PROGRAMS AND EVENTS


YOGA AND RELATIONSHIPS with Mohini and Shyam
NEW YORK CITY SIVANANDA YOGA VEDANTA CENTER
Sunday August 27, 6:15-8:30pm

Discover how the classical teachings of yoga can help you find and sustain a rich, loving relationship. Explore the yogic keys to a deep and fulfilling partnership at the historic New York City Sivananda Center in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. Learn how to prepare yourself physically, mentally, and spiritually for a life of companionship based on love rather than romance or need.

This special satsang, which is free and open to all, will be preceeded by an Advanced Asana Class with Shyam from 4-6pm (Yoga class is $15. Space is limited, preregistration required.)

Following a spiritual pilgrimage to the Himalayas in 1999, Mohini and Shyam renounced their professional careers to dedicate themselves to the practice, study and teaching of the full range of authentic yogic practices in the lineage of Swami Sivananda and Swami Vishnudevananda. They are the co-directors of the Yoga Warehouse, which they founded in 1998. They regularly teach special courses at Sivananda ashrams and have helped to train and certify hundreds of yoga teachers in classical hatha yoga as instructors in the Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training Courses.

Satsang is free and open to all. For more information, go to www.sivanandanyc.org



ONGOING


SATSANG (MEDITATION AND KIRTAN)
Every Sunday evening, 7-8:30pm


Satsang means ‘“association with the wise.” Meditating together in a group creates a strong spiritual atmosphere which allows a deeper experience of meditation. In satsang, people of different levels practice together – from newcomers to experienced Yoga teachers.

Satsang is the heart of the Yoga practice. It consists of 30 minutes of silent meditation, 30 minutes of meditative chanting of mantras and kirtan and an easy-to-follow reading and/or talk on yoga philosophy or psychology. The steady, joyful practice of satsang tangibly builds the energy at the yoga center.

Our chant book reflects the inclusiveness of the Sivananda lineage, with a section of chants for each of the main deities, as well as chants in English and Hebrew. Many of the Sanskrit chants are followed by translations. There is a mysterious power in every word. Our Daily Chants (Jaya Ganesha) and a few bhajans are usually accompanied by harmonium and simple percussion. It is not your voice, but the inner feeling that matters.

We recite Swami Sivananda's Universal Prayer and conclude satsang with arati, an offering and receiving of Divine Light. We also share prasad, a sweet offering.

Beginners and members of all traditions welcome. This is a free event although donations are gratefully accepted. Please arrive at least five minutes early.

"As Satsang is the only safe boat to take you to the other shore of Bliss or Moksha [liberation], you should all try as best as is in your power, never to miss it." - Swami Sivananda




HELP FOR HAITI CAMPAIGN
You can still give!

After Hurricane Matthew caused widespread destruction and suffering in Haiti in early October 2016, the Yoga Warehouse teachers and students began a charitable campaign to help. The result was that we collected a substantial amount of food that was delivered to Haiti through the Food for the Poor organization, and almost $1500.00 in monetary donations for two worthy Haitian charities on which we chose to focus our efforts.

Although the formal campaign has concluded, it is still possible to make direct donations to those two charities. If you would like information on how to give, go to:

The Lambi Fund of Haiti
(www.lambifund.org)
or
