“Loving Service through Yoga and the Vedic Holistic Therapies”
Welcome to our Yoguic Oasis! Just 15 mins from the center of Cali, you’ll find pure nature with panoramic views to enjoy as you’re in a yoga class, lounging on a hammock, or taking a refreshing dip in the pool. Join us for a Yoga class, as a guest , volunteer or participate in our Retreat Style International Teacher Trainings!
Our Yoga style reflects the creativity and fluid movement of Vinyasa Yoga, the refined alignment and heart opening of Anusara Yoga, and the community building elements of Partner Yoga and Acro Yoga.
Our practice and lifestyle is embedded with the Bhakti Yoga Philosophy of love and devotion in all that we do! We see this practice as a way to purify and awaken our consciousness as well as inspire our daily lives.
