Description

Author John Ittner, Foreward by Dr. David Frawley

157 pages

"A clear-eyed portrait of ashram life that also serves as an excellent introduction to yoga for Westerners." -Alan Reder, contributing editor to Yoga Journal and co-author of The Whole Parenting Guide

"I sincerely hope that this book will help many practitioners in finding their life's purpose of enjoying and sharing unconditional love." -Shyam Mehta, co-author of Yoga: The Iyengar Way

The powerful combination of exercising both mind and body in the quest for spiritual enlightenment is integral to Hindu spiritual life, and the ashram is where it takes place. This guide introduces you to the typical ashram schedule as experienced in three different communities: India, New York, and the Bahamas to show you what you can expect from the yoga, meditation, worship, and study that define an ashram retreat.  

Whether you're simply curious about this millennia-old spiritual practice, or interested in experiencing it firsthand, this is the ideal handbook to get you started, no matter what your faith tradition.

A helpful glossary of terms, a list of resources for further reading, and a directory to yoga ashrams in North America and elsewhere will enable you to set up your own visit and explore the spiritual benefits of yoga ashram life for yourself.  

 

Note: Book has slight marking on bottom outer part of book.
