A Healthy Yogic Lifestyle
Jan 19 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
A Healthy Yogic Lifestyle @ Ananda Dallas Meditation and Yoga Center

How do we define health, is it the same for everyone? Is health simply a matter of weight or is there more to it. What does it mean to be healthy and why should we take steps toward health and what are those steps?

In this meaningful 4 hour seminar I will share with you the essential 7 Pillars of Health. As an in-depth, integrated approach, we will uncover our unique Ayurvedic Constitutions and learn how to eat right for them. We will learn how to apply taste therapy, and the law of opposites. We will explore a deeper understanding of the relationship between agni and ama as well as proper food combining. We will also review Ayurvedic Rejuvenation and Cleansing techniques.

Together we will profoundly explore mindful eating practices and learn how to take “A Sacred Pause.” We will study the importance of using the breath for health (pranayama), good sleep hygiene (nidra), and proper exercise (vyayama); all of which reduce stress, drastically lowering the effects of inflammation which is now considered by most health experts to be the single greatest contributor to disease.
When 80% of Americans’ doctor visits are for chronic health care challenges caused by diet, lifestyle, and stress, is there something we can do to take control of our health futures? Who is responsible for our health?

During this unique discussion, I will share with you valid and practical healthcare principles, tools and techniques designed for your individual body, mind, lifestyle, and temperament.

Namaste, Michael

Chanting and Harmonium Workshop
Apr 7 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Chanting and Harmonium Workshop @ Ananda Dallas Meditation Center | Addison | Texas | United States

Yogananda said, “chanting is half the battle”. For many of us it more than half the battle!Learn to use the harmonium and win the battle and open your heart.

Often chanting is a technique that we don’t fully appreciate until we start our own personal practice of chanting. Hard to do if you do not get some basic instruction on an instrument that typically accompanies chanting. The harmonium is the traditional chanting instrument of yogis.

In this class, we will go over the basics of chanting, become familiar with the harmonium, as well as learn two simple chants. It is a hands-on workshop. If you have a harmonium, please bring it. We will have a number of harmoniums on hand to practice with. If you have already come to a previous workshop, we will take you the next step!

Class size is limited to 5 people.

Where’s My Owner’s Manual?! Living Life with Three Bodies
May 11 @ 10:30 am – 5:30 pm
Where’s My Owner’s Manual?! Living Life with Three Bodies @ Ananda Dallas Yoga and Meditation Center

This workshop is offered as an experiential exploration of truths about living a dynamic life in authentic happiness.

Authentic happiness is not that which arises from outward rewards or desires being met, but instead one that arises from being present with our highest nature, unconditioned by outward circumstance. Imagine understanding how to better work with the human condition.

Did you know that there IS an owner’s manual?! It is the path of Yoga – not simply asana practice, but the all-encompassing path of royal (raja) yoga. In this series we will explore the wisdom and guidance that the yoga Master, Paramhansa Yogananda, brought to the West. Living a life with three bodies! This sounds rather supernatural. But it is nothing of the sort. We have each come into this world with three bodies; a causal, an astral body and a physical body. The physical body gets a lot of attention, but living a life identified with the physical body results in continual relapses of misery and perpetual suffering. By better understanding the nature of our creation, we can learn how to work with all three bodies and ultimately retrace our steps back to our source: the journey of Self-realization. 

In this all-day workshop, we will explore the three bodies with an emphasis on the aspects of the astral body (responsible for all perception and action in this world) and the link between the body and “mind.” We will explore how the practices of yoga-asana, energization exercises (Yogananda’s unique contribution to the path of yoga) and the meditation technique of Hong Sau relate to the three bodies. This workshop will be relaxed and deeply interactive. Introspective exercises will relate the teachings to your personal life and inspire conversation and sharing. 

Whether you are a disciple of Yogananda and a practitioner of his techniques, or whether you are simply curious about what Yogananda contributed to the yogic science, this workshop will both inform and inspire. This will be an experiential class and is open to any sincere seeker.

Discipleship Explored
Jul 14 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Discipleship Explored @ Ananda Dallas

We have a divine potential within us-we are the perfect soul. So it is part of the Divine Law to show us that which we can become. That is the goal of the guru…
                                     Swami Kriyananda

We are living in an age where the thought of discipleship is not pleasing to most people…does everyone need a guru? How can you recognize your own guru? What does it mean to be a disciple? What is the meaning of discipleship?

Stemming from Latin origins, the word disciple relates to “pupil or student” but it comes from the roots “to learn” and “to take hold of or grasp”. In this two class series, we will explore how discipleship relates to the spiritual journey and the role of teachers and teachings.

No matter what path you choose, this class will give participants a clear understanding of the concept of discipleship and what it entails. At the end students will also be given the opportunity to consider taking discipleship for the path of Kriya Yoga. Discipleship is a prerequisite and necessary step toward Kriya initiation.

$30 for two classes
required text: Handbook on Discipleship by Swami Kriyananda
prerequisite class for aspiring Kriya Yoga initiates
