Yoga Sadhana


Chakras are vortexes that receive, absorb and distribute energy within our life. An awareness of our chakra-system can reveal our strengths, weaknesses, help us understand why we feel a certain way and what aspects of our life consume most of our energy.

During the Anand Yatra, we will journey through these chakras in an endeavour to reach the highest level of human consciousness. With guided yoga practices and meditative sessions, you will be able to unblock your energy flow and take a step further on the ladder of consciousness.

Pre-Yaatra orientation

To awaken the chakras, we will begin with some simple yoga exercises a month prior to the yaatra. These orientation practices will be conducted at a1000yoga studios and also through our personalized video blogs.

The Yaatra Living

At each stage of the yaatra, we will delve into the chakras individually and learn how
to anchor, align and connect to the prana or the life-force through our body.

The principle elements we will be using are:

1. The boundless energy of Kailash and Manasarovar
2. The Panchamahabhutas
3. Hata yoga practices
4. Mantra chants
5. The guidance of an experienced mentor

Here’s a peep into the yogic experience throughout the journey:

Day 1: Arrival at Kathmandu

Begin your yaatra with some purifying practices like Neti, Suryanamaskara and Nadishodhana. This will help clarify the mind and lighten the body.

Day 2: Kathmandu sightseeing & fly to Nepalgunj

Begin your morning in the ancient city of Kathmandu with some pranayama; stretch
your body while soaking in its sights and smells. Here we?ll practice the big 5 postures, Nadishodhana, Bramari and Ujjayi.

Day 3: Fly Simikot- Hilsa & Drive to Purang

This day involves quite a bit of travelling. Through short meditations and pranayama,
we’ll focus on the Mooldhara(root), Swadisthana(sacral) and Manipura(solar plexus) chakras to help purify the sensitive senses.

Day 4: Rest at Purang

Feast your eyes on the enchanting beauty of Tibet while building a greater awareness
of your body. Once again, we’ll concentrate on the root, sacral and solar plexusmchakaras by practicing the big 5 postures, Neti, Suryanamaskara,Nadishodhana,mBramari and Ujjayi.

Day 5: Drive to Mansarovar

The breathtaking view of Mansarovar surrounded by snow-capped mountains serves as the perfect place to meditate. Embrace the tranquillity of this mystical lake while focusing on the Anahata (heart) chakra with practices such as Kumbhaka and Aum chanting.

Day 6: Drive nearby Yam Dwar &1 st Day of Parikrama to Diraphuk.

As we begin the Parikrama, we move to working on the Vishuddhi (throat) chakra.
Feel the renewed energy as you meditate before the mighty Kailash. Here, we?ll focus on body-breath union and self-expression through chakra purifying mantras.

Day 7: 2 nd Day of Parikrama to Zuthulphuk

As the yaatra progresses, so does the ascend of the chakras. Seated before the epitome
of purity, we will focus on the Ajna (third eye) chakra. Awaken your reflective mind and see the bigger picture with the practice of Chidakasha (mental space) awareness.

Day 8: 3 rd day of Parikrama & Drive to Purang or Hilsa

Experience the boundless energy of this place by focusing on the third eye chakra.
Concentrate on your inner space ? the space of your inner consciousness. Allow the essence of Kailash to take root in you as the trek comes to a close.

Day 9: Fly Hilsa – Simikot – Kathmandu

The final leg of the journey is a time to absorb and reflect on the experiences.

Day 10: Depart Kathmandu

The last day of the yaatra will be spent in de-orientation and sharing of experiences.

Make Yoga part of Life

The principles laid out in Patanjali’s yoga sutras dating back to 500 B.C. are still very relevant today, even in our modern information world. Yoga has evolved a lot from the days of Patanjali; it has taken different forms to meet the varying needs of practitioners all along its journey. Yoga continues to accept all changes, like the ocean accepts the river, absorbs, assimilates and grows. (A distinctive feature of sanaatan dharma of India)
