Yoga Lifestyle Program (2 weeks to 6 months)
Karma Yoga is the practice of yoga in everyday action and is a foundational practice at Anahata. We participate fully in the activities of daily life, but with the attitudes of curiosity, service, and higher awareness.
Participating in the Yoga Lifestyle Program at Anahata provides the opportunity for personal and spiritual growth. This immersion into a yogic lifestyle provides the foundation for Self- transformation through the practice of mindfulness in action.
You will gain perspective on your personality, the ability to witness your way of interacting with the world, and the tools to transform the way you approach everyday life. You will leave here with practical skills and mindfulness tools, more resilience to stress, a deeper knowledge of Self, and the ability to navigate the challenges of life with presence.
