About The Event
Join Emma and Swami Nivedanananda for this immersion into Yoga, Sanskrit Vedic chanting and sacred ceremonies of India. Swami Nivedananda was born and raised in Kerala, South India. After his school education, Swamiji joined the Sivagiri Sree Narayana Math in Kerala very early on and completed a traditional training in Sanskrit, Vedanta, Tantric Pujas and rituals there for 7 years. This led him to take monastic vows at a very young age. Later, Swamiji completed the formal training of the Sivananda Yoga Centers with Yoga Teacher Training and Advanced Yoga Teacher Training.
Emma and Swamiji will lead us through a week of yoga and meditation practice, Sanskrit Vedic chanting and ancient Indian ceremonies….it will be a very special, purifying and uplifting retreat. It is fine if you are new to chanting and Indian ceremony as we will explain the meanings as best as we can of what we are doing and it’s benefits. Many of the ceremonies will be accompanied by beautiful Yantras that Swamiji will personally make by hand with coloured herbal rice powders….an example of such a Yantra can be seen from the images above.
This is a special opportunity to enjoy the company of a very sincere, simple and experienced high level teacher from India and also with Emma’s 30 years experience of yoga and ayurveda, and who also lived in ashrams for nearly 14 years and was a practising monk during that time.
