Conscious Living in Times of Change @ Yasodhara Ashram

May 5 – 7, Oct 20 – 22

We live in a world of fast-paced, continual change – processing endless input and meeting demands for flexibility and quick decisions. As life speeds up, we can lose perspective and a deep sense of meaning. Yogic practices are designed to bring us back to our ‘grounding,’ to stillness and to connection to purpose. Join us for a breath, relaxation, visualisation and reflection – a time of returning to centre.
