Programs For Professionals

Transform your experience of work. It sometimes seems we have separated our ‘work life’ from our ‘regular life’, so that meaningful time begins after work or on the weekends. But given we spend so much of our precious time at work, how can we bring more meaning, purpose and energy into our professional lives. In our online and in-person programs, designed especially for professionals, you will find your own meaning of harmony and sense of well-being.

The spiritual practices we offer will align you so that no matter what job you are doing from nursing clients, teaching children, or running a business, you can find fulfillment and peace.

Online Course


Peace of Mind for Professionals Online
Saturdays, September 21 – November 23

Whether working from home or in an office or other setting, you meet challenges – balancing work and life, working with your boss or colleagues, adapting and adjusting to constraints and navigating your way through the uncertainties of economic, political, environmental and social change. The tasks you are asked to do may also raise integrity questions for you. Where is your life or career taking you? What is the right direction?

Working with a group of motivated professionals, Swami Sukhananda will guide you through practices. Discussions will help you to identify practical approaches to meet your own unique circumstances. This highly expert approach is supported by a deep understanding of human consciousness, the body-mind connection, and the ancient wisdom of the yoga sutras. It will give you skills and practical techniques to support a positive approach toward achieving your goals.

Teacher for Peace of Mind for Professionals and Resilient Professionals: Nurturing Peace in a Fast-Paced World
Swami Sukhananda (Dr Jayne Boys) was formerly an adviser to governments on sustainability, environmental and organizational issues. She first met Swami Radha in 1988 and was deeply moved by her experience. Sukhananda now lives and teaches yoga at Yasodhara Ashram and in Europe. She is a historian whose articles about Swami Radha’s work have appeared in British and North American yoga magazines. While enjoying the beauty of the Ashram, she is inspired by witnessing the progress participants make during their online sessions. “The transformative effects of the meditation practices and the reflective and discussion processes have adapted so effectively online. It is wonderful to have this opportunity to support professionals navigating the challenges of their daily lives.”
