About The Event
“Begin as you mean to go on, and go on as you began”
Had our year of done this, 2020 would have been riding on a super high vibe. Our retreat season commenced with an incredible energetic tide and intention and then….
Now we have the freedom and final opportunity to offer the set of 21 traditional Kriya practices in residence at Ohui Retreat. This program will be supported and facilitated live by Ashram Yoga teachers Devananda and Atma and online by our senior
teacher Sharman from Australia.
What are the Kriyas?
Kriyas are yogic techniques for awakening. The tools used in the Kriyas are the chakras (energy centres), the nadis (energy pathways), mudras (psychic attitudes), bandhas (energy locks) and the breath. Kriyas are well known to awaken deeper levels of perception and lead to enlightenment and self-mastery. The Kriyas deeply transform, stir, cajole and awaken our latent energies. Through faithful practice, the Kriyas can add a whole new dimension to your yoga practice and energetic understanding of Self.
Why is the Kriya Yoga retreat so Profound?
Generally, yoga systems and practises emphasise single-focused concentration. However, this kind of one-pointedness can be challenging to achieve without creating tension. The mind often does the opposite of what we want it to do. We are used to running from discomfort. If we do not like what we are feeling, then we avoid it (by seeking diversions), numb out to it, or lash out with it. The profundity of Kriya yoga utilises the discomfort - the restlessness - as a direct pathway to a naturally arising meditative state.
This 7-day residential course guides aspirants through a traditional set of Kriyas distilled from an original set of seventy that have been transmitted to Kriya teachers within the Saraswati lineage. Throughout the week participants will be systematically introduced to the beautiful Kriya sequence culminating towards short and full practices by the end of the course. This is an outstanding opportunity to learn these practices within the direct teaching environment of the oral tradition of transmission.
The Kriyas are not widely available and spaces are limited on this course. This will be the final opportunity for experience contained within the Ohui Retreat space.
*While it is not required, it is suggested that you have a regular yoga practice in place before participating in this course.
