    Swami Asokananda, a monk since 1973, is one of Integral Yoga’s foremost teachers, known for his warmth, intelligence, and good humor. His teaching comes out of his own practice and experience, since he has absorbed the wisdom of his guru, Sri Swami Satchidananda, since the age of 19. While he enjoys sharing the practical wisdom of the Yogic philosophy (especially that of the great Indian scripture the Bhagavad Gita), he also loves his practice of Hatha Yoga and is one of our primary instructors for Intermediate and Advanced Hatha Yoga Teacher Training. In the past, he has served as the president of Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville® and Integral Yoga® International; he is currently the President of the New York Integral Yoga Institute.

Bhakti Yoga—The Path of Devotion: How to Bring our Heart into the Spiritual Life

The world needs heart, maybe more than ever. Bhakti Yoga teaches the art and science of reconnecting to our spiritual heart. The intellect is necessary for highlighting distinction and visions; it needs to be balanced with the heart, which highlights connection and non-separateness. No matter what religious or spiritual tradition you follow, Bhakti will make the journey sweeter, more enjoyable, and swifter. If practiced with sincerity, it can melt even the hardest and most stubborn ego.

In this workshop Swami Asokananda will present a slideshow exploring how to:

  • how to connect with and form a relationship with the Pure Consciousness at our core, beneath the waves of the mind
  • how to use this power to transform deeply ingrained mental patterns and conditioning
  • how to live without fear and leave this world in peace
