Spiritual Enrichment Program Features Yoga Vedanta

Niloofer Giri

Niloofer Giri

Niloofer Giri, a teacher of vedanta from The Holistic Center of Yoga and Vedanta, in Maharashtra, India, will communicate the universal message of vedanta in a series of free, easy-to-understand classes from 7 to 8:30 p.m., September 7 through 9, and from 6 to 7:30 p.m., September 10 and 11, at the Jain Temple Lecture Hall of the Hindu Temple of Wisconsin. Vedanta is one of the six orthodox schools of Indian philosophy.

While the physical, mental and spiritual benefits of yoga are well known to many Westerners, the subject of vedanta is relatively obscure. This class series is designed to provide a rare opportunity for insight into vedanta from a well-respected teacher. Giri has studied under Swami Dayananda Saraswati, of Arsha Vidya Gurukulam. She holds degrees in psychology and philosophy, and is an associate of the Trinity College of Music, in London, as a pianist.

Location: W243N4063 Pewaukee Rd., Pewaukee. For more information, call 414-309-9690, email or visit
