Hridaya Hermitage invites you to experience a new and exciting season of our Vashi Yoga Teaching Series!
In the tradition of accomplished Yogic masters, Bhagavan Vashi Baba, founder and lineage holder of Vashi Yoga, will be advancing his practice into a retreat style Sadhana. Concentrating his time, attention, and lifestyle into absolute absorption of the experience and emanation of Vashi Yoga. However, he will continue to offer specialized oral instruction and inspiration to his initiated disciples and serious spiritual aspirants.
Bhagavan has transferred the responsibility of offering the introductory teachings and philosophy of Vashi Yoga at Hridaya Hermitage to his advanced disciples. Teachings will emphasize the outer forms of physical practice and essential insight into the basis of advanced inner practice. Beginning this month at our Savatri Festival the disciples of Hridaya Hermitage will be introducing a new festival program that includes two intimate teachings on the physical and meditative process of Vashi Yoga.
Morning Sat Sang: The Outer Practice
This teaching introduces the physical form and sequence of Vashi Yoga. We will be demonstrating and instructing the proper form of Yogic breathing combined with specialized postures to enhance the physical, mental, and energetic experience of life.
Sattvic Vegan Meal
Enjoy a wonderful vegan lunch and dinner prepared with the blessing ofhealing intention and meditation by Hridaya Yogis in our sacred kitchen.
Afternoon Sat Sang: The Inner Practice w/ Shiva Lila Kirtan
Begins with an opening kirtan with Shiva Lila, Hridaya Hermitages very own, playing traditional devotional music from India, including Sanskrit chanting and heart pounding percussions. The Yogis of Hridaya will then offer a discourse on the philosophy of the inner meditation of Vashi Yoga, followed by a questions and answer period.
Evening Yagna: Sacred Fire Offering
Each festival’s theme is based on different astrological phenomena and yogic sacred dates that can enhance onesintention and motivation of spiritual practice. To capitalize on these phenomena we conclude each festival with a Yagna, a Yogic ritual of offering mantras and oblations to a sacred fire, for the purpose of emanating a specific intention of transformation that is accentuated astrologically .
