Solar Energy Makar Sankranti Celebrations Online and at Anand Prakash Yoga Ashram

As we welcome in 2023 which is full of things that have not yet been realised, join us to celebrate ‘Makar Sankranthi’. The Akhanda Yoga Team will guide you through a Solar Energy Celebration focused on Abundance, Willpower & Inner Transformation.

In Vedic terms, ‘Makar Sankranthi’ marks the beginning of the auspicious 6-month period of ‘Uttarayana’ where the sun begins to make its northward journey, inviting in longer days and shorter nights. This is the time when the harvest of our previous hard work begins.

Traditionally an important festival for farmers and householders seeking blessings for a good harvest season ahead, this is the perfect time for activating the manipura chakra and manifesting your deepest desires.

Why would I attend this Solar Energy Celebration?

– To consciously invite abundance prosperity into your life.
– To welcome new beginnings and opportunities.
– To raise pranic energy at an astrologically powerful time.
– Experience wonderful ancient techniques to ignite the fire of Self transformation.
– To activate the digestive fire for improved physical, mental, improved immune system and spiritual digestion.
– A potent time for setting and manifesting your intentions for the year ahead.

"Prana–the more you have the lighter you feel." -Yogrishi Vishvketu
