Dancing Shiva is committed to improving the quality of life in all individuals regardless of race, religion or cultural diversity through the teachings of Yoga and Ayurveda and Eastern philosophy. The focus of the organization is based on a three-fold approach of education, practice and lifestyle of Vedic wisdom integrated into modern day living. The Dancing Shiva center that began in Los Angeles, California in 2001 has transitioned into a non-profit educational organization (501 C-3).
The hallmark of the school is the unified approach of yoga and ayurveda and is reflected in our unique certification programs that integrate ancient Vedic wisdom along with disciplinary yogic and therapeutic practices and exercises into living a natural and balanced lifestyle. Our vision is to bring practical ayurvedic wisdom into daily mainstream living to eradicate the chronic health issues of today, as well as to inspire individuals to live in accordance with their higher purpose (dharma) of living with a spiritually harmonious attitude. Through its programs, counseling, yoga classes, workshops and lifestyle retreats Dancing Shiva aims to provide an integral approach to personal healing and societal harmony. Dancing Shiva endorses Ayurveda as a real health-care reform that is capable of bringing the mind and body back into balance and yoga as the most complete system of healing that fosters simple living and high thinking as the solutions to a world in spiritual crisis or deprivation. We invite you to join our global community that enjoys the promise of love, peace and happiness.
