Yoga and deep relaxation retreat for Israeli soldires returning from the Israeli-hamas war

As we reflect on the experience of those returning from

intensive military service, a deep desire arose within us to

offer specialized retreats for homecoming reservists. Our

mission is to provide returning reservists from intense

military service is a space where they can find relaxation and

soothe their nervous system through the wise tools of

yoga, healing sounds, vocal work, nature immersion, and

deep relaxation.

The Inspiring Origin of Our Project

Our idea was born from life itself – reservists began registering for

our open retreats, expressing a profound need that stirred within

them. Following our retreats, the majority reported significant

improvement in their well-being. Many shared that it was the first

time since their return from war that they were able to find calm,

think about other things, sleep well, or simply feel 'normal' again.

For us, yoga is not just about physical exercises; it encompasses

meditative work, vocal work, healing sounds, energy work, and

more. Our yoga program draws from extensive knowledge passed

down through generations in the Param Yoga tradition, validated

primarily through direct experience. Today, even Western science

acknowledges the powerful impact of yoga and music on the

nervous system.

Retreat Content:

3 Full Yoga Sessions: Each session focuses on a different theme,

including Grounding and Cleansing, Flow, and Connection to the

Present Moment.

2 Nidra Yoga Sessions: Deep relaxation sessions lasting 45 minutes,

designed to activate the parasympathetic nervous system.

Accompanied by healing sounds from Tibetan bowls and gongs.

Ayurvedic Facial Massage Workshop: A workshop that enhances

facial tissues, stimulates the vagus nerve, and passes through

acupressure points affecting the entire body.

Vocal Release Workshop: A gentle emotional release journey using the

human voice.

Collective Singing: An evening gathering where participants come

together to sing heart songs accompanied by musicians.

Deep Talks: Participants receive experiential explanations of how our

nervous system works and tools from the meditation and mindfulness

world applicable in daily life.

Professional Team Accompanying the Retreats:

Each retreat will have a trauma therapy professional available for

discussion and initial response to any issues that may arise during

the retreat.

2 certified yoga teachers in the Param Yoga method.

An operations manager taking care of logistical aspects.

A chef preparing nourishing vegan meals for participants and the

team.

Retreat Setting and Accommodations:

Accommodation in Khan conditions, sleeping on mattresses in a

heated and air-conditioned hall. The workshop's location is in the

wild nature near "Yavneel" settlement, next to the Sea of Galilee. A

place with wild nature and the chirping of birds.

Our Vision:

Our vision is to create an ongoing program and offer these retreats to as

many reservists as possible.

at the moment, param yoga is a 'yoga buisness', since the war has started we felt the need to give. Yet, we where not able yet to transform ourselves into a non-profit organization. A transformation that we hope will take place in the near future. we can asure you that any amount that will be collected will be direcly use for those retreats and nothing else.

This retreat was initiated with great

love and a deep commitment to our brothers and sisters serving in the

reserves, and with a belief in yoga, music, and nature as powerful tools

for support and healing.
