*Daily Activities

The most convenient place to see our daily update activities is at the pinned post as the top of the Abhyasa Ashram Satsang group on Facebook, a public group. You can also see the calendar at Meetup.com. We mostly have online activities. Activities are also announced through the newsletter

In the tradition of the Himalayan masters, Yoga is seen as a systematic process wherein we systematically deal with all levels of our being, such that body and breath practices are an integral part of, and are intended to lead to meditation. Therefore our schedule of daily practice times is designed so that you have time for Asanas/Postures and Pranayama/Breath before and leading into meditation. (See also the Timer for pacing these practices.)

Following is my typical personal typical daily schedule. Set up your own daily schedule in a way that works for you.
