Yoga in Action
The next time you come to Ananda for courses that last at least five days (except for intensive courses), sign up for the option Yoga in Action and get a taste of community service. When we learn to serve with the right attitude, this is a spiritual practice and is called Karma Yoga. The daily practise of Karma Yoga is a joyful and practical spiritual discipline that will benefit every aspect of your life.
In Yoga in Action, you will get a taste of this wonderful aspect of our life here at Ananda. In addition to the yoga and meditation sessions and the morning lesson, you will participate with other guests in a period of service in some area of the community. If you like the experience, you can extend your stay, or come back again and try one of the other options, such as the Community Living Programs.
We invite you to participate in Yoga in Action and learn how to put this aspect of the spiritual life into daily practise.
Yoga in Action: Level 1 & 2
At Ananda, there are two levels of the Yoga in Action option; Level 1 and Level 2. With Level 1, you will serve for a period of one and a half hours. With Level 2, you will serve for a period of three hours, split into two periods of daily service.
You can choose the option, Yoga in Action Level 1, together with any five-day program you wish to attend. You can continue with this option as long as you wish. Your service project might change each day. This experience gives you a chance to contribute to the beautiful atmosphere of Ananda.
Yoga in Action Level 2 is only available if you have had prior experience of the Yoga in Action Level 1 option, or any of the Community Living Programs.
Please note that while attending certain courses at Ananda it is not possible to take the option Yoga in Action. Please speak to our office reception for further details of these courses.
How to Register for This Program
