Polishing the Sacredness Within: The Urban Yogi’s Teachings of Pure Radiance


As much as we hate to admit it, all of us come with shadow qualities to our thoughts, inner beliefs, behaviors and personalities. The shatkarmas or deep purification practices of yoga cleanse us so that the arduous process of transformation becomes easier. These radiance practices heal us on a cellular level by releasing karmic patterns that just make us feel stuck. We learn to seek, welcome, initiate and befriend change, rather than resisting it.

Unstick yourself with master teacher Acharya Swami Jaya Devi as we explore the modern yogic diet, Ayurvedic essentials, and dinacharya practices to pursue your own evolution and resiliency.

The Embodied Equanimity Teachings: Peace Is My Birthright, Ritual Is My Song


The images of the Vedic gods and goddesses depict wild warrior beings lighting up the universe, riding tigers, shooting thunderbolts of awareness, and dancing dissolution and creation into being. As yogis, we open, accept and embody all of this wildness, riding the wave of the breath, remaining in ever-present awareness through it all.

This, we are told is equanimity, the state of well-being that teaches us to willingly consume all of life and all of death. While honoring the dance of the universe through ancient fire ceremony, embodied offering, ritual, chant and song, we’ll heal our hearts together in sacred beloved community.

Join master teacher Acharya Swami Jaya Devi as we employ the universal elements to both create and experience Durga Puja, a timeless honoring of the sacred feminine in all her interfaith wildness and all her diverse forms.

You cannot fully be free without surrendering to the vast expanse of the universe. The cosmos turns as the yogi dances in tune with the rhythm of time. Yoga can teach you move in this sacred duet, in harmony with the forces of karma, reality and trust. Understood as union, yoga indicates a link, an unbreakable connection to the sacred realities. This opens you to experience life as it is from life where you are, trusting your dance to unfold. The deeper dimensions of yoga light the path where radiant truth and soft surrender initiate you into the moments of bliss.

Join master teacher Acharya Swami Jaya Devi as we explore the relationship between trust, bliss and surrender, expanding our capacity for meditation and bliss.
