Living Yoga Training

Live the life of a yogi for 28 days in spiritual community

The Living Yoga Training (LYT) program helps you establish or deepen your practice in the supportive Ashram environment. You will be guided by instructors who have devoted their lives to learning and imparting the wisdom of Yoga as taught by Sri Swami Satchidananda, the founder of Integral Yoga and one of the most revered Yoga masters of our time.

If you are pursuing spiritual growth, this program can be a life-transforming experience adding significantly to your ability to maintain a healthy, happy, balanced life.

The LYT program combines spiritual studies, Hatha Yoga, meditation, and selfless service.
