Fundamentals of TTD

Ten Transformational Days

TTD is based upon the principles of Yoga and Ayurveda; in these 10 days of the retreat participants will move through these principles as five steps in a sequential manner. Where the initial one naturally and spontaneously leads to the next one.

  1. Relaxation

    Strengthening of the Para-sympathetic tone of the Autonomic Nervous system;

  2. Discipline

    Harmonization of the body systems and organs with each other;

  3. Healing

    Enhancement of the immune response to any type of biological or mental stress;

  4. Youthfulness

    Experience of lightness in the Body and enthusiasm in Mind as the outcome of above three;

  5. Transformation

    Quantum Health, Epigenetic and Neuro-plasticity are the new age terms to define the same old traditional concepts of transformation or Self-realization.

Summary of TTD

Ten Transformational Days

Day 1 to 4 - Purva Karma

Preparation is dedicated to open up the Psycho-physiological space and mobilization of toxins to ultimately eliminate them via excretory channels, through voluntary Relaxation and Disciplined schedule. Regular practice of Asana, Pranayama and Dhyana will set the preparation on track for upcoming weeks.

What is Psycho-physiological space?

Everything exists in the space, even the whole Existence is in the space. On this theory, Mind exists in psychological space and body in the physiological space. Narrow perception of an individual is actually the congestion of psychological space and the reduced range of motion is the congestion of physiological space. This Congestion is due to the Mental and biological toxins, reflects as stress, rigidity and restlessness and in longer run becomes Chronic disorder. Opening up of this space is to utilize it for wellness and cultivation of Holistic health.


Day 5 to 7 - Pardhan Karma

Detoxification is for the elimination of Psycho-physiological toxins lodged in Mind and Body with the application of;

  • Yog-Nidra (Hypnagogic state of wakeful sleep to cleanse the mind),

  • Kriya (Cleansing techniques of Yoga),

  • Marma-chikitsa (Rejuvenation of energetic body) and

  • Panch-karma (Detox through Ayurveda techniques).

What are Psycho-physiological toxins?

Human organism equipped with Mind-Body combination is a powerful Transformer. It transforms food into nutrient, thoughts into Ideas, Ideas into Concepts and Concepts into the event of life. To convert one thing into another needs a process, at the level of body we know it as digestion and at the level of mind it is holistic Intelligence. Inability to digest food leads to the toxin in the body and inability to digest thoughts, ideas, beliefs, desires and expectations leads to the mental toxins.


Day 8 to 10 - Paschat Karma

Strengthening and Toning is all about consolidation and growth of Psycho-physiological being, which sprouts naturally and spontaneously after cleaning up the Mind-Body space.

What is a Psycho-physiological being?

Psycho-physiological being is the true expression of the hidden potential every one of us have, which is to exhibit Holistic health at all the possible levels. A potential inherits infinite possibilities in one seed, realization of this is known as Nirvana.

In the journey of life, if you think that you are heading in the right direction,
you may be heading in the right direction but If you know nothing about the direction and still moving,
for sure you are heading in the right direction.
