All of us have potential beyond our wildest dreams, but much of this remains untapped, we exist at a certain level of awareness, perhaps sensing that something is missing, but not knowing quite what. The ancient yogis understood this and developed the methodology of kriya to help us to access this potential and to create extraordinary lives. These kriyas offer a powerful way to cut through the distractions of modern life and to deliver us to greater levels of awareness, joy and peace.

The term Kriya comes from the root of the Sanskrit word literally meaning ‘to do.’ Kriya often refers to a completed action that achieves a specific result and involves work with the body, energy, and mind simultaneously. To act with Kriya, the action is aligned with the higher self.

The practice of kriya is very practical. It is a system designed to bring results, not just talk about them. It is a methodology used to create lasting transformation: through provoking somatic experience, releasing old attachments, strengthening the nervous system, shifting mental patterns and expanding awareness. Learn how to bring these potent energetic elements into your practice and class. 

The purpose of kriya yoga is to transform your whole life into a continuous expression of joy, bliss and wisdom.

Description

This 60-hour module offers an in depth look at the practice of KRIYA from a variety of yogic traditions, including an understanding of how and why these practices work, the specific effects they have, and how best to implement them. Participants will explore the experiences delivered through various kriyas from both the perspective of student and teacher. We investigate the subtlety of teaching and the ability of the teacher to act from their greater sense of Self; including the issues that come up around our own shadow and the student-teacher relationship. We consider the role of the teacher as a ‘transformational experience catalyst with developed sensitivity and presence.’ We investigate the deeper dimensions of being a teacher: as torchbearers of light to the rest of world.

This module is a powerful opportunity to move beyond your current patterns to emerge radiant and present to your uniqueness as an individual and teacher. Please note that this module is open to all interested students, whether you are a teacher or not.
