What does Yasodhara mean?
Yasodhara was the wife of the Buddha and Yasodha was the name of Krishna’s mother. Swami Radha decided to name her Ashram ‘Yasodhara’ in recognition of the importance of the feminine principle in spiritual life.
What connects your teachers to Yasodhara Ashram?
All Yasodhara teachers have been trained at Yasodhara Ashram and renew their training every three years. We represent the Ashram in our local communities.
How is Yasodhara Yoga unique?
Yasodhara Yoga is not just Hatha Yoga, or physical yoga. It is a holistic yoga that draws on many yogic practices – including mantra, meditation and personal reflection – and integrates these practices with personal development techniques. The emphasis is on self-discovery, character building and the spiritual dimensions of yoga.
What can I expect from a Yasodhara Yoga centre?
All Yasodhara Yoga centres are unique! Some centres have been operating in their communities for over 20 years; some centres are in private homes and others run classes out of yoga studios or community centres. All teachers are welcoming, and classes can be attended by students of all levels or experience.
