Dakshina:  Yoga’s Practice of “Giving Back”

When you follow your impulse toward generosity by making a financial contribution to support your teacher and the teachings, you are engaging in the ancient yogic practice of dakshina. 

Dakshina is unconditional giving, motivated by a pure inner impulse and dedicated to a higher purpose. You give from a bhav (feeling, mood) of gratitude and love for your yoga, whatever the size or type of your donation. There is nothing to be gained, except your own Self. Through dakshina you weave your yoga into your wallet!

“Your donations are very much needed, in any amount, deeply respected and always handled with loving care. It is our commitment to you and our service to you.”  —  Gurupremananda (Lynn) Cattafi, President, Ashram Board of Directors

There are many ways to engage in dakshina to support Swami Nirmalananda, Svaroopa® Yoga & Meditation, our teacher trainers and all of our programs:
