    Explore below for bitesize teachings, snapshots and highlights from the world of Chi Kri Yoga.

    PHYSICAL EXERCISE

    PHYSICAL EXERCISE

    Even if we choose to lead a more spiritual life, certain parts of our bodies (like our muscles and bones) are going to have a deeply interactive relationship with an uncompromising physical world. Therefore it is fundamentally important to ensure our mobility, suppleness, strength, speed and stamina are optimized for as long as possible in our lives.


    At Chi Kri, we cover these variations on this theme:

    • - Traditional yoga (asana)
    • - Chi Kri yoga variations
    • - Chi Kri Hip Hop Yoga
    • - Other exercise systems (Ab/core work, weight-training, boxing etc)

    DIET AND HEALTH

    DIET AND HEALTH

    What we think, feel, eat and drink could all be considered a diet of sorts. They can contribute greatly to our health, vitality and healing power.


    At Chi Kri, we cover these variations on this theme:

    • - Food psychology
    • - Quantum biology
    • - Food and drink nutritional advise
    • - Food and drink protocols e.g. juicing Healing health systems e.g. colonics
    • - EBP (evidence-based health theories)
    • - Help with other general minor ailments Psychological cancer disease management
    • - Medicinal natural products e.g. wheatgrass Holistic health protocols e.g. ayurveda and Chinese medicine

    BREATHING EXERCISES

    BREATHING EXERCISES

    Every cell in our body requires oxygen. But getting oxygen into the body is not the only thing the lungs do. Every time we exhale properly we are throwing out hundreds of toxins too. The manipulation of the entire breathing system also has many other benefits. These can range from adjusting the internal thermostat of the body, all the way to lifting one towards deep states of meditation


    These are included in the areas of breath-work Chi Kri works with:

    • - Chi Kri breathing exercises
    • - Classical yogic breathing (pranayama)

    INSPIRATION

    INSPIRATION

    The importance of the written language in the awakening of the soul can never be overstated. Throughout history, human beings have leant into the realisations, wisdoms, teachings and observations of others via this medium. Without language, it’s safe to say that humanity would never have been inspired to grow beyond mundanity.


    At Chi Kri, we cover these inspirational areas:

    • - Mind Yoga
    • - Philosophy
    • - Spiritual Poetry
    • - Scriptural study (including the Mahabharata and Yamas and Niyamas)
    Avatar

    SCIENCE

    SCIENCE

    In years gone by, faith, tradition and culture were enough to convince social groups about spiritualty and God. But nowadays, there is, quite rightly, more of a demand for scientific explanations for mystical or esoteric matters.


    With a wide variety of hard and soft sciences to choose from, Chi Kri focuses on these subjects:

    • - Metaphysics
    • - Vedic science
    • - Quantum physics
    • - Western and Vedic Astrology

    CREATIVITY

    CREATIVITY

    Creativity serves four important purposes to humankind. Firstly, it gives us a means of accessing other peoples’ ideas in new and stimulating ways - like music. Secondly, it gives us a medium to express ourselves in abstract or symbolic ways - like art. Thirdly, it help us detoxify our emotions, like dance or poetry. And finally – it’s just fun!


    Chi Kri works with written creativity; and in these ways:

    • - Rap
    • - Poetry
    • - Creative writing

    SERVICE

    SERVICE

    A Chi Kri Mind Yoga quote states: “Happiness is the only thing which doubles when it’s divided.” Yoga guru Paramahansa Yogananda says, “Life should be chiefly service”. Whilst we naturally serve our family and friends, the aim of a Chi Kri student is to attempt to serve the community, and our world at large, in some way - large or small.


    The current projects we work with involve:

    • - Orphanages
    • - Anti-knife crime

    LIBERATION

    LIBERATION

    The ultimate aim of Chi Kri, and yoga in general, is to control excessive fluctuations of the mind, emotions and nervous system – in order to access the silent, still and eternal soul and Spirit within us all.


    This is achieved through four specific states, which Chi Kri expounds upon:

    • - Relaxation (pratyahara)
    • - Concentration (dharana)
    • - Meditation (dhyana)
    • - Samadhi (the God state)
