Date & Time
9:30 am - 5:30 pm
Most of us have enough stress in our lives. Let’s not make meditation one more difficult thing to do.
During this workshop, we will explore these questions:
- Is there a more effective way to practice, than trying to stop the thoughts?
- Can the practice help me to understand and deepen the connection to myself?
- Can I keep my practice enjoyable and inspiring, year in and year out?
Swami Asokananda will introduce simple approaches to meditation that have kept his practice interesting, meaningful, and rejuvenating for more than 45 years.

New York Open Center
Swami Asokananda, a monk since 1973, president of the New York Integral Yoga Institute, and one of its foremost instructors, is known for his warmth, intelligence, and good humor. His teaching comes out of his own practice and experience, since the age of 19, when he absorbed the wisdom of his guru, Sri Swami Satchidananda. While he enjoys sharing the practical wisdom of the Yogic philosophy (especially that of the great Indian scripture the Bhagavad Gita), he also loves his practice of Hatha Yoga, and is one of the primary instructors for intermediate and advanced Hatha Yoga Teacher Training. In the past, Swami Asokananda has served as the president of Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville® and Integral Yoga® International.
