Few of the Sessions

The Art and Science of Kriya Yoga

11:00 AM – Nayaswami Devarshi

Kriya Yoga is a timeless meditation technique referenced by Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras and Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita.

Yogic Diet: Prana and Health

12.20 AM – Nayaswami Shankara

“Once you learn to eat right foods, think right thoughts, and be filled with wisdom and joy, your body and mind
will be spiritualized and experienced as dynamos of magnetic energy. Your body and mind, purified by this
energy, will take on the beauty of the Spirit and be a spiritual magnet, charged with the life of God, blessing
all those it touches.” – Paramhansa Yogananda, How to Achieve Glowing Health and Vitality

Chakras: Doorways to higher consciousness

12: 20 PM – Amit & Anandita

Chakras are energy centers within us that hold the key to enhanced mental and emotional well-being. Mastering the energies of the chakras is one of the most valuable life skills. Your external life—who you are and what happens to you—is directly influenced by the energy patterns in your chakras. The more we attune to our chakras through meditation and daily practice, the more they support and collaborate with us. Discover how to connect with the subtle energies within you.
