About the Course

Chakra meditation retreat

Exclusive week in which a Guru from India will come to help you activate the flow of energy in your body. Experience chakra meditation with simple breathing techniques, hand gestures and intentions.
You will learn about and practice all the different parts of Hatha Yoga.
Balance your posture, your breath and your mind and then experience how to activate the power to control for example your body temperature, your physical strength, your immunity, your resistance against outside influences and healing your self.

The Yoga system brings us a lot of different practices to work on ourselves. Since 2019, Centre Lothlorien teaches the ‘Yoga Way of Life’, in which you learn to gradually integrate these practices in your life. The aim is to bring more brightness, lightness, health and happiness in to your life.
With a few adjustments in your lifestyle and mindset, with regular practice of Asana and Pranayama and by observing your mindset through Yoga philosophy, you can already feel the benefits of Yoga. This week however, Guru Ashish L. Vyas will come from India to help you discover the deeper layers of Yoga with Chakra Meditation.

The topics Mudra, Chakra, Prana and Meditation have become trends and are taught by many. What is not always understood, is that you are working with powers, that should not be messed with. Without the proper preparation or guidence, these practices will have no result, or might even do damage. This should only be done by an experienced Guru who has been initiated in these practices.

How does it work?
Your body is nothing else but a complex infrastructure of channels. We know about the gross channels which are responsible for the transportation of fluids, oxygen, nutrients and removal of waste. In Yoga and Ayurveda you learn about subtle channels, called Nadi’s. These are energy channels, present everywhere in your body, which are either blocked or open. In your body there are places where some of the main Nadi’s cross eachother. These energycenters are called Chakra’s.
Your lifestyle, your metabolism, your muscle growth, your body posture, your thoughtpatterns, all these effect your gross and your subtle channels. Channels can close because of a disbalance, or from a homeostatic reation to protect you from harm. For this reason the forcable activation of a Chakra or opening of a Nadi is not wise. That is why all the Hatha Yoga traditions include many practices, to first remove the disturbance or unbalance, before working with this energy.

Lifestyle
Live in a natural daily rhytm. Wake up early, go to bed early. Eat your meals with intervals. Drink a lot of water. Do physical activity every day. Go outside every day. Do work that suits your personality. Have social interactions, but do not get consumed by temptations.

Sattvik Food
Do not overeat. Eat easily digestible food. Eat fresh, local and seasonal, home prepared meals. Eat your dinner early and do not eat after dinner.

Thoughts
Encourage positive thoughts. Do not let your mind get disturbed by outside influences. Do not blame others. Look for the learning effects of a situation. Love yourself.

Relaxation
Do relaxing (re)creative activities such as Meditation, walks in nature, making or listening to music, arts, painting, gardening, etc.

Kriya
Clean the openings of your gross channels. There are nine. Kriya’s are specific techniques to remove accumelated waste and to keep your body and the senses functioning properly.

Asana
Asana helps in keeping a flexible body with a straight posture, by building lean muscles. All physical blockages can be removed.

Pranayama
Prana is the life energy, which is influenced by the breath. While the previous subjects help in freeing the channels, Pranayama also activates the flow of energy.

Mudra
Mudra activates the Nadi’s by touch. With specific hand gestures and the right intentions, you can activate energy and steer it, for specific purposes.

Meditation
Once you are clean, clear and comfortable, you can shut out all outside and inside interferences and find your true self. You can reach your ultimate potential.

The week is organized by Pinky More and Richard Slager. Especially for this week they have asked Guru Ashish L. Vyas to come from India.

Aashish L. Vyas is an Occultist, specialising in Numerology, Vastu Shastra, the 7 Chakras and Astrology. He has not been active outside India before, but in August he is coming specially to Centre Lothlorien to share his experiences with us.

“Through yoga, meditation, pranayama and tantra sadhana, I found a deep attunement to the supreme power. In the midst of these spiritual pursuits, I discovered simplified techniques that we can incorporate into our busy lives and add depth and meaning to our daily routines.
Each experience contributed to my growing understanding of and connection to spirituality, paving the way for a transformative and enriching journey.”
