Program Details

For all levels, including beginners.

Most of us will never be monks or nuns. While longing for a rich spiritual and interior life, we will live out our lives in the context of work, family, financial concerns, and the challenges of aging. Is there a way to use the difficulties, conflicts, and struggles of daily life to cultivate an inner life of spirit?

The Bhagavad Gita, the Hindu devotional work that literally translates as “Song of God,” is considered one of the world’s greatest teachings on this topic and answers a resounding “Yes” to that question. In this workshop, we explore karma yoga, the yoga of action, learning to act in the world in such a way that God becomes “the Doer” of our deeds. Each day includes at least an hour and a half of asana practice in addition to lecture, discussion, and other exercises aimed at allowing us to experience how life itself is a profound spiritual practice.

Join the founder of the Institute for Extraordinary Living for an exploration into the living tradition of yoga.
