Transformative Kriya Yoga Healing/Meditation Retreat

August 14th, 15th, & 16th 2015
Friday 7pm to Sunday 2pm

RETREAT: withdraw to a quiet or secluded place.

Join us for a 3 day stay at the lovely landscapes of the Eastern Townships at Babaji's Kriya Yoga Ashram in Quebec, Canada just 1 hour and 30 minutes from Montreal. Located on 80 acres, atop a mountain, with panoramic views of neighboring mountains & pristine forest land. It has a private lake, access to hundreds of acres of forest trails, & the peace of isolation.

The Retreat will be lead by Yogi Pgian (Peter Giannaris founder & owner of Kali Yuga Yoga center in Chomedy, Laval, Quebec). Yogi Pgian has been inspired by the Eastern Arts, Philosophy & Psychology ever since the young age of 8. From the Ages of 8- 20 Yogi Pgian practiced & studied Karate, Kung- Fu, Chi Kung & Tai Chi very ardently. At the age of 17-32 he was introduced into Bodybuilding & devotedly trained (all natural) to further understand the effects on the physical & mental. By the time he entered the Ages of 27 to his present age of 44 Yoga became a path he undoubtedly & intuitively knew was the way back home to the Light of Truth & Liberation from the societal conditionings, programs, beliefs & limitations of the ever indwelling naturalness of Spirit.

Yogi Pgian received his TTC (Teachers Training Certification) in Kriya Hatha Yoga in 2003 and intuitively was prompted by the Divine to study Yogic

Scriptures such as Bhagavad Gita, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Brahma Sutras & Various Upanishads. He has also practiced & studied Kundalini Yoga under the guidance of a teacher from India & was initiated into Babaji’s Kriya Yoga in 2011 & 2012. Yogi Pgian highly honors the Spirit (breath) & regards it as “The True Master to our Self Mastery”, realizing the importance of educating the masses in proper relaxation & proper breathing methods. For it is in the Spirit that humanity can come to unite & return to the naturalness of “Being”, respectfully living harmoniously with one another, all of life & our fullest potential.

This retreats objective is to return one from the everyday set patterns of stimulus which draws one outwardly & away from the experience of the ever blissful, peaceful, healthy, calm nature of the pristine SELF WITHIN.

With life today more demanding then ever. Stress, anxiety, depression, health conditions and a sense of confusion are some of the issues faced by humanity. Leaving one feeling distant or disconnected from their true nature. To retreat is to simply step away from the context of our daily habitual life patterns and take a clearer look on the causes to the effects being experienced with greater understanding and knowing. Similarly to reading a book. One cannot read the content written when to close to our eyes. All that is seen is a blur, which may seem natural when all we've known is a blur experience on a daily basis. Only when we step away from the book can any clarity shine forth to make sense of the literature or context of our life. Offering any possibility for understanding and the opportunity to change what limits our fullest potential and greatness.
