About Yoga Shaala
Yoga Shaala is run as a Dharmic enterprise, meaning in modern parlance, it is socially responsible. We put people & planet before profits. As true Yogis our personal needs are very modest, nonetheless for an enterprise to be sustainable for the long run it needs to make some amount of profits. The four pillars of Dharma-Artha-Kama-Moksha all need to be represented in any human endeavor!
At present we are an LLC although at some stage we may explore making this into a Benefit Corporation or a Social Enterprise. These are new structures that are less onerous than a pure non-profit organization, but still require some overhead to manage.
About the Principals
We were both initiated into the practice of Yoga at a very young age in India. We are both also certified yoga teachers in California.
Although we consider ourselves as Swayam-acharya's, not beholden to any particular school of teaching, we stand on the shoulders of innumerable past & living masters who guide us.
We are creating a community of those seeking a more traditional & authentic approach to the practice of yoga.
Let us be your Sherpas in this fascinating journey of enlightenment, and although we won't carry your baggage, we do our best to help you unload it on the way.
