EMOTIONS AND MENTAL STEADINESS
We all know there is no greater blessing than a steady and peaceful mind. Yet, we are all troubled at times by unwanted emotions like desire, dislike, and delusion. These are related to a web of emotions like love, compassion, fear etc. This 5-day program will focus on understanding and dealing with these emotions through Yogic Mindfulness techniques.
“The mind is like a river. The thoughts are like the various droplets of water. We are submerged in that water. Stay on the bank and watch your mind.” AG MOHAN

ABOUT AG MOHAN & INDRA MOHAN
A. G. Mohan was a personal student of Sri T. Krishnamacharya from 1971 to 1989. He was also the convener of Krishnamacharya’s centenary celebrations in 1988. He is the author of several books, including Yoga for Body, Breath, and Mind (1993), Yoga Therapy (2004), Krishnamacharya: His Life and Teachings (2010), Yoga Reminder (2015), and the translator of the important classical yoga text, the Yoga Yajnavalkya (2013, 2nd ed.).
The details of his studies are described by Krishnamacharya himself in his personal foreword to Mohan’s first book.
One of the most senior yoga masters alive now, and a direct links to the authentic yoga traditions, A. G. Mohan continues to study, practice, and teach.
Indra Mohan has been practicing and teaching yoga for more than three decades now. She is one of the few people who received a post-graduate diploma in yoga from Krishnamacharya. Known for her serene demeanor, she is a source of support and wisdom to her many personal students.
Health, happiness and mental tranquillity are goals that we each have in common. This is the state of Sattva and Svastha. Yet, our experience of this state is often elusive. The first step to changing this is to first understand that it is our past actions and thinking that is affecting our present state. Our experiences in life and our reaction to these experiences, have created patterns of action and thinking that run on auto pilot. These patterns are constantly modified – strengthened or weakened – by our senses of action, senses of knowledge, and our mind – our thoughts and feelings themselves.
However, by consciously introducing new patterns of actions and thinking, we can bring about positive transformation in our physical and mental well-being and move toward living with contentment and tranquillity – happiness. The practice of Yogic Mindfulness gives us the means to bring about this change and with right knowledge and practice we gain more clarity and enthusiasm to help us on our paths.
