prescribe Horticultural Therapy with YOGA and NATUROPATHY for all participants. Practicing yoga outside in a natural environment surrounded by plants can strengthen your body and mind. Most aspects of yoga are related to Nature and Universe and that’s why many asanas reflect nature and animals. “By putting your body into the shape of a tree or a stretching cat, by exploring the graceful wingspan of a bird or the fluidity of the Sun Salute, by breathing with the same cyclical sense as the tides or with an ocean sound, you evoke a sense of harmony, timelessness, and connection to the universe,” says Jane Jarecki, a Kripalu Yoga teacher.
