Qi-Yo program and curriculum
Throughout the wonderful journey of Qi-Yo Yoga Retreat, you will have daily Qi-Yo Yoga and Qi-Gong classes. Qi-Yo Multi-Yoga is the first system to unite Qi-Gong, Tai and Balinese practices with traditional Vedantic .The system came to life in the early 1990s and in January 2013, after years of perfecting it, it received acknowledgement of being the first system of its kind. The Yoga Federation, Assist World Records Foundation and the city Mayor came together in Pondicherry, India to give it a public recognition. Qi-Yo Multi-Yoga is also the first system that offers Theosophical philosophy in a wide spectrum of different world yoga sources, spiritual practices, holistic methods and esoteric teachings.
Conceived by Swami Agung in 1996, regardless of age or physical condition, practitioners enhance overall health, reduce stress, gain flexibility and focus on their life purpose. A regular Qi-Yo routine combines breath-extension with asana routines, as well as meditation, energy enhancement and cleansing visualization and chanting techniques to promote total wellbeing, mental clarity, and inner peace. We teach classes, workshops and teacher-training programs, lead esoteric journeys around the world, and create holistic centers worldwide. Qi-gong, chi kung, or chi is a practice of aligning breath, movement, and awareness for exercise, healing, and meditation.
With roots in Chinese medicine, martial arts, and philosophy, qigong is traditionally viewed as a practice to cultivate and balance qi (chi) or what has been translated as “intrinsic life energy”. Typically a qi-gong practice involves rhythmic breathing coordinated with slow stylized repetition of fluid movement, a calm mindful state, and visualization of guiding qi through the body. Qi-gong is now practiced throughout China and worldwide, and is considered by some to be exercise, and by others to be a type of alternative medicine or meditative practice. From a philosophical perspective Qi-gong is believed to help develop human potential, allow access to higher realms of awareness, and awaken one’s “true nature”.

- Philosophy, techniques, and practice of Qi-Gong in China
- Balinese traditions, shamanic rituals and tribal customs in the Indonesian Qi-Gong heritage

- Cultivating Chi Energy: In traditional Chinese culture, qì (also chi or ch’i) is an active principle forming part of any living thing. Qi is frequently translated as “life energy”, “life force”, or “energy flow”. Qi is the central underlying principle in traditional Chinese medicine and martial arts. The literal translation of “qi” is “breath”, “air”, or “gas”. Concepts similar to qi can be found in many cultures, for example, prana and cit in Hindu religion, mana in Hawaiian culture, lüng in Tibetan Buddhism, ruah in Hebrew culture, and Vital energy in Western philosophy.

- Introduction to Theosophy. Theosophy (from Greek θεοσοφία theosophia, from θεός theos, divine + σοφία sophia, wisdom; literally “divine wisdom”), refers to systems of esoteric philosophy concerning, or investigation seeking direct knowledge of, presumed mysteries of being and nature, particularly concerning the nature of divinity. Theosophy is considered a part of the broader field of esotericism, referring to hidden knowledge or wisdom that offers the individual enlightenment and salvation. The word esoteric dates back to the 2nd century CE. The theosophist seeks to understand the mysteries of the universe and the bonds that unite the universe, humanity and the divine. The goal of theosophy is to explore the origin of divinity and humanity, and the world. From investigation of those topics theosophists try to discover a coherent description of the purpose and origin of the universe.

- Integral Yoga. In the teachings of Sri Aurobindo, integral yoga (or purna yoga, Sanskrit for full or complete yoga, sometimes also called supramental yoga) refers to the process of the union of all the parts of one’s being with the Divine, and the transmutation of all of their jarring elements into a harmonious state of higher divine consciousness and existence.Sri Aurobindo’s integral yoga should not be confused with a trademark “Integral Yoga” of Swami Satchidananda.Sri Aurobindo defined integral yoga in the early 1900s as “a path of integral seeking of the Divine by which all that we are is in the end liberated out of the Ignorance and its undivine formations into a truth beyond the Mind, a truth not only of highest spiritual status but of a dynamic spiritual self-manifestation in the universe.”He describes the nature and practice of integral yoga in his opus The Synthesis of Yoga. As the title of that work indicates, his integral yoga is a yoga of synthesis, intended to harmonize the paths of karma, jnana, and bhakti yoga as described in the Bhagavad Gita. It can also be considered a synthesis between Vedanta and Tantra, and even between Eastern and Western approaches to spirituality. Sri Aurobindo, and the Mother.
