The most sacred journey is the one to discover yourself
Our BURMA YOGA SEVA project is one filled with heart and complete devotion to the selfless power of yoga. We are extremely fortunate to be invited to a Buddhist Nunnery and teach over 500 nuns and orphans yoga, meditation and self empowerment. It is our best work yet. We travel from afar, stay on the grounds and devote over 4 hours a day of yoga. This trip is conducted every year in April. Contact us to learn more, see how you can get involved or donate to this amazing project.

“Om Gam Ganpataye Namah”
Meaning : It means bowing down to the Almighty Ganpati with all our existence and accepting all his great qualities in our self being.
Benefit : It wards off all the negativities from one’s life before beginning any work. Chanting of this mantra ensures success in all the new ventures that one wishes to undertake. “Lord Ganesh, son of Lord Shiva, remover of obstacles who guards the doorway to the enlightened realms. His blessings are essential for good beginnings.” According to Kundalini yoga, Ganesh, also referred to as Ganapataye, resides in the first chakra, called Muladhara (muladhara). Mula means "original," and adhara means "foundation." The muladhara chakra is the principal origin from which the manifesting energy of Shakti resides within each of us. When we awaken that energy, it helps us move through the Chakras with ease to activate a strong sense of self, express Divine love, communicate clearly and connect with our intuition.
We share this mantra and Ganesh blessings with all of you🙏✨ practice this mantra for 40days #ganeshmantra #omandroam

“ When we walk like (we are rushing), we print anxiety and sorrow on the earth. We have to walk in a way that we only print peace and serenity on the earth... Be aware of the contact between your feet and the earth. Walk as if you are kissing the earth with your feet.” Thich Nhat Hanh.
One of the best aspects of this yoga seva project, is the opportunity to meditate with the orphans and nuns, deepening our own practice along the way. Forever thankful 🙏
