About This Event
“You are invited to join us on a unique fully guided journey to India, to discover traditional yoga through authentic yoga practices whilst experiencing a taste of ashram life.”
Evolving through the Chakras and Tools of Tantra Retreat
Includes: Chakra Shuddhi Retreat guided by Swami Karma Karuna, Saundarya Lahari Yoga Sadhana retreat guided by Swami Satyasangananda and Navaratri, 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 (21 -27 September) 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 7-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 the Saundarya Lahari Yoga Sadhana retreat (29 – 7 October) formulated and directed by Swami Satysangananda. This is rare and wonderful opportunity to attend this retreat under the guidance of one of our spiritual inspirers.
This is a powerful and complete sadhana in itself and explores the tools of Tantra, including mantra, yantra, mandala and meditation. This year, for the first time it will be conducted as a 9-day retreat and will run during the period of Navaratri.
Navaratri is powerful 9-day period of astrological significance; it is considered the most conducive time for transformation through spiritual practice. This period of time is dedicated to the invocation of Shakti the universal energy which in its different manifestations serves as a force to carry us from inertia to vitality, from darkness to light.

“An experience of Ashram in India, specifically a Satyananda Yoga Ashram, is an essential component of experience, if you desire to have a full yogic experience and understanding of the spiritual element in one’s life. When one travels with ‘Anahata,’ you are received with warmth and loving openness upon arriving in India. You will feel that all your needs will be taken care of with respect and most importantly to you can begin to embrace the ‘India experience’ knowing that someone is looking out for you. I heartedly recommend that if you visit the ashram do think about participating in either or both of these courses, your experience will be the deeper and richer for it!” ~Sannyasi Savita Saraswati
