Meaning and Practice of Yoga Asana’s

The word Yoga literally means “becoming One”.

Unfortunately this deep meaning seems forgotten in the western world and while in some yoga traditions exercises are called asana’s we can see today that the word asana has been replaced by the word yoga and with that the deeper meaning is lost. 

Originally yoga is a spiritual path, a spiritual way of living based on ethics. Asana’s were not part of Yoga in the beginning. Only later were they introduced as instruments within the Yoga tradition. 

In the Yoga of Nâm, which we call LivingNâm, we do not use asanas because we work with different, very powerful, instruments that stand alone. In that sense, the yoga asanas from the yoga classes are not part of LivingNâm. However, it can be helpful to use the body as a bridge or gateway to a meditative state. Especially if you realise that we have no experiences, but exist in experience, of which the body is a part.

Working towards a specific state of mind that we can call a meditative state is what counts and asanas can be a preparation for this. This is the meaning we want to give to the yoga asanas taught in Asharum Amonines and therefore these retreats are always a combination of asanas and meditation. Regarding this it can be supporting to be in silence during (part of) your stay.

Asha meditation and HarpMood

Part of the program are the two daily meditations of the Asharum, called Asha meditation and HarpMood.
In the Asha meditation, a regular rhythm is maintained for the first 15 minutes, combined with a rattle and voice, in preparation for the state of silence in the second 15 minutes.
In the evening the meditation consists of a HarpMood. The mystic Yoginâm plays the harp as a means of communication. It is not a harmonious musical entertainment, the sounds go beyond the mind and connect with your soul. If you adopt an attitude of openness, you can experience its benefits.

Quiet down in full attention

Yoga in combination with Asha meditation is a wonderful way to quiet down in full attention. Getting the yoga exercises (asanas) and meditation skills explained in a subtle and clear way lead to relaxation and experiencing beneficial space in body and mind.
If you need inner peace to return with more clarity, this yoga retreat is for you.

Daily rhythm in which you can choose to participate:

  • 08.00 Yoga class (75 minutes)
  • 09:15 Breakfast
  • 10:00 Asha meditation (30 minutes)
  • 14:00 Warm lunch
  • 17:00 Yoga class (75 minutes)
  • 19:00 HarpMood (30 minutes approximately)
  • 20:00 Supper

The first yoga class is always the next morning in order for you to arrive in a calm manner.
The programme ends on the last day with the Asha meditation at 10 am.
The costs of this retreat are € 85, – per day 
and includes full-board, meals, yoga and meditations.

This Yoga retreat will be guided by Yoga teacher Katelijn
