Vi­tal­ity through daily prac­tice

Swami Vish­nude­vananda, our founder, taught 5 Points of Yoga to counter the stresses of mod­ern liv­ing and trans­form peo­ple’s lives. He en­cap­su­lated his im­mense knowl­edge into these 5 key el­e­ments that of­fer all of the ben­e­fits of yoga when in­cor­po­rated into ev­ery­day life:

• asana pos­ture prac­tice

• pranayama breath­ing ex­er­cises

• con­scious re­lax­ation

• tra­di­tional yo­gic diet

• pos­i­tive think­ing and med­i­ta­tion

Study at the ashram pro­vides an im­mer­sion ex­pe­ri­ence of all of these, in­clud­ing 2-hour yoga classes of life-chang­ing prac­tices that stu­dents can take home. The ashram’s yo­gic life­style sup­ports holis­tic learn­ing and in­ner re­lax­ation — en­hanced by the prana-rich en­er­gies and beauty of the nat­u­ral world.

In­spi­ra­tion beyond your train­ing

Ev­ery day for 50 years, the ashram has main­tained its spir­i­tual prac­tices, in­clud­ing daily med­i­ta­tion and chant­ing, cre­at­ing an up­lift­ing yo­gic en­vi­ron­ment. Se­nior ashram staff, lead­ing spir­i­tual teach­ers, sci­en­tists, and per­form­ers share the cut­ting edge of what we know about the hu­man con­di­tion and our po­ten­tial. Stu­dents ex­pe­ri­ence these in­spir­ing pre­sen­ta­tions ev­ery day as part of their train­ing cour­ses at the ashram.

Change the world

It is the ashram’s mis­sion to bring peace to the world through yoga and heal­ing. Through our pro­fes­sional train­ings, you are em­pow­ered to join the in­creas­ing num­bers of holis­tic prac­ti­tion­ers and teach­ers who cre­ate true change in the world.
