Why learn Kriya? By practise the technique Kriya, the mind returns to harmony. In addition, Hatha Yoga Movement (asanas) brings the body into balance. In this retreat the initial level of Kriya Yoga practice will be given. Full initiation can be given. The course contains of a structured practice of Kriya Yoga and Mindfulness meditation combined with Kriya Hatha Yoga, Nidra Yoga, Bhajans and Healthy food.
Silent retreat? The purpose of Kriya Yoga is to develop inner silence. Keeping noble silence for 10 days will support this development so much. We will keep silence inside the meditation centre after day 1. Small conversations to a walk outside the centre is understood.
Kriya Yoga belongs to the inner level of yoga ‘meditation’ and was first described by Patanjali in his “Yoga Sutras” 400 BC. The practice is based on the breath, the attention and the 7 chakras. Through the practice of Kriya Yoga the human evolution is enhanced and Samadhi can be attained. The secret lies in the subtle connection between the breath and consciousness. Kriya Yoga was made famous in the west by Paramahansa Yogananda. His book “Autobiography of a Yogi” became a ‘must read’ for all who are interested in yoga
