Our Charitable Giving

We share our blessings through free educational projects, gifting  yoga's many blessings in the United States and India. Swami Nirmalananda explains her selection of our charitable projects, "It's easy to find people who need food and shelter, but education uplifts them in multiple ways simultaneously.  I always gravitate towards projects that feed the soul rather than feed the body. That's what the Ashram is about."

Yoga in the Village, Ganeshpuri India

Five full-time yoga teachers take yoga to the children in the public schools, staff in hospitals and women's empowerment organizations.

We partner with other non-profits in India to serve schools in Ganeshpuri as well as through the surrounding area, the Tansa River Valley.  This program gives yoga back to the land of its origin.

Stress Relief InService (SRI)

We offer free programs to organizations in Downingtown PA and surrounding areas who provide education and healing services to their clientele.

In 2018-2019 we taught hundreds of schoolteachers easy stress-relief tools in monthly InService programs for a full school year.  These free programs supported the teachers with easy yoga tools, no props or special clothing required.  

Our teachers can be scheduled to come to your location and offer one or all of these programs:

  • Simple Stretching
  • Simple Relaxation
  • Simple Breathing
  • Simple Sitting
  • Simple Stillness
  • Quick-Fixes
  • A Sweet Pause

Everything iss carefully non-sectarian, important in public schools, meaning "No Sanskrit." The techniques we teach can be used anywhere, including with students, clients and at home.

Completed Projects

Swami Nirmalananda has been involved in several charitable projects in India, having seen Muktananda’s generosity many years ago.  

Kerala House

In December of 2010, Gurudevi organized contributions to build Kerala House, a home for a single mother and her adult handicapped child. This was made possible through the generous contributions of ashramites, as well as the efforts of the medical staff at Beach and Lake Resort who helped find government money for the daughter’s medical issues. Gurudevi has also provided needed supplies for an orphanage in Kerala, supported temples in Ganeshpuri, and run a free Ayurvedic Clinic in Kerala

Ganeshpuri Music School

From 2010 - 2015, the Ganeshpuri Music School served over 300 local students in harmonium classes, tabla (drum) classes and classical Indian dance classes, bringing the ancient classical music tradition to villagers who would otherwise never have such opportunities.
