Interested in serving others? In deepening into yourself?
Karma Yoga, or selfless service, is the first of the Four Paths of Yoga, and according to the great yogis like Swami Sivananda, it is the foundation on which all Yogic practice is based.
Time and again, great yogis guide us to the wisdom of purifying our heart. There is no better way to achieve this than through selfless service.
Our Karma Yoga program at The Yoga Ranch is an amazing opportunity to be a part of a non-profit Sivananda organization that extends the world over – a global community of practitioners looking to do good in the world, to deepen their practice, and to live for something bigger than themselves.
Come experience the unique gifts of Karma Yoga. Open into yourself. Cultivate lasting friendships. Observe the transformation that comes with selfless service.
Serve. Love. Give. Purify. Meditate. Realize.
What is Karma Yoga?
Karma Yoga is the practice of giving our actions for the good of the action itself, with no thought of personal reward. It is where we begin stepping into our highest expression by aligning our focus to the benefit of humanity.When action is done without the expectation of fruits, then all the negative qualities like egoism, hatred, jealousy, ideas of superiority, and selfishness begin to vanish. We develop a broad and liberal outlook on life and feel oneness and unity.
The Yoga Ranch provides the perfect setting to put the teachings of Karma Yoga into practice. As part of a community of like-minded practitioners and guided by the Yoga Ranch’s senior staff, we deepen our knowledge and practice of Yoga, open our heart, develop useful skills, and enjoy the variety of programs in our free time.You do not have to be a Yoga teacher in order to join the Karma Yoga Program – all that is needed is the willingness to serve and learn to lead a Yogic life.
