What was the program like?
I was eager to attend the lectures and soak up all of the Sivananda teachings as I had at Yasodhara ashram . My expectation was that the instructors would fill our minds with challenging questions, new ideals, and show us a different way to view our world. Unfortunately what I expected was so far from what they actually offered. Looking back, I should have done a bit more research in choosing the right ashram for me, but there’s always next time!
