Kriya-Yoga Retreat – the Great Freedom Tantra

Kriya Yoga.. dive deep into freedom

Learn the Kriya Yoga – the Great Freedom Tantra

This profound exploration on the bliss of Kriya Yoga – the Great Freedom Tantra is the very roots of Kundalini.

Kriya Yoga works with the systematic progression from physical body into the electro-magnetic body, the energy body, with breathwork, meditation and physical practice.

Chakra work progresses to us working with mantras known as the syllables of light.

These mantras come from the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra and the Mahanirvana Tantra.

I was initiated into these practices in India and Asia and have been practising and developing them in various forms for almost twenty years.

This retreat will give you a deeper insight into authentic Tantra.

We will be working with Yantra, Mantra and Nyasa the key practices of Yoga-Tantra.

Dive deep

What does this mean? It means you get to focus on growing your practice using all my skills and expertise so you get the very best out of your practice. It means we get up early and begin with meditation and use our best energy to find the deep source of awareness within. It means we will have three to four sessions of yoga each day. It means on our day off you get to go into a beautiful location in nature and rewild, recreate and regenerate.

We will practice

  • meditation
  • pranayama
  • kriya yoga
  • work with the force of kundalini
  • understand the philosophy of love and wisdom
  • work in delight with vibration, voice and chant
  • explore healing in your body and mind as needed

What Chris doesn't know about yoga, quite frankly isn't worth knowing. I have learned so much from Chris over the past couple of years, it has been life changing. I had no idea of the depth and beauty yoga has to offer. If you're up for diving deeper then study, learn, practice with Chris - it's a journey worth exploring...
Josie Harrington
I got a real understanding of what yoga really is! 
Getting to immerse in practice for 8 days, Chris really got to us to inquire, feel and go deep into the physical, emotional and energetic body. We laughed, cried, danced, swam, ate great food, chanted and so much wisdom was shared. Transformational!
