    DAILY MEDITATION AT THE ASHRAM

    In the tradition of the Himalayan masters, Yoga is seen as a process wherein we systematically deal with all levels of our being, such that body and breath practices are an integral part of, and are intended to lead to meditation. Therefore our schedule of daily practice times is designed so that you have time for Asanas/Postures, Relaxation, and Pranayama/Breath before and leading into meditation. Our approach to teaching is mostly one-to-one coaching on donation basis, rather than large fee-based classes as is the case with most gymnastic oriented modern physical yoga classes. Please let us know if you would like to schedule time for individualized coaching in any phase of the systematic meditation practices of our tradition of the Himalayan masters.

    In loving service,

    Swami Jnaneshvara ("Swami J")

    Swami Ma Tripurashakti ("Ma Tri")
