Ajapa Japa is an ancient meditation practice dating back from the Upanishads combining meditation and pranayama using the natural mantra of the breath. The effortless repetition of mantra along with the breath is profound in its simplicity and once mastered can bring awakening and deepening of self-awareness, affecting both the conscious and subconscious mind, bringing us back to the present moment and the essence of Self.

By using the natural breath as the anchor, Ajapa Japa is accessible to all, with and without previous yoga experience. Throughout this course the more subtle aspects of the practice will be introduced enabling everyone to bring this far-reaching meditation into their daily lives in accessible and effective ways.
During this weekend online retreat we will explore and develop the various components that make up the overall practice of Ajapa Japa. The sessions will include asana, pranayama, meditation, chakras, yoga nidra and satsang – questions and answers.
The practices learned can then be continued at home to become a wonderful addition to any sadhana practice thereafter. The retreat will include 2 x 1.5 hour sessions and 6 x 1 hour sessions of live online teaching, feedback and sharing via zoom on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 July. The zoom sessions will be at 7.30-9am, 10-11am, 3.30-4.30pm and 5-6pm on both days.
