Yoga intensives are offered every season, either as
a one-day program at the Integral Yoga Institute,
or as three-day program at a peaceful facility outside
of the city.
Based on the teachings of Sri Swami Satchidanandaji,
the daily schedule includes meditation, Hatha Yoga,
chanting, deep relaxation, pranayama, and spiritual
discourse. The classes are conducted at graduated
levels so the experienced students are challenged;
meanwhile the less experienced students receive detailed
instructions and personal attention in separate classes.
Instructions will be in a mixture of Tamil and English.
With the exception of the teachers, complete silence
will be maintained for each day from 9:00PM to 9:00AM.
As the meditation, breathing practices, postures and
silence take their effect, the mind and body relax
and stress vanishes. In that relaxation, the mind
becomes very quiet, and the inner Peace flowers.
