You are invited with us on a unique and fully guided journey to the home of Satyananda Yoga®, for inspiring yoga retreats in India. Join us for this very authentic experience of traditional yoga and ashram life that will touch your heart.
The World Yoga Convention (WYC) in Munger is a highlight for 2013 and we will be leading three groups from Kolkata for this auspicious event. Firstly, a dedicated group will participate in seva (selfless service), helping with all the preparations for the WYC. The second group will travel to Rikhia for the in depth Chakra Sadhana Retreat (using chakra focus during asana, pranayama, meditation and theory sessions) then travel on to Munger for WYC. The third group will travel direct to Munger for WYC and then travel on to Rikhia for the Prana Vidya Retreat (a system to realise and expand prana for healing and spiritual awakening). Following on from the WYC, the Prana Vidya Retreat is available on all three options.
This will be an enriching and transformational experience that will give you an opportunity to find greater depth and understanding of yourself and your practice, irrespective of your level of experience. See below for more information about the retreats and the packages available.
Deepen your knowledge of yoga and how the chakras influence your personality, health and mind. Chakras are energy centres in the body that regulate the circulation of energy and influence all our expressions. Experience great depth using chakra focus during asana, pranayama, meditation sessions. Be inspired by deep insights from Swami Satsangi (Peethadishwari of Rikhiapeeth) and integrate into ashram activities. (A 10 day retreat, meet in Rikhia. Includes hotel & travel in India).
2013 is the 50th anniversary of the Bihar School of Yoga which culminates with the celebration of the World Yoga Convention (WYC). Guided by Swami Niranjanananda, spiritual leaders, scientists, doctors, educators and eminent people from all walks of life will come together to share their knowledge and inspiration. This includes lectures, discussion groups, presentations, practice demonstrations and meetings to discuss yogic principles and techniques, and their influence on the individual and society.
