Abhedashram is established to uphold and promote the study and practice of Yoga and Vedanta and to enhance spirituality and wellbeing in daily life. The Yoga taught is based on the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali and Vedanta in the tradition of Sri Bhagavatpada Shankaracharya’s Advaita.
These are delivered through Satsanga (spiritual discourses), meditation and Hatha Yoga courses, weekend and youth programmes and Hatha Yoga teachers’ training courses. Please check Upcoming Events for event dates.
None of the programmes or facilities would have been possible without the invaluable efforts and teaching of the esteemed founder Shrimad Paramahamsa Parivrajakacharya Svami Sadananda Sarasvati, of the Sri Shankaracharya lineage. UCYL Trust was established in the continent in 1972 and 1981 in Great Britian.
