Twice a month, typically on Sundays unless otherwise noted due to astrological significance, we offer Festivals for
the public to come and receive teachings or Upadesh by our practicing Gurus Sri Bhagavan VaShi Baba and Sri Mirabai VaShi Devi. This is a powerful and amazing opportunity to meet two individuals who have dedicated their lives to practice. They both formally practice yoga for over 8 hours a day and it is difficult to receive their darshan however as part of their service to the world they offer these teachings to all.
At Hridaya Hermitage we are practicing a form of Vatatapika Kaya Kalpa descending from the oldest, unbroken lineage of Yoga. Vashi Vatatapika, “ the controlled path of air and light”, focuses primarily on adopting the systems of this rare lineage of authentic Yogic lifestyle to achieve perfect health through mastering Yogic techniques of vitality and rejuvenation. Traditionally prescribed for royalty, public servants, and householders this method emphasizes the need of invoking a gradual process of physical purification, harmonization, and rejuvenation over a longer period of time, coupled with a gradual increase in intensity. The practices and techniques of this process require thorough understanding and guidance to accomplish and involve comprehensive instruction to achieve. The process of learning and applying these techniques lead the practitioner along a journey of abounding physical health, greater mental and emotional clarity, and an expanded awareness into the ultimate potential of this life.
