Dear friend,

Change. Things will change. People will change. We will change.

Are you buffeted by the changes, or are you driving them? Take charge of your goals, so you can mobilize your energies in the directions you really want. If you don’t know where you are headed, you won’t get there.

Change your mind. Change your brain. Quiet the primitive parts of your brain, grow the pre-frontal lobes and open up your potential. See the link below to watch Dr. Peter Van Houten’s free talk about fulfilling your potential.

Learn how to do it better. Select one of the classes coming up. Read below the Inspiration from Swami Kriyananda, who did more in one lifetime than several people put together. Join one of the Ananda Travels journeys to deeply reorient yourself.

Live your life. Fulfill your potential. Take charge of the change.

Blessings along your path,

Nayaswami Nityananda

Ananda School of Yoga and Meditation
Restorative Ananda Yoga® Teacher Training
CEU Wednesday, December 5 – Saturday, December 8

Restorative yoga is a popular way for beginning through advanced yoga students to experience true relaxation - often the most difficult skill to master.

"The restorative training really helped me rediscover my voice and confidence in my teaching ability and I feel completely prepared and re-inspired to serve my students."
