Teaching people the path to true happiness...
To live in the state of Yoga.  Always.

The people you see below are true Yogis - people who have dedicated themselves to spreading the knowledge of Raja Yoga and teaching the authentic practice of Hatha Yoga as it has existed for thousands of years.  Our team of sevaks not only teach but personally strive to live every day as a Yogi, serving others selflessly with sincerity and compassion.  The life-changing benefits of Yoga that transformed their lives are now being imparted on others through their commitment and effort.


Our collective goal is to teach people how to live in harmony and happiness and how to remain in optimal health throughout life, mentally, physically and spiritually.
