Why learn Kriya Yoga? By practising Kriya Yoga the mind returns to harmony, in the same way as Hatha Yoga (asanas) brings the body in harmony.
Kriya Yoga On the path of yoga. 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 in Kriya Yoga is the subtle connection between the breath and consciousness.
Kriya Yoga was made famous in the west by Paramahansa Yogananda. He wrote the book "Autobiography of a Yogi" which became a 'most read' for all who are interested in yoga
In this retreat retreat If you are new to Kriya Yoga meditation the initial level will be given. If this practice is successful and the wish is there it will be possible on a later stage to take an initiation in the full practise. The course contains of a structured practice of Kriya Yoga and Mindfulness meditation combined with Kriya Hatha Yoga, Nidra Yoga, Bhajan and Healthy food.
Silent retreat? The purpose of Kriya Yoga is to develop inner silence so speaking little for 10 days will support this development a lot. We will keep silence inside the meditation centre after day 1. But if you wish you are free to have small conversations when you go for a walk outside the centre.
