Hatha Yoga Cleansing Practices

How important are the shatkarmas in Hatha Yoga Sadhana

Yogic science gives as much importance to certain cleansing processes as it does to asana or pranayamas.  They are important from the point of view of physical and mental health, and these simple techniques are also highly valuable in healing internal disorders. Swami Satyananda 

Three cleansing practices (shatkarmas) give a simple, natural yet profound way to detoxify the whole digestive tract from mouth to anus, cleanse the respiratory system, stimulate the digestive system and bring clarity to one’s perception with the world around us. 

Learn the practices under expert guidance in the protected and natural environment of Rocklyn Yoga Ashram.  Once the practises have been experienced one is able to practice them on their own when needed. 

The inspiration and clarity felt when one can again breathe freely, taste, enjoy and digest food and perceive things clearly often gives deep emotional release and mental peace, leading to positive lifestyle changes.

Power of Awareness Silent Meditation Retreat - Swami Anandakumar

What is the one constant in all experience? It is the awareness itself, which is potentially there all the time. This is not the awareness of where you left the keys, or what did I come into the kitchen for, but an awareness of what is happening inside in our inner world as I take in, try to understand, and react to all the things that happen to me in my life. 

Unfortunately this does not happen automatically. Some application is needed. So in this context meditation in silence is akin to a training ground in an ideal environment, to awaken and realise the full potential of increasing self-awareness

Then it can become fully effective in all our waking hours. Awareness of this kind can be understood and practised systematically until its effectiveness becomes apparent and then it can begin to operate spontaneously in any circumstance, to great effect.

So we will also pay attention to the kind of lifestyle that is most effective in keeping positivity and inspiration high, which in turn goes on to support the quality of meditation practice, which in its turn increases our vision and wisdom in life, and so on in a true virtuous circle.

This is a shorter or introductory version of the longer courses run each year. So if you hesitate at the full 9 days you can try your hand at this shorter one.

Course Overview

A Yoga Mindful Lifestyle Retreat differs a little from the Living Consciously program in that extra time is allocated after lunch to deepen relaxation and reclaim inner balance and direction during your personal retreat. Course material and group meetings are consistent with the Living Consciously concept of awareness.

What was beneficial about the retreat?

  • Yoga Nidra, the daily topic to witness and reflect on and the balance of all the yogas including Karma Yoga were highlights in my life changing experience. 
  • Wonderful. It is one of the most peaceful settings I've had the privilege to be in. I am inspired.  
  • Location, affordability & ethos
  • Group sessions. Complete toolkit to help re-assess your mind/lifestyle

During A Yoga Mindful Lifestyle Retreats program participants will discover, experience and analyse the methods by which yogic principles and practices can be applied in their daily lives.
