Learn how imbalances in our breath, sleep, energy body (nadis, pranas, and chakras) and digestive fire can affect our emotional and mental health, immunity, and many other aspects of our existence, and how to use the power of breath to release physical and mental toxicity that can build up during periods of stress.

Rebuilding Relationships with Breath, Sound & Inner Reprogramming

For many of us the natural ways we would support ourselves through uncertain times has had to be shifted and rewritten. This can lead us to feeling unsure of ourselves and disconnected from our sense of belonging and Soul purpose. These are important ingredients for experiencing inner peace and healthy, vibrant relationships. Ancient yoga techniques such as pranayama, kundalini kriyas, mantras, and Vedic rituals, can help to release suppressed emotions, the body’s held memories of trauma, and support mental health as well as spiritual expansion.

During the retreat you will learn how imbalances in our breath, sleep, energy body (nadis, pranas, and chakras) and digestive fire can affect our emotional and mental health, immunity, and many other aspects of our existence, and how to use the power of breath to release physical and mental toxicity that can build up during periods of stress.

You will also explore several other special tools of yoga, including Yoga Nidra, Raja Yoga and Vedic rituals which have been used by yogic practitioners to release suppressed emotions and reignite your Soul purpose.

Throughout the weekend Vishva-ji will guide you through the five koshas, or layers of being: physical, energetic, mental/emotional, intuitive, and bliss. Culminating in two ancient elemental healing rituals (water and fire) for your maternal and paternal lines.

Note: Please bring symbolic items or photographs of your family or special friends and/or items that relate to what you are bringing forward for healing.

Join us at the scenic Sanctum Retreat for a rejuvenating, all-inclusive retreat amongst a community of other yoga enthusiasts. The Sanctum Retreat offers delicious vegetarian meals, comfortable accommodation and a vaulted hall for yoga during the retreat.

What are the people saying?

Akhanda institute is a beautiful place to learn an authentic Yoga. The Yoga Master, Yogrishi and his team are just amazing. Very knowledgeable and always present for any of their students. I now feel part of a wonderful yoga family. Thank you very much for everything. I’m really grateful and feel privileged for all the knowledge you passed on to me.`

Jasmine Connery; YTT Student

My deepest gratitude to the whole Akhanda Yoga family! These trainings have carried me through my deepest transformations and introduced my to so much knowledge and experiences that are hard to put into words. I cannot recommend any of the trainings here enough and I will continue spreading the word. Thank you and I am looking forward to future trainings with Akhanda!

Daniela Schmitt; YTT Student

To all of the organizers of this event a big and resounding CONGRATULATIONS and well done. If anyone had ever told me that through ZOOM I could be enraptured by kirtan sitting in my yoga room I would frankly have found that difficult to contemplate. However that Zoom kirtan was a highlight of my Zoom experiences. I had the energy of everyone’s’ participation in my yoga room.

Thanks for this reminder of the pure joy of kirtan and COMMUNITY. How fortunate we are to have the AY Family.

A big thank you to you Vishva-ji for holding us together and being a beacon of light to many.

Thank you to all the Akhanda Team for a simply wonderful zoom session on New Year’s Eve.  My husband and I enjoyed it so so much!  All the talented people who shared Kirtan with us all and all the interesting offerings which were so inspiring.  So much light and joy! I have watched it twice again since then.  I was particularly fascinated by the Jyotish session with Vish Chatterji – all very inspiring.
