What is Yoga Science?

The American Meditation Institute is a 501(c)3 non-profit educational organization devoted to providing comprehensive training in Yoga Science—the world’s oldest holistic mind/body medicine and the core principle of every spiritual tradition. Yoga is the sacred science that provides proven benefits by facilitating the union of the superconscious mind with the physical, mental and emotional elements of everyday life. Founded in 1996 by Leonard and Jenness Perlmutter, AMI combines ancient Eastern wisdom and modern Western science in a practical, empowering curriculum. The foundation course of this curriculum is AMI MEDITATION.

*Highly Recommended* AMI MEDITATION: The Foundation Course of Yoga Science. Starts Tues Oct 27 or Sat Nov 7. Details at bit.ly/2GQ7EuM Read more of what Valerie has to say about this empowering, life-changing 6-week course: As an LGBTQIA person, I have the same experiences impressed on all of us by the world. It doesn’t matter whether you
are a senior citizen, as I am, or three generations younger. It doesn’t matter your nationality, culture or religion. From our
earliest moments we experience rejection and denunciation. We internalize profound shame, fear and loss. We live our lives simultaneously trying to overcome these emotions and protect ourselves from further rejection. My life quest to understand my
soul, eventually led me to the American Meditation Institute, and my teachers Leonard and Jenness Perlmutter. I continue my spiritual journey at AMI and its community of practitioners of yoga science and philosophy. But what I also found, and did
not anticipate, was the uncompromising acceptance of me. I found in AMI an environment where I could slowly lower my
defenses. I could begin being an authentic LGBTQIA person without reservation. AMI embodies the Yoga Science wisdom
that we are all one. The impact of that truth is simply that yoga ” includes all, excludes none.“ I can unequivocally share with my LBGTQIA extended family everywhere that, regardless of your individual spiritual or religious beliefs, you will be loved and embraced, as you are, at AMI.
