On Sat. August 6th from 3pm to 5pm, please join us for RAJA YOGA: THE ROYAL PATH with SWAMI MAHESH.

Raja Yoga: The Royal Path
with Swami Mahesh

followed by an informal vegetarian Potluck Dinner
(please bring whatever you'd like to share)

Saturday, August 6 --- 3-5pm

Raja Yoga, out of the many branches of yoga,
stands out for its comprehensive and clear approach.

The science of yoga is dedicated to the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health of mankind. A proper approach to yoga brings good health, tranquility, creativity and inner harmony. It is a science of self-culture and self-evolution, and helps us develop awareness so that we remain balanced in the ups and downs, success and failure, praise and criticism in life, and attain to perfection in all our actions and endeavors.

Raja Yoga is called the Royal Path of yoga by the sages and yogis as it is scientific and broad based and does not align itself to any religious ideas.

Raja Yoga is related mainly to mental-psychological processes and its control, and therefore very few people understand it in its true light, as most of the people doing yoga associate yoga with physical postures and exercise only.

By becoming aware of the mental processes, we gradually become more sensitive to our needs, desires, creative potentials, phobias, projections, and mental blockages. The ultimate goal of yoga is perfection in life. The result is awareness, knowledge, harmony and a deep understanding of our nature. We can overcome those obstacles and difficulties and let our creative potential express itself with focused mind and a well integrated personality.

The aim of the workshop is...
to give a simple and fundamental understanding of Raja Yoga
along with a practical session to grasp it in experience and integrate it into daily life.
All levels welcome.

Registration: $30
or... Register for both the $30 Saturday Raja Yoga: The Royal Path & the $45 Sunday Chakra Dharana session together for $65

On Sun. August 7th from 1pm to 5pm, please join us for Chakra Dharana: An Integrated Approach to Awaken the Chakras presented by Swami Mahesh.

 Chakra Dharana:

An Integrated Approach to Awaken the Chakras
presented by Swami Mahesh
 
Sunday, August 7 ~ 1-5pm
 
For any sincere aspirant of yoga or just anybody who is caring for the total health of the personality, who wishes to explore the nature of relationship between body and mind, a study of the yogic and tantric concept of the Chakra system can be a virtual gold mine.

The Chakra system provides us the means to explore the different levels of our own consciousness and to maintain optimal health, higher awareness and perfect dynamic balance with the forces of both external and internal nature. In these subtle structures lie the power to transform our ordinary consciousness into a higher consciousness where everything is experienced as an expression of the Divine Consciousness and the world becomes a field of blissful creative expression.

Swami Mahesh will present...
a memorable session looking at the different dimensions and aspects of the Chakra system
with a combination of practices to experience those concepts in reality.

Chakra meditation deepens the level of self-awareness
and helps explore one's own creative potentials,
allowing that to freely and fully express for you.

Come and participate in this rare event,
which will help you integrate Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara and Dharana practices from the Chakra viewpoint.

It doesn't matter whether you practice yoga or not.
Don't miss this opportunity to meet an Indian yogi
who has wisdom and understanding of advanced yoga to share with all.

Registration: $45 for the 4-hour workshop
or... Register for both the $30 Saturday Raja Yoga: The Royal Path & the $45 Sunday Chakra Dharana session together for $65

"Being able to take the TT course was one of the best things I ever did for myself. I learned so much, not only the asanas, but how to apply them in my daily life. I feel I can always come back to the strength, the peace and the stillness whenever I feel out of balance. Learning the Yoga Sutres has given me more wisdom as to how I know I should be. Learning to meditate has been powerful for me, too. It has given me a calmness I never had before, learning to let go and not be attached to outcomes. And I have made friends that I know I will keep forever. On top of all that, being able to teach at the Institute and at my home and share this knowledge has been wonderful for me. I will always be grateful." - Vera
