Next Meetup

Yoga at the U of M
I will be facilitating a FREE weekly Yoga class at the University of Minnesota. The class will involve an hour of Yoga asanas (postures) geared towards relaxing the body and calming the mind, followed by a group meditation. After the practice session we will learn and discuss about the how they various practices of Yoga help in harmonizing the body, mind and spirit and aid one to experience Yoga (as in Union). The class is open to all students, staff, and faculty of the University as well as members of the community. If you are interested in joining please contact me so we can determine if there is enough free space. We will be meeting every Wednesday 5–6:30 pm in the Mayo Meditation room, which is part of the Center for Spirituality and Healing at the U. You may 'like' the facebook page https://www.facebook.com/YogaAtUofM to stay updated about room changes, schedules etc. Peace to all.

What we're about

Journey to Ananda or journey to the heart of Infinite love and bliss. This is the path of yoga and devotion

Yoga is not merely a physical exercise it can also be achieved with mantra and meditation. This complete science is a liberating experience of oneness of the body, sooths the mind and inspires the spirit.

Ananda is the joy one experiences when one connects with the Divine. Upon that connection one sees that Divine light in all. This is achieved by two forms of service: service of the inside by practicing meditation and service of the outside by selflessly serving our fellow beings.

Yoga practices very greatly this form of yoga is Astanga Yoga. This method of yoga works with the eight limbs of Yoga: Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi. These practices are imparted freely in this tradition of by a teacher ,customized to each individual, worldwide

--

In this tradition of Ananda Marga Yoga, we meet once a week, in a gathering called Dharma Cakra, where we sing kiirtan (chanting the name of the Divine), do meditation, followed by a potluck dinner.

For those new to Yoga and meditation or those interested in deepening their practice, we impart instructions in the complete Yogic lifestyle including a personal meditation mantra, asanas (postures), diet, psychology and philosophy. FREE of charge.

If you are interested in learning meditation please feel free to message me (Sucharit) through this group. From time to time, we invite Yoga acaryas (traditional Yogic monks and nuns) that are able to impart personal meditation lessons, and share their experience and insight about these practices.

Aum Shantih,

Sucharit
