During satsang, we come together as a community for meditation, chanting, daily prayers, and spiritual learning. At the Yoga Retreat, morning satsangs feature senior ashram staff and spiritual leaders as well as visiting teachers and guides from Sivananda ashrams and centers worldwide. In the evening, students enjoy a diversity of special programs, festivals, concerts, and symposia with distinguished guest presenters offered each night.

Students have one day off a week. During the day off, students are still required to attend morning and evening satsangs and to perform their Karma Yoga. The rest of the day, they have time for study and are welcome to enjoy the services of the Well Being Center or the daily Yoga Vacation workshops offered at the ashram; students can also explore the area around the asharm, take the time to rest on the beach or in the gardens.
The TTC was intentionally designed with a rigorous schedule in order to transform students into authentic yogis, knowledgable teachers, and leaders for peace in the world.
