The Yoga Development Course (YDC) offers three months of yoga in the deepest sense of the word, as a path to Liberation. Come and expand your understanding. Heal. Give yourself the spiritual nourishment you need. Challenge yourself to evolve.
This program, set in the Ashram’s pristine forest and lake during quiet winter, offers a balance of self-inquiry with group work in a community of like-minded people, a process that leads to new discoveries and purposeful change.
During the YDC, spiritual practices such as mantra, dream yoga and Light meditations help you access hidden levels of mind. And three months of reflection supports a process of clarification. Who are you now and how do you want to live your life? Which old patterns are limiting? Where have you created a helpful foundation?
Learn to understand the language of your personal symbolism through listening to your body, your dreams, your mind and your heart. This is an opportunity to see your life in a new perspective and to open to the richness of your own potential. Change that starts with yourself has a deep effect and will ripple out to touch others. Change yourself, change your world.
2019 marked the 50th anniversary of the Yoga Development Course (YDC). Swami Radha’s original vision is vibrantly alive at the core of this program while Swami Radhananda’s experiential learning approach updates the teaching process.
We also ofter an extended-stay program after the YDC for up to five months at no charge to support students in the work they have done during the YDC.
The YDC is the prerequisite for all of our Teacher Certification programs. If you want to do extensive work on yourself within the safety and beauty of a dedicated spiritual community, please contact the Program Advisor to begin the YDC application process.
