May 21st 10am – 1pm

Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental & emotional relaxation. In Yoga Nidra, the state of relaxation is reached by turning inward, away from outer experiences. If the consciousness can be separated from external awareness and from sleep, it becomes very powerful and can be applied in many ways, for example, to develop memory, increase knowledge and creativity, or to transform one’s nature.

Learning first hand from a teacher is the best way to learn Yoga Nidra. The goal of this workshop is to leave students with a complete understanding of what Yoga Nidra is, why we should do it, and how we should do it. Students will actually practice Yoga Nidra in the workshop. It is suitable for both beginners and experienced yoga students.

Space is limited.  A simple, vegatarian lunch will be provided after the workshop.

Dharma is a concept of central importance in philosophy and religion.  It has multiple meanings. It is difficult to provide a single concise definition for Dharma, as the word has a long and varied history. There is no equivalent single word translation for Dharma in English language.  Yog Sadhan Ashram is offering a workshop on the topic of Dharma on Saturday, April 2 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. A simple, vegetarian lunch will be provided.

The workshop will be conducted by Acharya Hersh Ji, the Director of Yog Sadhan Ashram.  In this retreat, we will cover in detail the definition, meaning and types of Dharma.  Please come with questions.

Register:  Please email to reserve your spot.

Cost: $35 suggested minimum donation, however, no one will be turned away from lack of funds. YSA is a 501(c)3 organization, and donations are deductible to the extent allowed by law.
