Kashi Atlanta is an urban ashram and sanctuary that actively serves its community as a yoga center and a provider of service programs. Through yoga, service and an interfaith spiritual environment, we provide an atmosphere that nourishes the body, mind and spirit and encourages the integration of classical yogic principles into daily life.

We are currently offering all of our classes and events through Live Stream only.

We are happy to share that Swami Jaya Devi will teach her Oct. 31st and Nov. 7th Saturday morning yoga class in person and outside 

The class will be held at Clifton Sanctuary Ministries just a few blocks from the ashram. We will provide pre-marked spots for each of your mats to ensure we remain socially distant and we ask that you only bring your mat, your water and you.

This class will also be live streamed as usual so if you are unable to come in person, we invite you to continue to join us online. If you plan on registering to attend in person, please be sure to sign up for the OUTDOOR offering.

If we cancel due to weather, we will move you into the live stream class and adjust the drop-in rate to $10. We can also provide a full refund.

Each Monday, registration for Swami Jaya Devi’s class will be open for the following Saturday. And keep your eyes open for a few other outdoor class offerings coming soon!!!

Titles for the Times

Bhava Devi Jaya

From Bhava Devi’s Bookshelf

Bhava Devi, longtime Kashi resident and teacher, and founding member of Kashi’s Black Yoga Collective, has assembled a collection of books that she considers impactful and worth a look. "The books on this list have opened my heart, brought wonder and curiousity to my mind, and provided tools I can use for spiritual growth and healing as I engage in the world."

A Community of Sacred Space

Infinity Breath to Create Calm and Open Space

Namaste!

Set your intention to create space to release negative thoughts and connect to the vast formless essence within.

Place hands so the fingertips are touching, fingers separated and palms apart, with a sphere-like space between the hands. Inhale a deep breath through the nose; exhale through the mouth, puckering the lips like you are blowing out a candle.

Then inhale through your mouth still puckering, like drawing air in through a straw. Exhale through your nose. Use very long deep breaths. Continue for 11 minutes. Create space between your thoughts. Feel consciousness expanding within you.

Love,
Swami Jaya Devi

This sacred ritual and meditation was performedat the auspicious time of Passover, Easter, and in our lineage, Ma’s Mahasamadhi.

Love,
Swami Jaya Devi

We are collecting donations to buy food, help with rent, etc. for people in our community who are in need.

Online-Classes Only

After lots of heart centered discussion and reflection, we have decided to suspend all in person yoga classes at Kashi Atlanta for the time being. As of Tuesday March 17, we are live-streaming ALL of our weekly classes, and no students are permitted in the building to take class. We miss practicing in person so much but feel that our streaming options are the very best and most responsible way to navigate this challenging time.

Now, more than ever, it is important to keep connected and to keep practicing! At Kashi, we are a community that practices and grows together. Please join us online regularly to connect and recreate our intimate community online. It will take focus and stretch us all, but we believe it is worth it.

We are offering special pricing for our online-only classes:

  • $10 for Drop-In Class
  • $48 for a Six-Class Pass
  • $75 for Unlimited Monthly Pass

We are live-streaming three FREE classes a week for all of you facing financial challenges during this time:

  • Fridays at 4:30 pm · All Levels Yoga
  • Sundays at 4:30 pm · All Levels Yoga
    and
  • Friday at 6:30 pm Trans & Queer Yoga with Amala

Register online as you would for a regular class through Wellness Living. Please be sure we have your current phone number! Once you are registered for your class, you will receive a text message with the link and password to the stream 30 minutes before class begins. If you register less than 30 minutes before class, you will receive a text message with the link and password 5 minutes before class begins. If you register less than 5 minutes before class begins, we will try to send you the link and password ASAP.

If you have any trouble at all registering for class please call (404) 687-3353. Our virtual office hours are 9:00 am – 2:00 pm and 5:30 pm – 7:45 pm.

So many people from our community have helped us to mobilize our online streaming and many of you have asked how you can be of service. We thank you and are grateful for your help! Please take really good care of yourselves and please continue to join us for class!
