What you will Experience…..
This 300 plus hour Laya Yoga and Meditation Teacher Training will initiate the new student into the traditional and esoteric techniques and practices of a Laya/Kriya Yoga/ Meditation Lifestyle.
It is offered in an intensive format (Five 5 day trainings during the weekdays) to give you the spiritual community feeling of connectedness and the sense that ‘we are all in this together”.
And included in this program, there are several extra courses to compliment your once a month week training to keep you inspired throughout the rest of the year.
Laya Yoga and meditation is for serious students of meditation, yoga and enlightenment. Similar to Kundalini Yoga, Laya yoga focuses on the Chakra system.
You will experience and master…..
- absorptive concentration practices to obliterate the ego,
- Mantra yoga (repetition of God names),
- NadaYoga (the yoga of listening to Divine vibrations),
- Mudras (hand gestures to open nadis or channels),
- Bandhas, (body locks to preserve energy),
- Pranayam (Breathing exercises that lead to kumbhak, suspension of breath),
- Swara yoga (controlling left and right nostril channels to encourage praan to flow into the Sushumna, or the central channel),
- Visualizations of chakras, colors, shapes and structures, direction of energy flow
- Asana (perfecting physical Hatha yoga postures)
- Kriya Yoga (specifically designed set of pranayama, mudras, bandhas, mantras, visualizations to activate and chanellize kundalini)
- Bhakti Yoga (surrendering to the kundalini/shakti energy as she moves you)
- Spiritual Anatomy (of chakras, nerve plexus, and their nadis (nerves), associated glands of the endocrine system, and Kundalini research.)
- Channelizing the Kundalini Energy….. In meditation you channelize the mind, and in physical hatha yoga, you twist and bend your body. However, in Laya yoga, you channelize the Kundalini. Channelizing the kundalini energy through Kriya techniques, controls the five elements, cleanses the mind and body, prevents fluctuations of the mind, subdues the prana, dissolves all Karmic patterns and conditions which is a preparation to awaken the kundalini for Ego Dissolution and merging into the transcendental reality called Samaadhi.
