Description

"Untying the cord of breath, which binds the soul to the body,
Kriya serves to prolong life and enlarge the consciousness to infinity.
The yoga method overcomes the tug of war between the mind and the matter-bound senses,
and frees the devotee to re-inherit his eternal kingdom."

—Paramhansa Yogananda

Kriya is a specific meditation technique which accelerates human evolution and which leads to God-realization. This weekend course is an introduction to the philosophy and science of Kriya Yoga and teaches specific practices that help you to focus your mind in meditation and control your energy through pranayama.

Subjects include:
• What is Kriya Yoga, its benefits and how it can help accelerate our spiritual growth;
• What is karma, how it is created, and how Kriya can help overcome it;
• The path, the practices and life style of a Kriya yogi;
• The importance and the meaning of discipleship;
• The steps to preparing for initiation into Kriya.

Your teacher:
Tyagi Yogindra (Claudio Gregorelli) began practicing yoga at a very young age and in the early 80's taught therapeutic yoga in Milan. He was particularly attracted by the books of Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda, and in 1985 he moved from Brescia to Lake Como, where the Ananda Europa community was located at the time.

After training as an Ananda Yoga teacher at Ananda Village in California, from 1997 until 2004 he taught yoga and the practices and basic principles of Kriya Yoga, both in the programs at Ananda and in courses and seminars in various Italian cities. He was invited by the University La Sapienza of Rome to teach a two-years course sponsored by a well-known pharmaceutical company, studying the effects of yoga on patients suffering from multiple sclerosis.

From 2005 to 2010, with his wife Gitanjali, he lived mainly in India at the newly founded Ananda community in Gurgaon, spreading the ideals of community life and the teachings of Kriya Yoga through seminars and satsangs in several urban centers of India.

Upon returning to Ananda Assisi, in recent years he has been mainly involved in organizing guest programs and coordinating Ananda's teaching staff.

When we learn to serve with the right attitude, this is a spiritual practice and is called Karma Yoga. The daily practice of Karma Yoga is a joyful and practical spiritual discipline that will benefit every aspect of your life.
