The Himalayan Awakening

A 20 day program in the midst of  Winter at the Montreal Ashram, when the prana in Nature is super-pure and abundant. Learning and doing spiritual practices in such prana-rich environment can freeze your mind in stillness and alertness.  The winter at the Montreal ashram is beautiful but can also be rough. One’s willingness to endure some roughness is like doing tapas (austerities), and reflects one’s sincerity to know oneSelf.  These are some of the reasons why many seekers choose to go to Himalaya for some time. I bring the Himalayan experience to you at the Montreal ashram.

The Himalayan Awakening  course is an opportunity for you to immerse yourself deeply in all aspects of yoga practices. You will experience the power, beauty, and depth of practices when done properly and with honour for longer periods. 
During this course, we will flow with the rhythm of the moment. We won’t end a meditation just because it is the scheduled meal time, or you may be awakened at 2:00 AM for a yoga session, and still expected to be present for the scheduled morning sadhana. 

 During the first 10 days of the course, the focus will be on making the body and mind healthier and stronger with the intense practices of Hatha Yoga such as asanas, pranayamas, bandhas, yogic kriyas etc. and, of course, meditations and sharing of knowledge will also be important parts of the daily routine.

During the next 10 days the focus will shift to meditations, silence, and knowledge; along with continuation of some hatha yoga practices. 

 If you are interested in this course, I would like to know a little about you before you register for the course, especially if  we have not met yet. Please send me an email at krishanji@artofliving.org  <3 <3

Recently I spent a week in Argentina with incredibly beautiful and sincere yogis from different countries. Our days and nights were immersed in yoga. Their devotion for yoga and Guru was so supreme that that’s all they wanted to talk about. They didn’t care about eating or sleeping. Yoga was their priority. They truly touched my heart. The course was coordinated by Lucas Schnoller, a dedicated yogi whom I have watched grow and blossom over the years. He is in white, sitting behind me in the 1st picture. His whole team of organizers was amazing. They spoiled me with their loving care. <3 <3
