Full Description

Kriya Yoga is a set of yoga, breathing and meditation methods; "kriyas" that touch and awaken all parts of your being. It helps you to unblock energy flows, cleanse the subconcious and allows you to reconnect with your true self.

To participate in this retreat you must have completed one of our 10 or 14‑day retreats. (You can however learn Kriya Yoga on our 3‑Month Sadhana Retreat without having participated in any other retreat.)

“Kriya Yoga is a rite, a ceremony, a method, a sadhana. It is a method of refining one’s forces so that the individual awareness can penetrate the depth of one’s nature.” (Swami Satyananda)

“Anyone who is inclined to do something about his or her own development will be able to learn and use this dynamic and deep‑reaching tool. The possibility is there when the aspiration is strong enough.” (Swami Janakananda)

Prepare yourself prior to the course by practising what you have learned on the 10 or 14‑day course, especially Ajapa Japa, and train sitting in a meditation pose. Intensify your practice in the weeks before coming on the course.

To avoid an intellectual ‘understanding’ from blocking the actual experience, Kriya Yoga is only revealed during the initiation. It is taught in steps, so that your body, mind and energy are prepared for each new kriya.

According to the tradition, the advanced Kriya Yoga should only be taught under the special conditions of an ashram. Our courses fully comply with this requirement.

In your free time be sure to enjoy taking a walk in the forest, canoeing on the lake - or horse riding. The wood fuelled Finnish sauna and floatation pyramid give you an extra dimension of relaxation.

The teachers of Kriya Yoga are Swami Janakananda and Swami Ma Sita Savitri.
