Finding purpose in life with yoga | Ashram de Yoga Sivananda | Yoga | France

Yoga philosophy aims at the realisation of unity. It teaches us to focus on the essential and to become conscious of our essence. It considers life as a sacred journey which goes from limitation to freedom, from darkness to light and from death to immortality. We invite you to a fascinating exploration of the different steps of this journey towards the inner self.

Topics covered:

  • The four goals of life according to yoga philosopy
  • Yamas and niyamas: tools for a strong and positive mind
  • Discernment: a key to understand the true meaning of life
  • Cultivating one’s inner life to overcome restlessness and inertia
  • Developing self-confidence and trust in life
  • Transforming day to day: establishing a daily routine for the spiritual practice

With certificate of participation.

  • 6am: Satsang (group meditation, kirtan and mantra chanting, short lecture)
