Daily Yoga Classes
benefits of Yoga are best achieved when the asanas (postures)
are practiced once a day. Developing “perfect postures”
as taught by Sri Swami Satchidananda will lead to a healthful
and blissful life.
To this end, the IYI has four daily classes, Hatha I for
beginners, and Hatha II for those who have mastered the
Hatha I asanas. Both classes are given Monday-Friday at
6:30AM and 6:30PM.
Fees for each of these walk-in continuation classes is Rs.
50. A discounted 20-class card costs Rs. 500 and may be
used at any of the classes within a 2 months period.
On occasion there is a work program in exchange for classes.
Energy is retained and directed inward during meditation,
unlike exercise where energy is dispersed and projected
outward. The body and mind are revitalized and relaxed during
these silent periods, which in turn leads to peace and stability.
The IYI offers weekday half-hour meditation periods open
to the public at 6:00AM and 8:00PM. Everyone is encouraged
to partake of this sacred time. There is also a 5:00AM hour
long meditation which can be joined with advance notice.
