Each day we work to build a more compassionate community. Ma's Street Meals serves more than 15,000 meals each year to the poor and homeless. Kashi KidsArt, Kashi Care Team and our successful Jail Yoga program exist to nurture people under duress and assure them that their community cares for them.
Our programs also exist for the volunteers, whose hearts are opened and whose lives are changed every week as they serve those in need in our community. This work is complimented and supported by our ongoing weekly yoga classes, our 200 and 500 hour yoga teacher training programs, a full schedule of yoga workshops, our offerings for bodily and spiritual healing, including our seasonal Ayurvedic cleanses, the Ten Day Yoga Detox, massage therapy, Reiki, and postural alignment sessions.
Your donations go directly to the services and community programs that we organize and host, and they go a long way!
With our Street Meals Program we help to alleviate hunger for the homeless population in Atlanta, serving more than 15,000 meals each year! Street Meals is supported by a dedicated corps of volunteers who are committed to seva - selfless service – as an extension of their yoga practice. We reach hospitalized children through our Art Projects for kids — all supplies are donated or purchased with donated funds. The Kashi Care Team provides assistance and loving compassion to the catastrophically ill, including those living with, AIDS/HIV, cancer, and/or other illnesses. Care Team members visit Care Team recipients at their home, run errands for them, prepare, deliver and serve meals to them and their family, and provide whatever support they can, including at times spending the night.
Your generous support makes all this possible. Thank you for being a part of the work that happens here. You are very much appreciated.
Kashi Atlanta is a 501c3 nonprofit organization serving Metro Atlanta.
As an urban yoga ashram, Kashi Atlanta exists in the guru lineage of Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati and her guru, Neem Karoli Baba. Originally founded in 1998 as Jaya Devi Yoga and renamed in 1999, Kashi Atlanta is an extension of Kashi Ashram in Sebastian, Florida. Kashi’s other main centers are located in Los Angeles and New York.
Kashi Atlanta is an interfaith spiritual community; all paths (and no path at all) are openly welcomed and honored. As Ma Jaya said, “If anyone tells you their way is the only way, you run the other way”.
The core of Kashi Atlanta’s mission is education, service and healing, with living roots in the spiritual teaching of gurus Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati and Neem Karoli Baba. Kashi Atlanta fulfills its mission through yoga, service and loving spiritual community. The body, mind and spirit are nourished in a safe, caring environment that encourages real healing and spiritual growth.
Voted Best Yoga in Atlanta annually since 2000, Kashi Atlanta offers ongoing instruction in all eight limbs of Classical Yoga, including asana, meditation, pranayama, mudra and mantra. Yoga classes are offered in several different styles and levels vary from beginner to advanced.
Class offerings also include pranayama and guided meditation, as well as a class devoted to deeper Spiritual Growth and Meditation. A broad spectrum of practitioners is represented, and each is encouraged to grow in awareness as they progress.
The ashram is open throughout the day for meditation.
