Due to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, and following U.K. Government instructions in response to the pandemic, Mandala Yoga Ashram has now halted its programme of courses and stays until further notice. If you are booked on an up-coming course we will contact you no later than 2 weeks before the course start date to confirm whether it is cancelled or whether, hopefully not too far into the future, the course is running.
For all those who have booked a course or stay that we are forced to cancel, we can offer the following options.
If you are able to donate part, or all, of your deposit to support the Ashram during this time it will be most gratefully received, as the Ashram is facing its own financial losses as a result of this closure.
You can transfer your deposit to another course later in 2020 when the Ashram is able to re-open. We are planning to run some of the courses that we are forced to cancel later in the year.
We can hold your deposit as credit for a course during the 2021. As soon as the calendar for 2021 is released we will be able to reserve your place.
We can refund your deposit in full.
Whilst we can’t currently share with you physically in the Ashram please know that you are all still part of the Ashram family and that we are with you in Spirit. As the old truism says – this too shall pass – and we look forward to welcoming you here once things have settled.
To unite us during this difficult period, we will conduct two daily practice sessions:
Daily Morning Practice. In the Ashram at 7.30-8.15 (UK time), or 8.30-9.15 (France; Sweden etc.) we will chant the Mrityunjaya Mantra (27 times) followed by a Meditation. We invite you to join us. This is an opportunity for you to feel connected and supported. The purpose will be to put ourselves in touch with those who are suffering both from the virus and financially.
Daily Evening Meditation. Every evening at 19.00 hrs (UK time), or 20.00 hrs (France, Sweden etc.) Swami Nishchalananda will meditate for 20 minutes, again with the aim of uniting us during this difficult time. You are welcome to join with him through the ether. In time, this may evolve into an online meditation and sharing.
