Celebrating 50 years of the Yoga Development Course
Return to your heart centre! Return to your spiritual centre! Gather together with Yoga Development Course alumni to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this transformative three-month program. Since the first YDC in 1969, 640 people have dived deep through the immersion in Swami Radha’s teachings of Light, reflection, choice and awareness.
The weekend will include a welcoming reception, workshops, morning Hidden Language Hatha Yoga classes and evening satsangs in the new Temple of Light. And of course, celebratory meals and treats! Take time to reflect in the natural surroundings and prayer rooms. Catch up with friends. We look forward to welcoming you back.
Cost: $110/day; deposit $50 (See our Cancellation Policy)
Includes shared accommodation, three meals daily, morning hatha, retreat/workshop, and evening satsang.
Upon cancellation of a course, retreat, or other program, Yasodhara Ashram will hold your deposit for application towards your next stay for one calendar year.
Deposits are non-refundable.
This intensive two-week teacher certification program is based on a foundation of self-inquiry and experiential learning/teaching. Using the questions and practices in Kundalini Yoga for the West, you will study the potential of each level of consciousness, then teach in small groups with your colleagues. To access guidance from the unconscious mind, you will explore the symbolism of your own dreams and learn to help others in their personal interpretations, using Swami Radha’s dream yoga method (as elucidated in Realities of the Dreaming Mind).
This certification program can help you gain confidence in teaching the spiritual dimensions of yoga by focusing on Light, building on your personal experience and learning to create a framework adaptable to your students’ needs.
Prerequisites: Completion of the Yoga Development Course and the YDC book reflections.
Renewal: Every three years.
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.
