Acharya Program

ISHTA Senior TeachersThe Acharya Program is a forum for ISHTA teachers to connect as a community. All ISHTA 300-Hour training graduates are invited to attend free, monthly Acharya events, which provide the opportunity to delve deeper into topics introduced in the ISHTA teacher training program. Meetings are led by ISHTA Yogirajas and Sadakha teachers. If you are an ISHTA 300-Hour graduate, please join us in fostering a deeper connection among ISHTA teachers by sharing your presence at these special get-togethers.

Upcoming Acharya Meetings: 

Thursday, January 22, 2015 at the Downtown Studio from 7:30 PM- 9 PM with the wonderful Yogiraj Wendy Newton speaking about The Kleshas.

The sanskrit root of the word “Klesha” means “to twist.” Our next acharya meeting will use a short excerpt from the forthcoming book The Sutras Through a Tantric Lens to lead us to a deeper understanding of what the kleshas are and how they function in our life and our practice. We’ll talk about how keeping an awareness of how the mind “twists” or interprets our experiences helps us to teach from a place of clarity and compassion. Don’t prepare. Just come and be in the energy of the ISHTA teachings.

The option to SKYPE into the meeting is available and it will also be recorded. Please RSVP if you plan to attend. RSVPs and any questions should be emailed to Donald Johnston (
