Escorted trip to Yasodhara Ashram

Jane Aldiss is putting together an escorted trip to the Ashram for this October to attend the 10 Days of Yoga programme described here:

     10 Days of Yoga

A Journey of Self-Discovery and Renewal

10-days-425px

Give yourself ten days to expand your understanding of who you are and who you want to be — ten days reprieve from stress in a safe and nurturing place of reflection. For students of all levels, this course offers practices that support your personal and spiritual development. Instruction is given in a variety of traditional yoga and meditation practices such as mantra and visualization combined with in-depth self-development courses such as Life Seals, Dream Yoga and the Hidden Language of Hatha Yoga.

You will leave with tools to create more meaning, joy and relaxation in your life and with more trust in your ability to live a balanced life.

Here’s the link: http://www.yasodhara.org/study/10-days-of-yoga/
This has video testimonials, and a lot more information there that will help to give you a flavour of the course and staying at Yasodhara Ashram.

 

Cost: Two people attending together get a 15% discount, and the opportunity to stay on for a week at no extra cost, we will pair you up as ‘friends’ to get this benefit. As a participant in the 10 Days of Yoga, you can stay on at no cost for up to the next seven consecutive days to practice Karma Yoga.

When:  Leaving from London on or around Sunday the 6th October 2019. This will give you three days to settle in before the the course starts.

Course dates: Thursday 10 to Sunday 20th October 2019

The earliest leaving date after the course is the morning of 21st, but we wholeheartedly recommend that you give yourself the gift of staying on for the next 7 days to assimilate the course and take the time to absorb what you’ve learned in the supportive and nourishing environment of the ashram.
Jane’s intention is to stay on at the ashram for an extended period, so your onward travel would be up to you. Once you’ve done the amazing journey there, you’ll know how easy it is to get back and go onwards to your chosen destination.

 

Booking flights: From about June onwards, and she will be in touch once she has found something that looks like a good deal. She assures us very experienced in finding cheaper flights than the norm, so it’s worth waiting for her booking unless you’re intending to go somewhere first and then join us at the ashram for the course.

Jane is very happy to share any information that you may require and may find helpful, so please do just ask.

 

 

This is going to be a very exciting adventure! And I look forward to journeying with you literally and metaphorically. Jane
