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.

Thought for the Week:
#RamLevReminder

Todays public and private institutions are not adequately educating students. Merely memorizing knowledge for the purpose of making a living does not prepare a person to live a creative, compassionate, responsible and rewarding life. Yoga Science provides a framework for understanding and coordinating the four functions of the mind, so that our thoughts, words and deeds can uphold and maintain the highest ideals inherent in both individual and social well-being.
