SHIVA SADHANA RETREAT

with Radasi and Yorgos Aryavrat

An authentic experience of the ancient and traditional practices of Yoga & Tantra. 

Immerse in a unique tantra and yoga retreat, brought in this format for the first time in the Czech Republic.

This retreat invites you to take part in a traditional tantric sadhana (focused spiritual practice) to discover the profound effects that these practices have on your body-mind system, vital life force, and your overall life purpose. 

Guided by Yorgos and Radasi Aryavrat from Greece, who are senior teachers in an Indian traditional tantra lineage with a combined experience of 60 years in yoga and spiritual practices.

The unique aspect of this retreat is your participation in a traditional tantric sadhana dedicated to Shiva, renowned as our deepest conscious essence. To awaken this potential we use mantra, the creation of a living yantra, and fire yagna. This offers you an authentic spiritual experience that is rare to access in our destinations. These ancient tools of Tantra awaken the divine energy that already exists within you.


The retreat also offers an in-depth experience with traditionally taught yogic and tantric practices that include tantra-themed yoga classes, tantric and Yogic philosophy, pranayama breathing techniques, guided meditation, yoga nidra, devotional singing and rituals such as Aarti.

Whether you are an experienced practitioner or new to yoga and tantra, the retreat is a profound opportunity to ignite spiritual growth and personal transformation.

Meet your teachers

Ra Lalita Dasi has been practicing Yoga for over 27 years, she is part of a Traditional Indian Tantra Lineage and receives direct guidance from her Guru, Guruji RajKumar Baswar.

As Satya Loka School’s founder, she continuously teaches with a commitment to spreading true, authentic tantra and yoga. 

Radasi’s deepest passion is to live immersed in Yoga, traditional Tantra, meditation, dance, devotion and ritual. 

From the early age of seventeen, Yorgos Aryavrat began meditating, pursuing spiritual efforts and deepening his studies in Orthodox mysticism and gnostic Christianity. He has always been interested in experiencing spirituality directly, rather than an intellectual understanding. He was initiated into the Kriya Yoga lineage and practice.

Together, Radasi and Yorgos teach within the school Satya Loka, and guide countless people in Europe and India, with the ongoing mantra sadhana and authentic Yoga. They are dedicated to preserving the purity and less-known practices of Tantra. They are initiated to offer beginner to advanced levels in Tantra and Yoga, teaching mostly from the right-hand practices of Tantra, using ancient tools such as Mantra, Yantra, Yagna, Yoga and Kriya, infused with devotion and a down-to-earth friendly approach.

Mayka Dolejš serves as a supporting teacher and organizer of the retreat. Out of her passion and dedication to authentic traditional yoga, she has been practising for over 12 years. She received more than 700 hours of training abroad, with the latest and most profound being the Yogini teacher training with Radasi in Greece. She considers yoga to be an all-encompassing transformational holistic system of well-being through which one can cultivate a healthy, conscious and meaningful life. Mayka shares hatha/tantra yoga practice regularly in Prague, organizes self-discovery events and is involved in the popularisation of functional food and ritual cacao.

Dávkování:

Pro každodenní pití: 15-35 gramů na osobu
(na začátku doporučujeme menší dávku a postupně zvyšovat jak se budete s kakaem seznamovat)

Ceremoniální: 35-55 gramů na osobu

Čím méně kakaa, tím méně tekutiny:

15-35 gramů kakaa – na 200-250 ml tekutiny.

35-55 gramů – na 250-300 ml tekutiny.

Tipy:

Pro výraznou chuť a prožitek doporučujeme vodu. Pro zjemnění chuti oblíbené rostlinné mléko.

Kakao obsahuje zdravý tuk – kakaové máslo, není proto třeba přidávat nic dalšího. 

Možnosti dochucení: kardamom, skořice, chilli, zázvor, muškátový oříšek, hřebíček, sůl, med, javorový sirup, sirup z agáve, datle, arašídové máslo. (Úpřimně, my kakao pijeme zcela čisté).

Dávky kakaa závisí na individuálních potřebách, preferencích a zdravotním stavu každého člověka. Kakao můžete v menších množstvách přidávat také do smoothies, müsli, koláčů nebo jako topping.

Postup:

  • Zvažte odpovídající množství kakaa na kuchyňské váze a pokrájejte na menší kousky nebo nastrouhejte
  • Ohřejte vodu nebo mléko na 60-70 stupňů (nebo i v chladnější verzi, není třeba přivádět kakao do varu)
  • Přidejte kakao
  • Míchejte, dokud se zcela nerozpustí, použijte míchadlo nebo vše rozmixujte do hladké konzistence (je možné kakao vařit i v thermomixu při větších množstvách, nebo změs teplé tekutiny a kakaa nejdřív rozmixovat v blendru a pak ohřát na požadovanou teplotu)
  • Dochucujte podle představivosti nebo nechte čisté 

 

Udělejte si z přípravy kakaa svůj denní léčivý rituál!

  • Zastavte se, nadechněte, vydechněte a zamyslete se nad záměrem, s jakým kakao připravujete.
  • Vytvořte si hezkou atmosféru, zapalte vonnou tyčinku, svíčku nebo si pusťte oblíbenou hudbu.
  • Je to vaše příležitost ponořit se na chvíli do sebe, nebo si udělat oslavu s rodinou a přáteli či sdílecí kruh pro vyjádření svých pocitů, prožitků, snů.
  • Kakao připravujte s úctou k danému okamžiku, k sobě i k rostlině.
  • Kakao popíjejte s vděčností a otevřeností, vychutnávejte si každý doušek, objevujte nové chuťové tóny a skryté příběhy (i ty v sobě).

 

Ať vám tahle medicína z prírody slouží ke zdraví, síle, propojení, tvořivosti, radosti a lásce!

Buďte opatrní a kakao konzumujte raději v menších dávkách jestli:

  • Jste alergičtí na čokoládu
  • Užíváte psychotropní léky
  • Užíváte léky na krevní tlak
  • Máte problémy se srdcem
  • Máte ledvinové kameny
  • Během těhotenství
  • Máte potíže se spánkem (kakao všeobecně nedoporučujeme pít před spaním)
