Public Open Classes & Private Yoga Therapy Sessions.
 

We are blessed to have Brahmacharini Shobhana, Global Director of Amrita Yoga, offering yoga sessions at MA Center Chicago.

 
Amrita Yoga & Amma.
Amrita Yoga was born from the divine resolve and unconditional compassion of renowned spiritual leader, humanitarian, Maha Yogini, Satguru Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, known as Amma. A traditional school of Hatha Yoga upholding Vedic principles, Amrita Yoga incorporates Amma’s teachings and integrates the four different paths of yoga, cultivating physical, mental, and spiritual upliftment. Focusing on awareness with heart-centered intention, the goal is to transcend the physical asana practice to deepen your own self-awareness and the inter-connectedness of all life.
 
Brahmacharini Shobhana.
Brahmacharini Shobhana, PhD, is an award-winning yoga practitioner and teacher who has dedicated her life to the pursuit of authentic yoga as a monastic in Amma’s ashram. Under Amma’s direct guidance, as director of Amrita Yoga® since 2004, she has taught more than 2000 workshops, classes and retreats to people from all over the world. Specializing in bridging the gap between ancient traditional Eastern practice and the practical needs of yoga in the West, Bri. Shobhana is one of only twelve members on the Government of India's Committee for Yoga Education, which forms the curriculum courses in Indian universities.
