YOGA RETREATS

Exclusively conducted by Yoga program leader and instructor, Nikesh Shah, Frontiera Travel organise Yoga Retreats at the foothills of Mt Kilimanjaro.

With the pressures of modern day work environments with the pay-for-performance culture, it has become more important than ever before to keep our mind, body and soul healthy. While different people turn to different things to relax and rejuvenate, we have found our answer in Yoga.

Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost mental well being. The practice is said to have originated in India about 5000 years ago and has been adapted differently in different countries.

Nikesh Shah - Yoga Instructor

  • What inspired me to start yoga?

    I’ve always been an energetic person and love doing sports/exercise. I like the feeling of adrenaline rushing through my body. In the past, I’ve done various marathons, obstacle courses and more that I thoroughly enjoyed but I kept getting injured. This is when I realised the need to look after my body more. I tried yoga and that allowed me to not only open my body but also my mind. This was my first experience of inspiration from yoga.
  • What yoga means to me

    Yoga is life to me. I see it as something that is much more than the class itself. For me, it is taking your practice and using it in day to day. For example, when working in the city (London), it is extremely busy and when on the tube it is completely cramped! I take my yogic breathing to keep me calm and uphold my positive energy despite the negativity around me. The pushing and shoving doesn’t put me in a bad mood for the rest of the day, whereas I hear lots of people complaining day in day out about this sort of frustration.

    I realised that there’s a key connection between the mind and body and it works both ways. Open your body, open your mind and open your mind, open your body.
  • Why do I want to teach what I've learnt

    Yoga has changed me as a person for the better. I am calmer, open-minded, less judgemental and more forgiving. I can offer the physical and spiritual aspects of learning to people from all backgrounds, may they be busy, dormant or even just curious!

    I am not claiming to know everything but I am offering to try and get the best out of you.
