Deepen your study and practice of the yamas & niyamas by studying them again.  This is a full year cycle of email reports and discussion phone calls, similar to the Vows Prep Course led by Swami Nirmalananda. 

This study group is exclusively available to vratins, brahmacharins and sadhakas who completed the Vows Prep Course in a prior year.  The phone calls are moderated by Vratins who are Certified Discussion Group Leaders. These are discussion calls, thus they are not recorded. This program is free, but you pay $25 if you miss a call.  This inspires commitment as well as connection and group support.  Attendance is taken at the beginning of each phone call.

Once the calls have begun, no additional enrollments are allowed.  This is to support the commitment that the vowed yogis are making to each other to work through the process together.

Swami Nirmalananda is not involved in this study group.  She is available to provide support and answer questions in the fourteen free Q&A phone calls scheduled in 2018, both as:

Phone Q&A Satsangs - Enroll early so you are one of the yogis who gets to ask a question! 

 Vratin Q&A Phone Satsangs - Enroll early so that you get to ask a question! 


Vratins who are Certified Discussion Group Leaders.



Prerequisite: Vratins & Sadhakas who have taken the Vows Prep Course in a prior year.

Course Confirmation Date:  January 7 2018 [We will confirm the course for you on or before this date, as soon as we have received enrollments from enough students to ensure a successful program.]
