ABOUT SHIKHAA

Shikhaa is a guiding light to all who wish for freedom from the mind’s limited view. For thirty-five years, Shikhaa has lived in India, immersed in a yogic lifestyle of meditation and Satang (Self knowledge).

Having deeply studied the teachings from the Vedic tradition of non-dualism (Advaita Vedanta) she is a modern spiritual teacher who shares this ancient knowledge in a relevant and accessible format.

Shikhaa is a living example of what she teaches. Join her to meditate and integrate healthy thinking in order to live a conscious and loving life. “Meditation is natural and allows the revelation of your ever-free Self to be revealed and directly hear your inherent wisdom and joy.” —Shikhaa

ABOUT MAYANK

Like many health practitioners, Mayank began his journey as a patient. However, unlike most practitioners, he was living high in the Himalayas at the time. He spent most of his adult life there, meditating with an enlightened Being and imbibing the knowledge of Advaita Vedant.

A meditative lifestyle involves many hours of sitting and study, so staying fit and active is vital, therefore, asana (physical posture) is one of the eight limbs of Yoga. Over the years, he cultivated a strong hatha-yoga practice and now shares his love of movement with a diverse range of students, witnessing how all ages and abilities can flourish in their well-being.

Mayank incorporates neuro-science with modern movement, which is fast becoming the new look and feel of contemporary yoga and exercise.

Meditation

Shikhaa’s guided meditation leads the mind directly to the ever-present awareness, free from identification with the troubles of the thinking mind. After meditating with Shikhaa, one is able to effortlessly and joyfully integrate meditation in their daily lives and witness the upliftment in their sense of well-being.

Satsang

Satsang ignites the enquiry into life’s deeper purpose, based on non-dual teachings (Advaita Vedanta) by way of discussion, contemplation, meditation and techniques how to apply wisdom in action.

Shikhaa teaches in the spirit of spontaneity. Using every-day examples, her satsang cultivates freedom from the mind's limited perspective and opens our potential to live an integrated and fulfilled life. “Satsang and meditation are like two wings of a bird; in unison they turn the attention of the mind to rediscover our true nature - ever-present, ever-lit, ever-free.” –Shikhaa

Mayank's Movement

Somatic Movement is a gentle aware practise that works with the muscle to brain connection. By moving slowly and consciously we allow muscles to lengthen effortlessly and release tension held there. Because emotional and mental tension also get stored in our body, we are not just releasing muscles, but our whole being (soma = our full being). The result is pain free movement, with greater mobility and balance, and a sense of ease permeating the whole nervous system.

Functional Movement is a more dynamic practise, that compliments the yin nature of somatic movement beautifully. Our bodies and brain need to move in ways that foster strength and stability. Mayank takes a playful, and exploratory approach to moving that encourages us to find movement opportunities in our life every day.

Conscious movement leads us to a truer expression of ourselves, bringing clarity and well-being into our action and our stillness.

Spirit of Kirtan

Singing simple Sanskrit mantras as a means to integrate the knowledge of joy and freedom into our direct experience.

Kirtan is not about performing, rather it heals the past impressions that have been built in the mind due to the pressures to perform, to succeed, or to impress others.

While living in India, Shikhaa and Mayank studied Indian classical music and joined many kirtans sung in temples all over India. They bring this lightness and joy of singing in their retreats.

Kirtan simply uplifts the spirit, through the powerful resonance of the Sanskrit sounds ones entire body can be transformed. At the end of the day, the community gathers, the guitars and drums come out, and the program is completed with a celebration of the purpose of life – to live in love and joy. More about Kirtan.
