Santosha Yoga & Ayurveda Welcomes Swami Yatidharmananda

In September, Swami Yatidharmananda will travel from India to appear at Santosha Yoga & Ayurveda, in Delafield, to teach his unique practices of mindfulness, meditation and living a spiritual life of devotion.

The talk takes place from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 29, and from 12:30 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, September 30. Attendees will learn how to achieve absolute deep relaxation; how to abandon old restrictive habits and develop an “inner source” to anchor the self; how to achieve understanding of the self and separation of ego; how to achieve self-acceptance; how to release tension in the body and mind; how to improve sleep; and how to feel more joyful in everyday life.

Participants will discover the journey of the swami, who went from being an atheist and software developer to being a monk and founder of the Swami Chidananda Sevashram Monastery, a socio-spiritual organization dedicated to the life and teachings of Gurudev Swami Chidanandaji.

Yatidharmananda founded the monastery in 2012 after a series of spiritual turning points, integrating modern technology with Vedic concepts to create a monastery for the modern world. It is a place where people of all ages and backgrounds can live the principles and practices of ayurveda for the body, yoga for the mind, and Vedanta for the soul. Yatidharmananda has since appeared at spiritual conventions worldwide and conducts workshops on relaxation and meditation. He also sings kirtan and shares stories of his transformation.

Cost: Donations to Chidananda Sevashram Monastery appreciated. Location: W307 N1497 Golf Rd., Delafield. For more information, call 262-271-4972 or visit
