What is Anahata?

Anahata is the fourth primary chakra according to the yogic and Tantric (Shakta) traditions. In Sanskrit the word Anahata - means unhurt, un-struck and unbeaten. It refers to the Vedic concept of unstruck sound, the sound of the celestial realm. The Anahata chakra is physically positioned at the heart region. Anahata chakra symbolizes the consciousness of love, empathy, selflessness and devotion. On the psychic level, this center of force inspires the human being to love, be compassionate, altruistic, devoted, and to accept the things that happen in a divine way.

    "I always wanted a place near to a beach that had serenity, calmness,clean and a resort next to a beach that is awesome. I found Anahata retreat. This place has a great staff to take care of guests, huts that u will love. The only thing i missed is Indian food. Since i dont eat european food, i rarely found Indian food. Rest, don't dare to skip this place."

    "After spending the last few days away from Anahata I have really come to terms with what it's all about. It really is a beneficial place to someone like myself. To learn to be aware, conscious, and observe one's actions is like living all over again."

  • Review by Amber Blair from New Zealand

    "You feel a little lost in it all at first, especially when everyone around you knows exactly how to say, chant, sing, and remember all these complicated strings of letters that make no sense to a brain that's been unexposed to them before and they are so strong in their conviction to the yogic path. Not just the posture yoga that we all know from the gym or yoga studio we attend. The life of simplicity and dedication to a higher power and its presence everywhere. For a non-religious person like me, it feels like a lot to comprehend and accept. But you get into this fantastic rhythym; yoga, meditate, eat healthy, work hard, give back, conserve, laugh, go to bed early, repeat, and it works you from the inside out. What you're so used to thinking is important doesn't seem so important any more and you start to really think about what you're giving to the world and how you're taking care of it."

    "It was a week where I nourished my inner self and had time to explore it. This is not finished at all. It just was the start of my spiritual jourey. In this place, I had the time, teachers and facilities to do so. It is a gift to oneself! Thank you for sharing your yogic lifestyle, knowledge, and practices. I felt ver welcomed and appreciated in this place and by the people and teachers. It was a huge inspiration and got some resources for myself."

    "I immensely enjoyed being at Anahata Yoga Retreat! It was very inspiring and a great pleasure to be in your presence and meeting you all. It was difficult in the beginning, but I learned heaps in the end. I feel like my eyes and my heart are more open than before. I learned to think in different ways, to see more positive things. I also learned to concentrate much better than before."

    "It was good to come home to my loved ones. Never had I been gone so long. My time there helped me to know that I was on the right path but that details in my life would need some tweaking. I needed to create a channel inside me, one to allow India to exist in my day-to-day life."

    "So what had changed? I had. Those seeds that had been planted during my first visit were growing. I was better prepared this time. I was less resistant, more open, and better able to meet challenges from a calm, centered place. I was also better able to watch, witness, and let go."
