Yoga Development Course 2019: Celebrating 50 Years of Learning
Jan 9 @ 6:45 pm – Apr 9 @ 5:00 pm
Yoga Development Course 2019: Celebrating 50 Years of Learning @ Yasodhara Ashram

The Yoga Development Course (YDC) offers three months of yoga in the deepest sense of the word, as a path to Liberation. Come and expand your understanding. Heal. Give yourself the spiritual nourishment you need. Challenge yourself to evolve.

This program, set in the Ashram’s pristine forest and lake during quiet winter, offers a balance of self-inquiry with group work in a community of like-minded people, a process that leads to new discoveries and purposeful change.

During the YDC, spiritual practices such as mantra, dream yoga and Light meditations help you access hidden levels of mind. And three months of reflection supports a process of clarification. Who are you now and how do you want to live your life? Which old patterns are limiting? Where have you created a helpful foundation?

2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the YDC. Swami Radha’s original vision is vibrantly alive at the core of this program while Swami Radhananda’s experiential learning approach updates the teaching process.

The YDC is the prerequisite for our Teacher Certification programs.

We also offer an extended-stay program after the YDC for up to five months at no charge to support students in the work they have done during the YDC.   Visit the YDC page to find out more.

Searching for Silence in a Noisy World

Searching for Silence in a Noisy World @ Yasodhara Ashram

Aug 20 – 22

The massive bombardment of our senses from modern technology can drive us away from the true source of power and energy within. This retreat can help uncover your sense of inner knowing. Through times of silence and practices such as watching your mind, calming the breath, chanting mantras — and unplugging from electronic devices – you can become receptive to your interior landscape. Listen to your inner voices – what do they say? Which to follow and which to let go? Can you find a place of rest?

This retreat will include times of speaking as well as periods of intentional silence (mauna). Please be prepared to commit to a few days without electronic devices.

Cost: $500; $100 deposit (See our Cancellation Policy)
Includes shared accommodation, three meals daily, morning hatha, retreat/workshop, and evening satsang.

Yoga Development Course @ Yasodhara Ashram

The Yoga Development Course (YDC) offers three months of yoga in the deepest sense of the word, as a path to Liberation. Come and expand your understanding. Heal. Give yourself the spiritual nourishment you need. Challenge yourself to evolve.

This program, set in the Ashram’s pristine forest and lake during quiet winter, offers a balance of self-inquiry with group work in a community of like-minded people, a process that leads to new discoveries and purposeful change.

The YDC is the prerequisite for our Teacher Certification programs.
