Shankhaprakshalana
with Satyananda Yoga Teachers

This is a wonderful practice with many benefits. It is especially good for alleviating many digestive problems and purifies both the physical and energy body. It involves drinking many rounds of warm, saline water and practising a series of postures to move the water through the digestive system. It is followed by kunjal (regurgitation of water) and neti (nasal cleansing).

After doing the full practice (poorna) you must follow a strict diet for one month. A shorter practice (laghoo) is also an option where there are no dietary restrictions.

Please download and read all the attached information BEFORE applying. To apply download and complete the application form and return it to the yoga centre with full payment. Cost £35.

Please note advance booking and full payment is essential; this practice is not held at the London Centre.

Yantra drawing and painting
with Brahmananda

Yantras are abstract representations of various energies and tools for meditation. The drawing and painting of yantra is a meditation practice in itself, naturally creating an effortless state of concentration and introversion, which when combined with mantra is a deep and reflective sadhana practice.

This day falls in the middle of Navaratri, the nine nights of the goddess, hence we will focus on durga yantra, an aspect of the goddess energy. Mantra, meditation and the geometric drawing of the yantra will be combined, with time to paint and create a completed yantra by the end of the day. Some experience would be useful but not essential.
