We are so thrilled to provide the space for Yogi Ashokananda, an honored guest from United Kingdom, to share his Yogic wisdom and teachings with the Rising Lotus Community. 

The workshops will focus on practices, techniques and experiential learning to lead you towards greater self-awareness and healing. You will expand your sense of who and what you are with the teachings of Yogi Ashokananda by applying the yoga & meditation disciplines he has developed.

Yogi sees the journey of yoga and meditation as one which allows you to see all of yourself; his philosophy of “without engaging the vehicle, you cannot make any journey” applies to the engagement of the physical, emotional, mental and psychological aspects of self through his practices of yoga and meditation. The spirit or soul, he says, does not need healing as it is already whole and complete; it is the consciousness, the awareness around the soul and the mind which yoga and meditation can help to clear giving you access to the spirit or soul and self-healing. The aim of the practices is to bring you to the centre of yourself so that you can transform you and your life from this authentic place within you.

 

Join us Saturday, August 27th!

➤ Body Awakening Himalayan Hatha Yoga 
12:00pm – 2:00pm

During the workshop you will understand precise alignment and its effect within the asanas to stimulate correct engagement of the muscles and the importance of breath attention to open the body for awakening.
Awakened body through Himalayan Hatha Yoga practices brings ease into your day-to-day life, allowing the body to channel the energy and to embrace the emotions to live mindfully in everyday activities. An awakened body is anchored and balanced physically, mentally & emotionally.
The workshop is suitable for all levels, focussing on joint & ligament health, alignment strengthening the muscular system through the balanced sequences of Himalayan Hatha Yoga Series 1 & 4.
Himalayan Hatha Yoga is a strong, yet supportive form of yoga, working through the entire body, cleansing and revitalizing through a combination of physical & subtle body practices and special sequencing, each sequence with its own emphasis.
The focus of Himalayan Hatha Yoga is on inner body strength, breath, accuracy and alignment of the asanas, with consistent regard for a safe, healthy and balanced practice. To achieve this requires a strong connection with the breath and the body, which evolves over time through discipline and practice.
The philosophy is embedded in the practice itself, and the spiritual benefits occur through the physicality of it.

 

➤ Breath Healing Prana Kriya Yoga
3:00pm – 4:30pm

This workshop will allow you to experience the essence and authenticity of true Kriya Yoga with Yogi Ashokananda’s signature style of Prana Kriya Yoga.
Regardless of your physical strength and ability, Yogi will expertly guide you so that you can experience the layer of your highest consciousness by focusing on the fundamental principles of the practice. In this energetic
and empowering workshop, we will go into fascinating detail and experience of Prana Kriya Yoga, the physical and subtle body alignment, stimulating the energy with the breath to channel throughout the body.
The workshop is suitable for all levels, focussing on gentle and subtle Kriyas in combination with the breath, primordial sounds and mudras, to create a healing effect on the physical and subtle body.
Prana Kriya Yoga harmonises and unites the flow of the physical movement in our bodies (kriya) with its energetic power helping you become aware of your creative potential.
This form of yoga is one of the most effective means by which to achieve your goals and aspirations, material, emotional and spiritual, and bring your actions in line with your mental and emotional state. Prana Kriya Yoga has also long been highly regarded among many great masters and yogis to hold the key to slowing down the aging process. It achieves this by recharging the blood with oxygen and decarbonizing it, thus rejuvenating the brain and spinal centre and preventing the decay of tissues in the body. It awakens the hidden energy (kundalini) within you allowing you to transform and free yourself from limiting beliefs and old behavioral patterns that hold you back.

 

➤ Pranayama & Chakra Meditation 
4:45pm – 6:00pm

Yogi will guide you through very specific pranayama techniques, using the breath and sounds to stimulate and awaken the energy in the chakras releasing any blocked energy to create energetic alignment.
Leading into chakra meditation to raise and align the vibration of the chakras.
Chakra meditation uses mantra and breath to stimulate and soothe the energy of the chakras and prepare the nervous system for kundalini to rise. The flow of energy through each chakra is increased to affect the elements within different parts of the body relating to the properties of each chakra. The ultimate effect brings many physical and psychological benefits which can only be felt by experiencing this wonderful process.
 
The result is felt on every level – on a physical level, this meditation is one of the best antidotes for depression, stress and insomnia. It is good for balancing blood pressure, for heart problems and positively affects the nervous system. The cardiovascular practice also takes you to a state of meditation and tranquillity. On an emotional and spiritual level, you will experience renewal and transformation.
