Those who attended last year’s workshop and wish to continue on the path, as well as those who wish to attend for the first time are all equally welcomed.

Teaching the various aspects of yoga throughout the world, Pandit Priyadarsan is trying to convey his passion for yoga by his very personal style acquired during his years of study in India. His approach is very warm and focused on individuals, with special attention to each person. He wishes to get as many people as possible to benefit from the many merits of yoga. Pierre is certified as Yoga Acharya by the Fédération Francophone de Yoga and holds the ERYT-500 recognition by Yoga Alliance.

Fulfilling the purpose of our Life
We cordially invite you to Swami Nitya Muktananda Saraswati’s* Workshop,
"Fulfilling the purpose of our Life" that will take place at our premises on Tuesday 22nd, Wednesday 23rd, Thursday 24th of May 2018, from 18:00 to 21:00. On Friday the 25th we will meet from 18:00 to 20:00 for questions, ideas and the pleasure of exchanging.

"Every one of us, at one time or other asks the question: why we are born, why we are alive, what have we to do in this life? These basic human questions can only be answered with self-reflection. Societies and Religions have their answers; the Indian tradition has found their answers; but to find our own answer is becoming very important.
Yoga is a science that uses inner research to find answers. So we will reflect, search, meditate... to come closer to our own answer of how to fulfil our Life."

For those who love meditation
On the Full Moon days (see below), you are invited to sit in meditation from 22:00-23:00 in our premises or wherever you are, in your home or with friends. Total beginners and longtime practitioners, non-initiates and initiates are welcome. If you cannot sit for the entire hour, sit as long as you are able; as Swami Veda has said, "Let the quietness of the mind continue even after you rise..."

Swami Veda Bharati has written:

Yoga Philosophy views the mind as Universal field; its waves passing through us and becoming our individual minds. This Universal mind is a radiant force and is also known as a Universal Guru within.

When all sit together at the same time even in different parts of the world, they connect to the Universal Guru mind and generate a strong field, like so many magnets being joined together and forming a much stronger magnet; the strength of each then equals the combined strength of all.

Thus it is when we join together in meditation, and together enter the Guru-mind's Field. On certain days of the year the Wave of Beauty and the Wave of Bliss flows very strong. These are the sacred days.

Swami Ritavan Bharati has said: "The full moon meditations are an opportunity for us to come together in connecting with the universal mind-field bringing unity, harmony, peace and love. Go into your silence; exhale-release, inhale-accept, forgive & fulfill, with purified heart and mind receive the blessings of the Lineage."

For more information:

At 20:00 we will read inspiring texts by Swami Rama, Swami Veda Bharati and Constantin Foteinas, discussion will follow. We conclude the meeting with meditation from 22:00 to 23:00, under the blessings of the lineage and after the invitation of Swami Ritavan. It is a powerful universal meditation that unites many decades of thousand people who invoke peace for the whole world. If we know of your interest we will send a reminder.
If you cannot come to our center, you can meditate at the same time at your home. In that case, if you need it, we can inform you about your posture, relaxation and breathing.
