The Hatha Yoga Intensive is a program devised by Swami Vishnudevananda based on his own hatha yoga sadhana in the Himalayas. He said that six months of this intensive practice gave him the energy to carry out his mission of spreading the teachings of yoga in the West for next 40 years. The course is based on individual self-practice divided into three sessions per day. The emphasis is on intense pranayama and asana. Students work towards 8 hours of hatha yoga per day, balanced by the study of scriptures. For details go here.

Ananda! Once in a while we get this feeling. But its for a very little time. What humans would like to do is to extend it – make it infinite. And that infinite ecstasy is Krishna. Ananda is THE final abode. So my idea is to express him as joy personified. The celebration. He enjoys life despite the fact that he is always in trouble!” – Keshav
