Explore the Bhagavad Gita: Yoga Philosophy and Psychology with Swami Asokananda
Tuesday, February 5–26 • 7:00–8:15 p.m.
Integral Yoga New York’s president Swami Asokananda shares insights based on his lifelong study of one of Yoga’s most sacred texts. The Bhagavad Gita offers guidance for the soul struggling to know itself and its place in the world. Come and read the Gita, and discuss how to deepen your spiritual knowledge by drawing on its teachings in everyday life. May be attended on a drop-in basis with no preregistration.
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.
