Kriya Yoga, Meditation and Yogic Lifestyle
30 June-3 July with Swami Anandananda Saraswati (Italy)
Hungarian Yoga Association, Szolad
All yoga techniques aim to create happiness and balance on all levels in our lives. Each individual has their own idea of happiness as we all have distinct personalities and traits. Knowing this the yogis developed various practices so that every individual can use the most suitable for their aims. This is how the different branches of yoga were developed and each branch has many powerful techniques.
Yogic lifestyle in our modern era means living our normal day-to-day life, doing our duties, taking care of our families, but using these ancient techniques to enable us to do our duties in the best and most efficient way, all the while staying healthy, energetic and happy.
Progressing with sadhana-Taking the next step in yoga
with Dr. Swami Mudrarupa and Swami Omgyanam
The foundation of yoga is yoga practice, however only very few practioners are aware of its right concept. Doing yoga once or twice a week is not enough, and to keep changing the practices and doing them randomly will also not give full benefits. Most people do practices which they like and not those which they really need. Even regular practice without a systematic approach will not give the desired result. However, the optimal way of practicing has been clearly described in the original texts of yoga.
