BOOK OF THE MONTH FOR MAY
Swami Venkatesananda’s book on Yoga is a complete and in-depth presentation of Yoga.
A study of this book will give the keen Yoga student a full understanding of what Yoga
entails as well as the practical application. This book will help you to approach your
Yoga practice in a way that will bring meaning and fullness into your life.
Special price for the book “YOGA” during the month of May is R125.

“What is the meaning of life? Why are we born as human beings? Do we merely exist
until we die? What is my relation with you? Why do I suffer and why am I happy sometimes?
… These and similar questions occur to many of us at some time or other in our life…
The ‘normal’ man in the modern world is far too busy with the struggle for existence to find
time for such thoughts about life….”
Taken from the book of the month, “YOGA” by Swami Venkatesananda


Ananda Kutir Ashrama offers Integral Yoga, which combines all the Yogas:
Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Karma Yoga,
for the union of all the different aspects of an individual:
physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
