Two Swamis Satsang with Swamis Asokananda and Chidananda
Saturday, May 27 • 5:30–6:30 p.m.
The beloved Integral Yoga monks Swami Asokananda and Swami Chidananda bring together their considerable experiences to offer insights gleaned from decades on the spiritual path. Bring your questions and an open mind and heart to what promises to be an enjoyable and enlightening evening with two direct and senior disciples of IYI’s founder, Sri Swami Satchidananda.
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.
Swami Chidananda is a monastic and a longtime disciple of Sri Swami Satchidananda and has managed the finances for Integral Yoga’s ashrams, institutes, and teaching centers for decades. He teaches Hatha Yoga and leads study groups on Yoga and Buddhist teachings and philosophy. Swami Chidananda also conducts spiritual pilgrimages to India and Nepal.
