Advanced Yoga Practices ~ 2-day online retreat

The crown chakra

This retreat has been completed. For a list of upcoming online events click here.

20th to 21st November 2021

Time zone - London U.K.

This retreat will be taking place online from Saturday 20th to Sunday 21st November. To take part you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your phone or computer.

During the retreat we will be looking at the crown chakra and the role that it plays on the spiritual path.

The crown is the last chakra to be opened, and is associated with the merging of shiva and shakti and the dissolving into pure bliss consciousness (satchidananda). It is the final stage in the energetic aspect of spiritual awakening.

Basic practices on the retreat will include asana, spinal breathing pranayama, deep meditation using the AYAM mantra and samyama. 

We will not be doing practices to deliberately open the crown chakra during the retreat. Instead, we will focus on gaining an understanding of the whole process of a crown awakening and at how targeted practices can be used when the right time comes. 

The retreat will be led in English. Class times are in London (UK) time. 

To take part, it is recommended to be in a quiet location where you can focus on your spiritual practices over the course of the event.
