MM Swami Vivekpuri visits Vancouver, 2-7 December 2015

Once again British Columbians had an opportunity to practice yoga with master teacher Mahamandaleshwar Swami Vivekpuriji, during his visit to Vancouver on his fourth North American tour.

Swami Vivekpuriji arrived on December 2 and started his program with a consultation with the local Yoga in Daily Life teachers, continuing late into the night. Next day everyone had a chance to deepen their yoga practice at an evening workshop at the Yoga in Daily Life Center in Vancouver.

On December 4 we went to the Eaglenest Sanctuary, a retreat center situated near beautiful Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island, where we were joined by the local Yoga in Daily Life members and students.

The all-day yoga program during the retreat was comprehensive, but very relaxing at the same time. Delicious homemade organic vegetarian food provided for every meal made our stay even more enjoyable. Being deep in the forest without even cellphone connection helped us to focus on our sadhana.

Swami Vivekpuri spent every minute between programs with the participants, tirelessly answering questions.

It was a great experience for everyone and we returned home rejuvenated, inspired, and excited to put into use everything we had learned.

Swami Vivekpuriji's visit finished on Sunday, December 6 with an evening Satsang. Early Monday morning he continued his North American journey.
