meditation

Sri Janani Yoga is honored to host instructors of The IAM®—Integrated Amrita Meditation Technique®–a powerful tool for our spiritual growth. This meditation acts on a very subtle level, eliminating our negative tendencies, slowly but surely, and gives obvious practical results very fast. When practiced regularly, we see all aspects of our lives improve over time. Since meditation is an essential part of any yoga practice, we will be offering even more meditation classes in the future.


Meditation increases your vitality and strengthens your intelligence; your beauty is enhanced; your mental clarity and health improve. You acquire the patience and fortitude to face any problem in life. So, meditate! Only through meditation will you find the treasure you are seeking.
— Amma

archana

Home-Meditation_89544902.jpg

Archana is a puja or practice that brings prosperity to the family and peace to the world. We begin with chanting the 108 Names of Mata Amritanandamayi or Amma as she is known, then the Sri Lalita Sahasranama, the 1000 Names of Divine Mother.

With the chanting of Lalita Sahasranama the atmosphere gets purified, and the energy in every nerve of our body will be awakended. You do not need to know the chants to receive the benefits. 

After the puja we will meditate.

You are welcome to come and go as you need to.

 Tuesdays 7:15-8:15pm

Thursdays 6:30-7:30am

 Donation accepted. If a check please make payable to MA Center, a 501C3 non profit organization.

Meditation helps to reduce stress and anxiety, and results in increased energy, creativity, productivity and more. This 2-Day Course to learn the IAM-Integrated Amrita Meditation Technique® is a wonderful opportunity to experience a powerful meditation technique created by an internationally recognized humanitarian and spiritual teacher (Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, widely-known as “Amma”).

This is the same course offered at Amma’s retreats for the past 12 years and is for those deeply interested in spiritual practice. (A shorter, 3-hour streamlined IAM®-20 Course is offered at another time.)

The Course includes Amma’s spiritual teachings on meditation and practical guidance for a worry-free life. You will learn a 35-minute practice integrating several modalities focusing on movement, breath, sound and light. 

You must attend BOTH days to complete the 2-Day Course.

IAM®-35 refresher course

If you have already taken the IAM-35 Course you are eligible to attend the IAM-35 Refresher Course, offered concurrently at the same location.

If you’ve become irregular with your IAM practice, or just want to strengthen it, then the Refresher Course is for you! At the Refresher you can ask questions, clarify and deepen your understanding of the technique, and be guided through the steps of practice. Many who have attended Refresher Courses have found they gained a great intellectual and experiential boost to their IAM practice. You are also welcome to attend any or all of the IAM-35 class.

There is no charge for the Refresher course, but donations are welcome to help with facility expenses.
