INTRODUCTION TO MANTRA MEDITATION, PART 2 with Shyam
Theory and Practice
Saturday November 16, 2-4pm
In the first workshop in October, we discussed the purpose of meditation and what the yogis really mean by the term meditation. We also explored the practice of concentration, an essential first step on the journey to meditation, and introduced the subject of mantras, a spiritual energy encased in a sound vibration.
In this second workshop we will briefly review the material covered in the first session, and go more deeply into the simple but powerful practice of mantra meditation for the purpose of turning within.
Shyam is the founder and co-director of the Yoga Warehouse, which was established in 1998. He regularly teaches special courses at Sivananda ashrams and has helped to train and certify hundreds of Yoga teachers in classical Hatha Yoga as an instructor in the Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training Courses.
$25 ($20 for those who attended October workshop). Space limited, advance signup required. To register call the YW at 954-525-7726 or e-mail us at email@example.com.
COMMUNITY KIRTAN !
with special guest Radhika
Sunday November 17, 7pm
Unwind from the stress of the week, purify your heart and soothe your soul. Kirtan (chanting together) is an ancient spiritual practice that has wonderful transformative power and healing energy. To sing these mantras is to join a stream of consciousness and devotion that has been flowing for centuries. Chanting in a group is also uplifting and great fun!
Join us in welcoming our special guest for this event. Radhika, the director of the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center in Chicago, is a sincere yoga practitioner and an enthusiastic teacher who considers herself to be a student above all else. Her favorite sadhana is chanting the names of the Divine.
By donation. For more information, call the YW at 954-525-7726 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

with SHYAM AND MOHINI
SIVANANDA ASHRAM YOGA RETREAT, BAHAMAS
The Sivananda Yoga Teachers’ Training Course (TTC) is a profound personal experience designed to build a firm foundation of inner discipline and provide the proficiency to teach yoga to others. This course, which was the first Yoga teachers’ training course in the West, is taught all over the world at different times of the year. Nearly 50,000 people have now taken the TTC.
In December, you can join Shyam and Mohini of the Yoga Warehouse and other senior staff of the Sivananda organization at the Yoga Retreat in the Bahamas for this inspiring 4-week experience. Mastery of any Yoga practice is not necessary, only your sincere desire for knowledge and your commitment to personal growth. The course fulfills the requirements for Yoga Alliance RYT 200-hour certification.
Shyam and Mohini are the co-directors of the Yoga Warehouse, an award-winning Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center in Fort Lauderdale, 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 and Advanced Yoga Teacher Training Courses.
We are also very happy to announce that Gopi, a longtime Yoga Warehouse teacher who has been living in Hawaii, will be joining the December TTC as an assistant teacher!
