Lila Devi Dasi found the path of Bhakti Yoga 10 years ago and it has since transformed her life. She has since dedicated her life to the path and to sharing these teachings to others in the hope that they can also transform their own lives. An instructor of Hatha yoga since 2011, Lila brings to her classes an emphasis on applying yogic principles to the healing of trauma, chronic stress, and addictions. She is currently involved in serving her spiritual mentor, Hridayananda Das Goswami, via his global Krishna West project and forming and leading Bhakti community groups that support one’s personal and spiritual journey via sacred scriptures and the practices of compassion, self-awareness, and non-violent communication.
Urban Devi is a community of women who gather to explore and excavate their identities as urban women living the spiritual life. An urban devi is in the world, but not of the world. She acts in the world to uplift, and shift the consciousness of those around her to a higher place of Bhakti, or love in action.
