The Doctor From India

Sunday July 1, film at 2pm

Visit the Yoga Warehouse table in the cinema courtyard from 1-2!

Join us for an inspiring and uplifting Sunday matinee, a  one-time-only showing at the lovely Savor Cinema (formerly known as Cinema Paradiso), just a few blocks from the Yoga Warehouse.

The Doctor From India is a meditative and immersive portrait of the life and work of Dr. Vasant Lad, the holistic health pioneer who first brought the ancient medical practice of ayurveda from India to the west in the late 1970s. It tells the beautiful and inspiring story of a man who for decades has been quietly at the center of a revolutionary movement to change the way we care for our bodies and our spirits.

Directed by Jeremy Frindel (One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das), the film features Deepak Chopra, Robert Svoboda, David Frawley, and Claudia Welch.

The Yoga Warehouse is helping to sponsor this event and will have a table in the theater’s courtyard to promote yoga and ayurveda from 1-2pm. You can park for free in the parking garage next to the cinema.

The Advanced Yoga Teachers’ Training Course allows graduates of the Sivananda Yoga Teachers’ Training Course to deepen their spiritual practice and their study of hatha yoga, vedanta philosophy, raja yoga, anatomy and Sanskrit.

During this intensive course the student experiences the purifying and transformative power of a four-week immersion into advanced yogic practices. This unique and informative training will help you dive deeper into the path of meditation, focusing on the more subtle aspects of yoga. The course is taught by senior disciples of Swami Vishnudevananda and is considered to be the next step after the 200-hour Yoga Teachers’ Training Course. It fulfills the requirements for the Yoga Alliance RYT-500 certification.

YOGA AND RELATIONSHIPS with Mohini and Shyam
at Sivananda Ashram Yoga Ranch, Catskill Mountains, NY
Friday July 20-Sunday July 22

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 while enjoying morning and evening meditation as well as special asana classes. Spend the weekend amid the beautiful natural surroundings and daily spiritual rhythm of the ashram, preparing physically, mentally, and spiritually for a life of companionship based in love rather than romance or need.

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.
