Celebrating Freedom

with Swami Divyananda Ma, E-RYT 500
Price: $108.00

The Covid pandemic has brought us to our knees in countless ways, but it has also opened the door to awakening and to transformation. While the U.S. celebrates national independence, we will take a look at personal independence.

Using the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali as a reference, we will explore:

  • Our own patterns of bondage
  • The Yoga pathways to freedom
  • Strategies for post-pandemic life


“The truth will set you free” is as applicable today as always. Let us celebrate the awakening of truth and freedom!

While the U.S. celebrates national independence, let us explore the issue of individual and personal independence. 

The Covid pandemic has brought us to our knees in countless ways, but it has also opened the door to transformations and spiritual awakening. The widespread suffering compels us to find a deeper understanding of life, and with this we uncover our own patterns of bondage and the pathways to freedom.

We will be referencing the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali throughout the weekend.

Live sessions with Swami Divyananda Ma on Saturday at  9:30–11:30 am and 2–3:30 pm and Sunday 9:30–11:30 am ET.

You will have access to the video recordings for 8 weeks after the program ends, until August 29.

In addition, you will have access to the Ashram’s Live Hatha Yoga classes at 5 pm ET, recorded Ashram meditations, and inspiring talks with Sri Swami Satchidananda. You will also have access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.

Swami Divyananda

Swami Divyananda Ma, E-RYT 500, has had a wealth of experience teaching Integral Yoga around the world since 1973. She has taught at corporations, universities, the Commonwealth Cancer Center, and for the Dr. Dean Ornish Reversing Heart Disease programs. She has also served as one of Integral Yoga’s Basic Hatha teacher trainers.

Swami Divyananda Ma took monastic vows in 1975 from the great saint and yogi, Sri Swami Satchidananda. Over the years she has served as the director of the Integral Yoga Institutes in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and as Ashram Manager at Yogaville. She also served for ten years as the director of the Integral Yoga Institute in Coimbatore, India; this immersion into the South Indian culture has given depth to her understanding and practice of Yoga.

Now an itinerant monk, Swami Divyananda is constantly “on the road.” She leads the annual Sacred India Tours to sacred sites in India in addition to international Yoga retreats and trainings. See more at sacredindiatours.org
