8:00 –9:00 am

We can all relate to pain—it’s the main reason people go to a doctor. Yoga offers us some simple and time-tested ways to help. Join the podcast with Yogacharya O’Brian and Swami Sivasankariananda, as they explore how we can teach the body a new response.

The Yoga Hour: Living the Eternal Way offers inspiration, insights, and time-tested practices from the ancient system of Kriya Yoga. This hour of dialogue with internationally renowned spiritual teachers offers keen insight into universal principles for enlightened living while touching the most practical aspects of our lives such as work, relationships, health, and diet. Even while emphasizing the practical, it speaks to our deepest yearnings to fully awaken to Self- and God-realization in this lifetime.

You can listen to The Yoga Hour each Thursday morning at 8 am PT on the Unity Online Radio website or tune in with your smartphone via Stitcher.
