The Ashram Sangha

The Ashram Sangha is our online community; a space where those who feel a connection with the unique teachings and energies of the Ashram can receive ongoing input and support from us in the comfort of their own homes. It's our way of making the teachings and spiritual life of the Ashram as accessible as possible to anyone anywhere in the world.

The Ashram Sangha - its Purpose

The Ashram Sangha is for those practitioners who have some previous experience of yoga or meditation and feel a calling to go deeper, beyond the weekly yoga class model. The purpose of the Sangha is threefold:

  • Deepening - to help deepen one's experience of yoga/ meditation practice and subsequent experiential understanding. Western yoga classes can often share only the surface aspects of yoga practice, whereas the Ashram teachings focus on the true jewels of yoga, including meditation, yoga nidra, mudra, bandha, mantra, yoga in daily life, and intuitive enquiry into what lies beyond the known paradigms of our life.
  • Renewal - our practice can become stale at times, losing its zest, and the Sangha offers a way of renewing our practice and core aspirations through the regular taught sessions and support. This applies to yoga teachers also. In addition, the Sangha can help renew or refresh our energies as an antidote to the variable challenges of daily life.
  • Belonging - to provide a way of connecting and supporting like-minded practitioners walking a similar inner path to you. Western life can often feel isolated, and spiritual life can feel like swimming against the prevailing current. The Sangha offers connection with others who are also called, like you, to the practice, path and mystery of yoga.

Some of the comments we've received so far from participants of the Sangha include:

"As a newcomer to the Sangha, I appreciate feeling included and welcome and really value all the learning and input"

"Thank you for the beautiful practices and teachings…I am so grateful for this online Sangha"

"I’m enjoying all the practices in the sangha - it’s such a joy to be able to tap into the ashram energies from so far away!"

Weekly Practice Sessions

1-Hour Live Practice Sessions

Each week we share a live Zoom class, delivered by our highly experienced Ashram teachers, plus periodic experienced guest teachers, for you to tune into wherever you are in the world.

These classes will rotate through a different focus each week, including asana, pranayama, meditation, chanting, yoga nidra, and more.

They will take place on Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm until 8.30pm U.K. time.

Each session will be recorded and available for 4 weeks, so you can enjoy them multiple times or watch the replays if you can't make a particular live session. An audio file will be available for you to download and keep. 

Monthly Mini-Retreats

3-Hour Live Practice Sessions

Each month we offer a 3-hour deep-dive into a particular aspect of yoga, advaita or tantra, delivered via Zoom. They will comprise a mixture of teaching and practice sessions. Our hope is that these monthly live courses will:

• Allow you to deepen your knowledge of yoga and expand your repertoire of practices month by month

• Provide a regular window where you can devote a whole morning each month to your practice - like a mini monthly retreat within the comfort of your own home.

We believe that the cumulative effect of incorporating these monthly practice days into the larger rhythm of your life over a period of time will yield many valuable benefits.

These sessions will take place on Sunday mornings at 9.30am-12.30pm U.K. time, and will be recorded so you can watch the replays for up to 4 weeks after the event, so you never have to miss out if they clash with something else you have on. Audio recordings will also be available for you to download during that period, so you can have lifetime access. 

Chanting & Meditation 

Attune To The Ashram's Rhythms

Join in with the Ashram's rhythm of daily and weekly practices, wherever you are in the world!

The core practices we would like to invite you to join us in are our daily chanting and meditation sessions, which take place every morning from 7.30 to 8.15am, and our weekly Mahamrityunjaya Mantra practice, which takes place every Tuesday evening at 8pm.

We have created a Chanting Library, so you can choose a mantra that resonates with you, to practice either at 7.30 in the morning before your meditation, or at a time that suits you best. Each week, you will also receive a downloadable meditation for the week ahead, plus invitations to tune into the Tuesday Mrityunjaya chanting.
