Option 1:

Evolving through the Chakras Retreat, Prana Vidya Retreat & Diwali 

Dates: 29 October – 23 November, 25 nights (Full Package)

Includes: Chakra Shuddhi Retreat & Prana Vidya Retreat guided by Swami Karma Karuna, Diwali (Festival of Lights) plus hotel and return travel to Kolkata.

Your extraordinary journey begins in Kolkata, then we travel together to Rikhia, located in rural India for the in-depth yoga retreat, Chakra Shuddhi  (1 – 10 Nov) where you have the opportunity to develop and deepen your knowledge of Kundalini Yoga with the primary focus on the Chakras.

Chakras are energy centres in the body that regulate the circulation of energy which then influence all of our expressions.

Throughout this 10-day course you will experience the chakras through daily asana, pranayama, mudras, bandhas and meditation sessions. During your daily theory sessions, you deepen your knowledge of these fascinating energy centres and discover how the chakras influence all levels of your personality: physical, energetic, mental and emotional harmony as well as psychic and spiritual development.

The retreat will include light daily seva duties and there will be the chance to participate in some of the ashram’s daily schedule.

Afterwards you have a wonderful opportunity to join Diwali, festival of lights celebration on 14 November before joining the Prana Vidya Retreat. Diwali is an opportunity to connect with the inner luminosity and experience the joy of India aglow with thousands of flickering lights. Here you will participate in the festival alongside guests and ashram residents.

Take your practice and understanding of the Pranic body deeper by participating in the Prana Vidya Retreat (16 – 22 November). Prana (energy) Vidya (knowledge) is an ancient and powerful meditation that deals with the system of prana for healing and spiritual awakening. Knowledge of Prana is knowledge of the universe. Everything moves because of Prana, it is source, means and destination.

During this 7-day course you will be introduced to the pranic system through daily asana, pranayama, mudra, bandha and Prana Vidya meditation sessions, including practical techniques for awakening the fields of energy present in the human structure.

Throughout your daily theory sessions, you will deepen your knowledge of this vital life force, discovering how the aspects of prana within the physical body and through regular sadhana can help you to develop the sensitivity required to feel and experience the nature of prana as a living flow of energy within one self. And how it can be directed to improve health and vitality.
