Vira Bhava Yoga

Vira Bhava Yoga serves to catalyze communities of Authentic Warriors. Vira means "warrior" and Bhava means "the essence of" ...   Vira Bhava Yogis are willing to embody the essence of a warrior, and to live a more fully authentic life. Our teacher training programs are designed not only to teach yoga, but also to support students as they take their practice off their mat and into their lives. 

Vira Bhava Yoga also offers opportunities for our Advanced Level graduates to create lucrative businesses in their communities. We offer a turn-key yoga teacher training license program to our graduates, 84% of whom are women. Our licensure provides ongoing revenue to our license holders, so they can make a sustainable living doing what they love.

What does it mean to be a Vira Bhava Yogi?

At Vira Bhava Yoga, we are steadfast in our convictions. We cultivate and stand on a foundation of trust. We trust in ourselves, in our choices, and in a power that is simultaneously who we are,  and so much bigger than who we think we are.

We weather the storms of life with grace. We anticipate the ever changing nature of our environment and our inner landscape, and we work to anchor in the unchanging core of our Self that resonates our truth.  We serve the world in alignment with our natural gifts and our dharma. We see the light in everyone, even those who call us to battle.  We are aware that EVERY battle is an inward one, and when provoked, called upon, or challenged by the outside world, we are really just being called to heal our own inner lacerations.

As Vira Bhava Yogis, we commit to the practice of healing and becoming whole so that we can best serve the world. We are always in service to the highest principles.

Are you a good fit for Vira Bhava Yoga Teacher Trainings?

Vira Bhava Yoga Teacher Trainings are a good fit for practicing yogis who have experienced directly that Yoga is more than an asana or even meditation, and that it is a bridge to our own infinite capacity.  Vira Bhava Yoga is a good fit for those who seek to create great change in the world, and who desire to cultivate the courage and the clarity needed to be steady and resilient in the face of maddening hardship.  It is through the practice of yoga that we maintain our center, cultivate our courage, and take care of our minds, bodies, hearts and our world.

Vira Bhava Yoga works to cultivate each participant’s unique gifts by fostering an opportunity for individual growth and expansion. We work with Yogis who are ready to connect to the inspiration and power that this practice has to offer through tools, teachings, inquiry, and support inspired by the teachings of Sri Vidya Tantra and Para Yoga. 

We are warriors. We are courageous. We are unapologetic in our greatness, and we walk together in community, knowing that the next savior is not one person, but the entire sangha, the whole community. We are committing to a better tomorrow by first healing ourselves and then by seeing ourselves in others.
