Kundalini Kriya & Meditation Course


Our Kundalini Kriya & Meditation Course, held at the Vedic Yoga Retreat Centre in Rishikesh, India, introduces participants to Kundalini Yoga. 

This practice is based on the teachings of Tantra, which come from the wisdom of the Himalayan tradition, and is believed to be the direct path to developing your inner awareness.  It focuses on connecting you with your inner divine energy, known as shakti, through the practices of Kundalini kriya. These practices aim to awaken your awareness to the Source of life, which already exists within you. 

In Module 1, participants learn foundational practices based on seven sets of kriyas, and as these practices deepen over time, students find that they promote stress relief and detoxification of the body.

The key to awakening Kundalini lies in integrating yoga and kriya practices into daily life and being aware of one’s inner consciousness.

It’s important to understand that success comes only from consistent practice which focuses on the process rather than the outcome. This involves ongoing awareness of life’s realities and learning the art of adjusting from moment to moment.


Anyone who is seeking something deeper in their life is eligible to join this course.  All that is required is an open heart and open mind so that you can receive the teachings from the ancient Himalayan wisdom. 


Each module is a 7-day course that builds on the previous module.  Each session within each module involves both theory and practice.
