The Yoga Development Course (YDC) offers yoga in the deepest sense of the word, a path leading to liberation.
2021 will be a special year for the Yoga Development Course. To ensure your safety, we are limiting the intake for the course to comply with BC coronavirus requirements. Each person will prepare for the course by participating in a two-week guided private retreat with reading materials. This will also act as a quarantine period, prior to the launch of the classes and workshops from January 18. The YDC includes morning Hatha Yoga classes, daily workshops and evening satsangs in the Temple of Light.
Come and expand your understanding. Heal. The program, set in the Ashram’s pristine forest and lake during the quiet winter, offers a balance of self-inquiry and group work in community, a process that leads to new discoveries and purposeful change.
