Blessed Selves,

Dear teachers, students, aspiring yogis…….

Warm greetings from the Kailash Colony and Dwarka Centres. We hope all enjoyed the Diwali celebrations. We’re glad to see you picking up your regular practice again.

For those of you still preparing to get started, now is a good time. You can keep the circulation going and keep warm through the winter as a result. Also kapalabhati will help to keep the lungs clear of the winter smog and free from colds and infections. The children can also have a good start with Kids camps being held at both the Centres at the end of the month.

We were happy to have hosted the organisation’s India Directors’ Meetings in Dwarka in November. As a bi-annual meeting of the directors of all our Centres and Ashrams in India with acharya, Swami Mahadevananda ji, it is a rare and special occasion when we all get together. Some of you may have had the opportunity to come for satsang with Swami Mahadevananda. We’re sure you were inspired. We have satsangs every weekend giving opportunity to appreciate life through bhakti yoga as well as to contemplate the ancient teachings and practice of Yoga. Special satsang programmes include Maa Purnananda Ji who will be continuing her discourses on Maharishi Patanjali’s Raja Yoga Sutras; and we’ll also be having carol singing around Christmas time, which is always fun and joyful.

Finally the most exciting news is probably the long awaited inauguration of the lift at the Dwarka Centre last Saturday. Although the students may not be so concerned……. the staff appreciate it a lot!

May Master and Swamiji’s blessings guide you in your steps on the yogic path.

Om Shanti

P.C. Kapoor and Kalyani Chaitanya
