What is Real Never Dies

In light of this global pandemic, we’ve had to reimagine how the Shala community will be able to gather in the future. As a studio owner, it has forced me to face the unknown and accept the financial reality of the situation. After thoroughly considering my options and reluctantly aligning with the forces of nature, I have had to make the heart-wrenching decision to release our beautiful yoga space. 

In the midst of profound sadness and waves of grief, I trust that this sacrifice is necessary for transformation. Yoga is designed to help us See more clearly and loosen our attachments, The techniques prepare us for letting go consciously. That’s when you find out if your practice is really working.  As our teacher Ravi says, “You can’t just be in the business of transformation. You too, have to transform.”

While the form is changing, our Ojai Yoga Shala community is alive and connecting. We will continue to evolve and adapt to ensure that we stay healthy and thriving.

We are excited to be in our third month of streaming live yoga classes from our homes and hearts to yours— to guide and support your practice, and to nourish and strengthen our human connection. We hope you will join us as we navigate this new landscape together. Sign up!

When it is safe to gather again, we look forward to seeing you in our live classes and gatherings in beautiful venues throughout the Ojai Valley. 

With Love and Gratitude,
