This online workshop will consist of a reading of selections of the best known and loved Bhakti Yoga stories and teachings from the Bhagavata Purana, arguably the most influential Bhakti text in ancient India.

This workshop will feature stories of bhaktas (practitioners of Bhakti Yoga) and of Bhagavan (Divine) as the recipient of bhakti. Constant reference will be made to the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the Bhagavata Purana.

You will have access to the video recordings for 8 weeks after the program ends, until May 30.

In addition, you will have access to the Ashram’s Live Hatha Yoga classes at 5 pm ET, recorded Ashram meditations, and inspiring talks with Sri Swami Satchidananda. You will also have access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.
