Vedic Rounding

Rounding is an advanced practice that is designed to deepen your meditation experience. It creates deep rest for the whole system so can release deeper stress and fatigue stored in the body. It is a sequence of gentle asana (body positions), pranayama (breath work) and meditation to drop you into profound rest and relaxation. Rounding is a powerful practice that super charges your meditation to help you become less stressed and experience greater flow.

Once you learn how to round you can do it at home as part of your regular meditation routine. If at any time you need a refresher you can join a rounding workshop and jump back in. We also offer rounding retreats which give you the opportunity to take a deep dive into your unbounded nature. Retreat offerings coming soon!

Rounding is also a prerequisite to all advanced courses so once you learn you can take our 12 month Rishi Training program.


INTRO TO VEDIC ROUNDING WORKSHOP --- $110

Includes rounding instruction, knowledge session, take-home notes, Ayurvedic lunch/dinner and community hangout.

Siddha Training - Mastery of the Self Course

NOTE: This advanced course is only for those who have completed Rishi Training. It is also the final prerequisite for becoming a Vedic meditation teacher. 

Following on from Rishi Training, Siddha Training is the next advanced course that we share. It's a 6 part series (the final installment is a 5 day retreat) that will completely upgrade your experience of life. This course re-enlivens the teachings of Maharishi Patanjali’s ‘Yoga Sutras’ and will allow you to embody your fullest potential. These sutras were cognised over 2700 years ago to cultivate ‘siddhis’ (capabilities), which are extraordinary human powers. When we embody the capabilities of a siddha we are able to experience life as a fully realised human, and then we get to experience the full joy of life itself.  

Taking this course involves you learning a new practice that you do at the end of your meditation. Practicing everyday develops the capabilities of inner strength, intuition, celestial perception and many more. So, if you're ready to take your meditation practice to the next level, the siddhis are the perfect way to master your experience of life.
