Kriya Yoga Greece

with Swami Shankarananda Giri

11day Kriya Yoga silent meditation retreat  
with Basu at Lefkada 
From 2nd to 12th of May 2019

The course contains of a structured practice of Kriya Yoga and Mindfulness meditation combined with Kriya Hatha Yoga, Nidra Yoga, Bhajan and Healthy food.

The purpose of Kriya Yoga is to develop inner silence so speaking little for 10 days will support this development a lot. We will keep silence inside the meditation centre after day 1. But if you wish you are free to have small conversations when you go for a walk outside the centre.

In this retreat the initial level of Kriya Yoga practice will be given. If this practice is successful and the wish is there it will be possible on a later stage to take an initiation in the full practise. More Information soon

Kriya Yoga belongs to the inner level of yoga ‘meditation’ and was first described by Patanjali in his "Yoga Sutras" 400 BC. The practice is based on the breath, the attention and the 7 chakras.

Through the practice of Kriya Yoga the human evolution is enhanced and Samadhi can be attained. The secret in Kriya Yoga is the subtle connection between the breath and consciousness. 

Kriya Yoga was made famous in the west by Paramahansa Yogananda. He wrote the book "Autobiography of a Yogi" which became a 'must read' for all who are interested in yoga.

Basu began his yoga sadhana in 1997 and in 2002 he was initiated in Kriya Yoga by Swami Shankarananda Giri. He is an experienced teacher and has been  giving courses and retreats in yoga and meditation in India, Thailand, Greece and Austria since 2000. 

In 2008 Swami Shankarananda Giri gave him the allowance to introduce and guide others into Kriya Yoga and in 2016 he became a Kriya Acharya and can give initiation into Kriya Yoga.
