Learn how to ‘Ride the Wave’!
The living practices of Shambhava Yoga will teach you how to focus your mind,
open your heart, and ride the waves of your life with grace and speed!
Through asana, meditation, and a balanced yogic lifestyle, Shambhava Yoga has been teaching people how to work and grow from the challenges of their life for the past 40 years. With authentic and ancient practices, a community of practitioners, and a living teacher, this is not a passing fad. It takes work, it takes time, but it also takes you on the ride of your life, and the rewards are cosmic.
History of Shambhava Yoga
In 1975, Sri Shambhavananda led a small group of yogis to Boulder, Colorado. They opened the first vegetarian restaurant in the area and named it in honor of their teacher, Swami Rudrananda. For them, the restaurant was more than just an eatery; it was an arena for their growth. Sri Shambhavananda taught them how to use the challenges of running the restaurant to grow spiritually. Living, meditating, and working together they flourished.
The success of the restaurant, and later a bakery, afforded the small dedicated bunch their dream of building a yoga ashram; a place where people could go to experience the yogic tradition through nourishing retreats, asana practice, meditation, and seva (selfless service).
At a time in America when yoga’s popularity outshines its original purpose, Shambhava Yoga stands as a living example of timeless teachings in a present-day practice. Sri Shambhavananda inspires students to combine hard work with heart work and use the practice of meditation to rise above, and grow from, the challenges of everyday life.
Shambhava Yoga ashrams and affiliate centers are run by gifted and dedicated practitioners who use the practice to grow and improve their lives. Each center has been given the blessing of Sri Shambhavananda to pass on the teachings of the lineage under his guidance.
