Kali Namaskarah

Intermediate Yoga Classes
w/ Narendra and more
July 20 – August 15

Kali Namaskarah is the most challenging and dynamic hatha yoga practice offered  in Amma’s community.

The course starts with a Kali Puja LIVE from Amma’s Kalari.

Initiated by Amma in 2014, the Kali Namaskarah yoga asana sequence combines the creativity, intensity and playfulness of Mother Kali with the stillness and wisdom of Lord Shiva. Extremely popular with yoga enthusiasts.

The Kali Namaskarah sequence will be gradually developed over 12 classes. This 1 ½ hour sequence, practiced as prayer to Kali, includes vinyasa flow, inversions and backbends, and culminates in a long guided relaxation.

When designing this course, Amma emphasized that she “wants people to understand the deeper meaning of Kali.”

How an Online Retreat Works

Your day of practice begins at 6:30 a.m. no matter where you are in the world. You continue the day following the retreat schedule in your own time zone.

The schedule has been designed observing the traditional daily times for spiritual practice. As the earth turns, each of you will greet the new day with lamp lighting and spiritual exercises, then pass the torch westward until the entire earth is encircled with the radiance of our practice.

Thank you for encouraging us at home to follow the schedule in our time zone. It really freed me from the desire to do it simultaneously with Amritapuri and kept that extra level of stress out of the mix. It was beautiful to think of others in my time zone doing the practices along with me.” – Ananda Devi, USA

*For participants located in time zones ahead of Indian Standard Time (IST), we encourage you to start the retreat one day later. For example, if the orientation for the retreat is April 16th, your orientation will be on April 17th, and if the first full day of practice is April 17th, your first full day of practice will be April 18th*
