Shanti Yoga Ashram welcomes you to discover how yoga can lead you deep into the purity of your heart, the hidden peace of your mind and the natural blissfulness of your spirit. Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas with a picturesque view, less than one hour from Kathmandu, Shanti Yoga Ashram is the perfect sanctuary to go deeply into the essence of yoga. Find your way to generate the energy that is dormant inside of you to use it for your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health!
Shanti Yoga Ashram provides guests with an ashram environment in a homestay setting, surrounded by the splendor of nature. This affords a cozy environment conducive to spiritual practice where those who stay at the ashram can get a taste of authentic yogic lifestyle along with traditional Nepalese culture. The ashram provides a few private rooms and shared dorm room facilities. Availability is based on current occupancy.
You can stay in the guesthouse, bamboo house or in one of the huts. Water for bathing is powered by solar. Electrical outages are part of life in Nepal, however, it is easy to adapt since Shanti Yoga Ashram has solar energy for heating water and gas or fire for cooking. They have lights that are battery-powered, not dependent on the coming and going of electricity.
Tan means expansion and tra means freedom. Tantra is the art of to be free from all physical, mental and spiritual bondage through the expansion of energy while expanding yourselves to experience your own wholeness as a balance of masculine and feminine.
Divine bliss is experienced when shiva (consciousness) and shakti (energy) unite to create pure consciousness. This union of masculine and feminine energies can be cultivated individually or with a partner. Sexual energy is the energy of creation, the most powerful energy available to you. As you gain skill in sensing and moving this force, you open up the possibility of awakening and manifesting your latent divinity by awakening the power of Kundalini.
Guruji will guide you how to rotate prana through subtle pathways in the body, transmuting sexual energy into spiritual energy. Due to the flow of oxygenated blood flow through the nervous system, a bioplasmic reaction is created, which causes every nerve in the body to vibrate at a higher frequency activating dormant cells in the brain, leading to an expanded state of consciousness.
Yantra literally means instrument. It is a geometrical complex spiritual instrument in Tantra practice for concentration and meditation. When the mind is concentrated in Yantra, the mental chatter stops and eventually the object of help, the Yantra, is dropped and the mind can remain empty and silent. The practice of Yantra meditation brings about bhukti and mukti, enjoyment and liberation. You will go deeply into a meditation on Shiva, Kali, and other Yantras to activate consciousness, will-force and other dormant powers.
Note: Please arrive in the late afternoon or evening before the course start date. Dinner is included.
This yoga retreat will take place in Machhegaun, Nepal.
