Inspired by a River

Let go and let Ganga!  
-Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji

Ganga Yoga is inspired by Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji of Parmarth Niketan Ashram. “In the Service of God and humanity” is Swamiji’s life mantra. Selflessly dedicated to the welfare of all, he leads numerous, global humanitarian service initiatives, encouraging us by example to be more like Ganga who “gives and gives without hesitation, limitation, or reservation.”

Ganga Seva

Ganga teaches us that the energy of giving is a limitless divine flow.  -Sadhvi Bhagawati

The Ganga Yoga Training has Seva at its heart. During our Training we will have the opportunity to contribute to one of the many projects of the Ganga Action Parivar and The Divine Shakti Foundation, led by Sadhvi Bhagwati Saraswati who will also grace us with nightly Satsang.

Gifts of Ganga 

Ganga is “heaven’s grace,” teaching us to give, to serve and to let the heart flow.

In addition to a beautiful, life-altering, all-inclusive experience, the Ganga Yoga Teacher Training will send you home with Ganga Yoga sequences to teach; divine meditations; a manual with Ganga Yoga philosophy, the Ganga Sutras, heart mantras and daily practices; and a song in your heart!

After the 21 day training, at-home requirements include (minimal) required reading, teaching 3 classes, 5 hours volunteering, and a follow-up Zoom review with course leader. 

Cultivate SOMA

Cultivate strength, clarity, and power: Connect with the graceful warrior to express your dynamic heart in a world that needs your fullest presence now.

LIVE THE FLOW

Learn to cultivate the essence of Yoga – embodying the power of life and the grace of exalted being to live the light, love and beauty we want for the world.

HOW is GYTT Unique?

  • Ganga Yoga Teacher Training (GYTT) is uniquely experiential: You experience Ganga, her grace and her powers, coming to embody this experience in tangible ways, so that you can “take Ganga home” and water the world with this abundant, unifying flow.
  • GYTT immerses you in the sacred land of Yoga, where you are exposed all day, every day to the wisdom of Yoga at its source.  GYTT includes daily Satsang with Sadhi Bhagawatiji, chanting with Mataji, and interactions with wise and devoted Ganga Yogis.
  • GYTT develops Ganga Consciousness, supporting environmental consciousness which converts to action. The Ganga Sutras you will learn give structure and inspiration to maintain Ganga Consciousness in an uninhibited, sacred flow.

Become The Flow

We are being called to our highest expression of self; called to participate in the birth of a Ganga way, where love leads, the heart is venerated, life, liberty and justice are for all.

The river is rising. Join us, and together let’s bring this sacred flow to all.

Thank you for the most wonderful experience of my life. It is hard for me to put into words, I could go on forever….
I enjoyed every single moment and all that we did together. I feel so blessed to have been able to share this experience with some wonderful people also. I could not have dreamed of a more perfect itinerary. We did so much, all tied together in such a special way with our yoga and spiritual growth all at the center of each day. You are a gifted teacher, and I feel so blessed to have met you and shared this journey. Your knowledge is unsurpassed, but the passion and spirit of love that you shared with all of us was the most special. You have touched my life in a way that I will always remember, I have learned so much, and I am so grateful.
