Who are Rebecca and Mayank?
For more than thirty years, Rebecca and Mayank, have been immersed in a yogic lifestyle of meditation and Satang (the Vedic tradition of Self knowledge) in India. Having imbibed teachings from the Vedic tradition they are modern spiritual teachers who share this ancient knowledge in a relevant and accessible format to the western, more scientific mind.

In a small Himalayan village in India, Rebecca and Mayank host ‘Retreat Himalaya’, a popular annual, international meditation retreat. ‘Retreat Himalaya’ will be touring Canada in August, 2018 when Rebecca and Mayank will be teaching at various locations, offering weekly and evening sessions, weekend meditation workshops, and live-in retreats.

Rebecca and Mayank’s teaching styles are light, joyful and profound.  Whether you are meditating for the first time, already established in a meditation practice, or already a meditation or yoga teacher, you will benefit from their guidance.

Their programs are focused on evolving Self awareness and include satsang, meditation, pranayam (conscious breathing techniques), Soma Yoga, Fundamental Movement and kirtan (uplifting the spirit through singing simple Sanskrit mantras).

What is Satsang?
The core of Vedic teachings is the knowledge of one unified Self that permeates the changing human experience and remains forever free. Satsang inspires enquiry into the Self through discourse, discussion, contemplation, meditation, and the application of that knowledge in action.

Rebecca’s students find her satsang very relevant to their busy every-day lives. Her genuine passion in sharing Vedic wisdom inspires dynamic and illuminating interactions in her classes.

Rebecca teaches that through becoming aware of the patterns of the mind, one realises they are never bound in those patterns. Knowing this, thoughts and feelings no longer limit a person and one can realise their highest aspiration—freedom from the sense of division and separation that the ego projects.

Rebecca’s guided meditation leads the mind directly to the ever-present awareness, free from identification with the troubles of the thinking mind.

“Meditation is natural and allows the revelation of your true and ever-free Self to unfold. There are no steps, no stages, no attaining, no striving, no labels, no dogmas.” — Rebecca

After meditating with Rebecca one is able to effortlessly and joyfully continue meditation on their own.

Pranayam – Conscious Breathing Practices
Living in a world where our nervous systems are constantly over loaded, we need to learn how to trigger our rest and relax.  Rebecca has customized six simple breathing exercises, from the traditional pranayam programs, to help ground and relax the most distressed nervous system.  This innovative breathing practice can be completed in a few minutes or extended for longer periods - perfect for adapting to a busy lifestyle. 

Soma Yoga and Fundamental Movement with Mayank
The human structure, from feet to head, is constantly adapting to a life of one dimensional movement, which reduces its range of motion and places unnatural weight and stress on certain areas of the body.

Mayank’s movement classes explore how to incorporate simple, conscious movements into day-to-day life combating the stress put on the body by prolonged periods of sitting and leaning forward.

Regardless of your age or ability, you can re-pattern and revitalise your brain and body.

Through a range of non-threatening, accessible somatic movement patterns and exercise, you will:

  • Correct misaligned posture
  • Release muscle tension
  • Awaken sensory motor amnesia
  • Build new neural pathways between your brain and body
  • Build and maintain strength and stability
  • Naturally increase a greater range of motion
  • Increses your energy level
  • Enhance your enjoyment of moving through life with your body.

“Everyone’s body type and varying levels of mobility is perfectly unique. I strive to inspire people to move more and to tune them into how their bodies work and what they can do to maximise their precious time by incorporating small aware movement practises throughout the day.” Mayank

The Spirit of KirtanKirtan
While living in India, Rebecca and Mayank studied Indian classical music. They bring this lightness and joy of singing into their courses. Kirtan is not about performing, rather it is about healing the grooves that have been built in the mind from the pressures to perform, to succeed, or to impress others.

Kirtan simply uplifts the spirit, through the powerful resonance of the Sanskrit sounds ones entire body can be transformed. At the end of the day, the community gathers, the guitars and drums come out, and the program is completed with a celebration of the purpose of life – to live in love and joy. More about Kirtan.
