Yoga as a Community Service
Our approach to yoga is holistic and resonant of the 5000-year old system of total wellness from ancient India. We offer yoga as community service in various temples and community halls.
The yogic system is based on the core belief that a human being's natural state is one of optimal health and wellness. In line with this thinking, we aim to reduce disturbances in physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual health to allow an individual to function at his/her optimal potential. In our classes, we place emphasis on breath awareness for sharper focus, loosening practices to prepare for yogasanas and hatha yoga poses for mind/body awareness, and pranayama/meditation for a deeper connection with oneself.
Donation Based Yoga Classes
We offer classes where people can practice yoga on donation basis in Bay Area temples and community halls. We thank the temple authorities and City officials of these locations and our volunteers who offer the venue for us to run the classes.
Our donation based classes are for all levels (aimed at enhancing the wellness quotient of participants) and are appropriate for adults of all ages whether you are new to yoga or have been practicing for years. We do not recommend these classes for participants who have health conditions that need attention. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for your specific health needs.
We encourage you to avail these classes and in turn enable Yoga Bharati to offer community service to the poor, underprivileged and special groups such as seniors, cancer patients who are in need of yoga. Come join us for these classes and donate towards the noble cause of spreading holistic message of yoga!
