Inspiration for the Spiritual Journey

with Swami Asokananda, E-RYT 500
and Swami Ramananda, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT
Price: $35.00

Join Swamis Ramananda and Asokananda for inspiration and encouragement on your spiritual journey. In this online workshop, they will share how they maintain their steadiness in the life of the Spirit.

The spiritual path is beset with challenges and pitfalls, and progress is slow. Almost all of us will greatly benefit from having friends who have traveled this road, who can share their experience, and who care enough to want to support us.

These two senior and respected Integral Yoga swamis will discuss what drew them into the spiritual life, what has sustained them, and what is inspiring to them at this time.

Half of the session will be dedicated to Q&A. Please bring your heartfelt questions.

Live session with Swami Ramananda and Swami Asokananda on Sunday at 11 am–12:30 pm ET.

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

You will have access to the video recording for 8 weeks after the program ends, until January 31, 2021.

Swami Asokananda, a monk since 1975, is one of Integral Yoga’s® (IY) foremost teachers—known for his warmth, intelligence, and good humor. His teaching comes out of his own practice and experience while absorbing the wisdom of his Guru, Sri Swami Satchidananda.

While he enjoys sharing the practical wisdom of yogic philosophy (especially the great Indian scripture, the Bhagavad Gita), he also loves his practice of Hatha Yoga. He is one of Yogaville’s primary instructors for Intermediate and Advanced Hatha Yoga Teacher Trainings.

He presently serves as president of the IY Institute in New York City. Before this position, he served as the President of Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville and Integral Yoga International.
