(A process to experience the vibrant self)
Gatyatmak yoga offers a challenge to intermediate and advanced levels of Yoga practitioners. The traditional Hatha yogic postures chosen in the session are dynamic in nature. The entire session revolves around two traditional dynamic sequences of postures known as Surya Namaskara (Sun Salutation) and Chandra Namaskara (Moon salutation). These two highly effective practices focus primarily on rhythm, dynamism and vitality of the body-mind system.
(A process of unleashing psychic energy)
The very word Kriya means activity or movement, and in this context activity or movement of awareness or consciousness. Kriya yoga in relation to the Hatha yogic techniques such as asana (posture), Pranayama (breath-control), Mudras (yogic gestures), Bandhas (yogic energy locks) and various other yogic Shatkriyas (cleansing practices), unleashes and channelises the physical and more subtle psychic energies to attain the state of optimum health and spiritual awakening.
A stressful life-style has a profound effect on our breathing. In Pranayama the attention is on the breath. Pranayama literally means expansion of prana (Vitality). Various techniques of Pranayama rectify the faulty patterns of breathing. It removes the blockages from the subtle energy channels and enhances the level of vitality and relaxation.
This is an advanced form of Pranayama which is done with the energy locks to vitalize the system of Body and Mind. Pranayama with Bandha becomes very intense practice. It activates and regulates the ‘life force’ or prana and helps one to attain and experience higher state of vibratory energy.
