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).
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.
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. Visit one to learn how you can live the practice and love your life with Shambhava Yoga™.
