What others are saying about the 10 Days of Yoga
Ten Life-Changing Days
Three women in the 2015 Yoga Development Course recently reflected on their experience of the 10 Days of Yoga as fertile ground for future growth.
“The 10 Days is a sweet introduction to the teachings,” commented Margaret Pokroy of Edmonton. “Through the overview of the practices, I was attracted to everything – the Divine Feminine, the Light, mantras, the energy here.”
“This was the longest retreat I’d ever taken,” recalled Marcia Bamber of Ottawa. “It helped me to let go, relax and embrace what I was learning. I felt significantly calmer afterwards, and it lasted for a long time.”
Marilyn Allpress, who had been doing yoga for 25 years, took an outreach class in Toronto, where Swami Radhananda encouraged her to come to the Ashram. “The 10 Days changed me. My feet became more firmly planted in who I am; I dealt with things differently, and my friends noticed.”
The three women expressed how the practices help both in their daily lives and in their healing professions. The 10 Days created a desire for more, and all three returned for this year’s YDC. They continue to be thrilled by “the incredible food, beautiful spacious rooms and the amazing level of acceptance and support from the teachers and teachings.”
“I took this course at a crisis point in my life. It helped me see more clearly through a tough time, but it also gave me a new lens to view life. And tools that I can use everyday now. If I could afford it, I would give the gift of the 10 Days of Yoga to everyone I know. It is life changing.”
“The people, the food, the satsangs, the love and compassion of others in my group—this entire experience has brought me an immense amount of gratitude.”
“Being here has meant finding a spiritual home that I know I can return to. That in itself is a great comfort.”
“I have healed in so many ways it is hard to count. I am inspired to go home and put all I have learned to work in my day–to-day life.”
