Gurudevi does not offer vocational training. These teachings of yoga are for the immediate needs of the student so that spiritual progress may unfold more quickly. Gurudevi, Satguru Shri Mahashaktiananda is a Member of Independent Yoga Educators.

Paramahansa Yogananda is the author of “Autobiography of a Yogi”, “Whispers From Eternity”, and “Cosmic Chants”.  The study of his yoga teachings brought me great joy and the desire to share the teachings of yoga with others. In 1968 I began developing a Hatha Yoga system which flowed from one pose to another like a dance. I call this system Shakti Ananda Yoga; Shakti (kundalini female principle within) Ananda (bliss in the experience) Yoga (union or to yoke). The Shakti (female principle) unites with Shiva (male principle). Thus in the Shakti-Shiva union the mind, heart and soul is one with the Creator. The teachings are available for online study.”
