Hridaya Yoga Retreat: Module 8

Bring Your Practice to a New Level

Are You Ready to Go Deeper?

Module 8 will bring your practice to a new level. After spending three modules exploring the oli mudras, you’ll go further with yoni mudra, which harnesses sexual and creative energy for spiritual evolution; mahamudra, which purifies the entire network of nadis, balances ida and pingala, and awakens Kundalini Shakti; and mahavedha mudra, which stirs Kundalini from Her home in muladhara chakra, encouraging Her to penetrate sushumna nadi by piercing the granthis.

You’ll also learn twelve new asanas, including mayurasana, “peacock pose,” which harmonizes the mind while developing strength in the arms and increasing digestive fire. You’ll explore prasarana, the dynamic, conscious liberation of energy at the level of any of the chakras. And, you’ll practice agnisara kriya, a vitalizing pranayama that arouses the body and mind, increases alertness, generates heat, and kindles the fire of spiritual aspiration.

These practical techniques are rounded out by a deeper theoretical exploration of the traditional teachings on Kundalini awakening, including the continued integration of Somananda’s teachings in Shaktavijnana. Altogether, Module 8 will inspire you to surrender more to your innermost Self.

When Kundalini Shakti sleeps in the muladhara, man is awake to the world; when She awakes to unite, and does unite, with the supreme static Consciousness which is Shiva, then consciousness is asleep to the world and is one with the Light of all things.
–Sir John Woodroffe
