All Prophets & realized beings are Yogis. Break free from the confinements of culture, creed and especially the limits of our own mind, body and circumstances through yoga. Yoga awakens us to the highest potential of living, peaceful coexistence and genius.

By doing yoga we become the YOGI, the messenger of peace, love, nonviolence and compassion.

We awaken our own inner Divine wisdom to be liberated.

The International Yoga Day is the bridge awakening humanity for each to be the Yogi.

This site is dedicated to the advancement of all yoga practitioners to the inherent intent becoming the realized Masters themselves.

“To work with God's happiness bubbling in the soul is to carry a portable paradise within you wherever you go.” ― Paramahansa Yogananda

Divine Beings, it is my dream come true to see over 190 countries adopt the International Yoga Day. The International Yoga Day is one of the largest events of humanity in joint participation.

12 years ago, inspired by the Siddhas, I created the "World Yoga Day" as in idea, intent, trade mark and the Message- for each person to wake up to be the Yogi.
When awake in Consciousness, as the Yogi, the world will be peaceful, abundant, non-violent and loving. With the launch of the International Yoga Day, Honorable Sri Narendra Modiji makes our Siddha intent come true for all of humanity.

I specifically wished for the date of Mahashivratri of each year-but June 21st was instead chosen by the Government of India as a fixed day and more globally recognized as the longest day of the year. We realized the original intent more clearly now as in guiding each yoga practitioner to be the yogi - WORLD YOGI DAY- aligned to the Mahasivratri time vortex of each year. Mahasivratri is the once a year sacred days to attain the awareness and blessings to be the Spirit, Lord Siva. By awakening to the meaning behind "namaste" to understand our own Divinity, we awaken to Consciousness. For thousands of years, the auspicious dates of Mahashivratri has been and continues to be observed by millions of yogis and householders.

Yoga is the union with Source and Source has innumerable names ultimately understood as Consciousness- and as Yogi, we are each the ambassadors of Yoga.
Yoga is Consciousness. More of humanity doing yoga means more of real peace, harmony, abundance and basic goodness for Mother Earth.
When awake to be the Yogi, we shift humanity exponentially as Masters who create realities as Messengers of Peace.
Please invite your friends and all whom you care for- so together as Yogi, We Arise.

Pranaams, love and blessing we share with each other in breath of One.

Mahasivratri and Yogi

For a yogi/ni, Mahasivratri is the “Day/Night of Yoga”, the time to transcend, transform and evolve. Mahasivratri has been observed as the single most important vortex of time by the yogis and householders in India for thousands of years. Based on the planetary alignment with earth and the lunar cycle, this vortex of time holds the objectives of yogi as in being the Spirit having the human experience; as in being ‘liberated’ from the limits of the mind and as in having the grace of Source in our daily realities. This year of 2016, Mahasivratri falls on Tuesday, March 8th.. Read More >


Mahasivratri and Turiya

One of the key observations during the night of Mahasivratri is to stay awake all night. In reality, it is not about being a weekend warrior staying up all night singing, chanting and dancing but about training ourselves to go beyond the mind and its sleep pattern through meditative practice. At the time vortex of Mahasivratri, we are able to experience the ‘sleepless sleep’ state with less effort. When we utilize yogi as a tool to consciousness, we realize that the journey is beyond the mind and the natural states of consciousness that is sleep, being.. Read More >
