Experience how yoga can support you in times of ending and beginning, change and transition. Explore your past experiences of transition and identify what choices you want to make now. What is the creative direction for your future?
By working with reflective tools — such as writing and drawing — and spiritual practices — such as Mantra and the Divine Light Invocation — you can prepare for change, access strength during transition and clarify options for your next steps.

The Divine Light Invocation
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.
Following the YDC, we offer an extended-stay program for up to five months at no charge to support you in putting your YDC learnings into action. The program is focused on Karma Yoga and active engagement in the Ashram community – another wonderful opportunity to live and grow in spiritual community. This includes participation in daily hatha, reflection time, evening satsangs and weekly classes with your peers.
