The Chopra Center for Wellbeing teaches a consciousness- based yoga program that integrates 5,000-year-old Vedic wisdom and the yogic interpretations of Deepak Chopra, David Simon, and Claire Diab. We guide students to experience body- centered restful awareness, which in turn helps them find the perfect way to higher states of consciousness on and off the mat. The Chopra Center offers daily yoga classes as well as several inspiring four-day Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga Retreats that include Primordial Sound Meditation and your personal mantra, breath and energy work (pranayama), the healing practices of Ayurveda, Sanskrit and mantra lessons, and delicious Ayurvedic lunches prepared from the Chopra Center Cookbook. This year we will have yoga retreats at The Crossings, Austin, Texas, March 6-9, 2008; and La Costa Resort and Spa, Carlsbad, CA, September 4-7, 2008. For those who want to share the wisdom of yoga with those in their own community, the Chopra Center also offers the Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga Teacher Certification Program. This is a Yoga Alliance 200-hour compliant program and includes Primordial Sound Meditation, pranayama, Yoga Sutra instruction, asana development, Sanskrit sessions, chanting, anatomy classes, and mantra study.
