Yogi Civilian wants to share expanded knowledge of the yogic experience to under-served people. We are sharing health education & yoga classes in communities of need, with the intention of creating a cyclical program; a sphere of influence from excellence in teaching, to excellence in community: profits from our Common Cosmic Tshirts are distributed to a team of teachers, whom offer classes to the community without charge. The program is modeled and inspired by the Sarvodaya movement of Gandhi in India. : A Common Cosmic and the Yogi Civilian 'Service Team' will serve health education with classes in populations outside of main stream benefits.
The yoga phenomena from an expanded perspective is an emergence of 'understanding' the Universe. People globally are gaining the vast benefits of yoga practice regardless of their level or style. The influence from practice begins the journey to self realization & self awareness, there by, gaining knowledge of the universe. We are now seated in an Information Age, where we can see an explosion of stimulation & expression, leading us to a playful & experimental, simultaneous, co-arising of healing, repairing and innovation. We are building new alliances with sustainable partnerships and greater 'understanding' and 'compassion for the 'whole' - the world.

SivaKali offers restorative, yoga nidra and hatha classes,healing yogic sessions (private & group), workshopsand retreats. Master Teacher, through the study of yoga we can comprehend how the body & mind enable yogic experience to manifest. When the 'yogic sight' eliminates the mind's preconditioning, a person gains the ability to contemplate and look deeply into any aspect of the universe, that is what is meant by 'yogic sight'. If, one chooses, and nature permits, an unconditioned mind can penetrate into any object, substance or material and grasp the underlying truth and essence of the object or material, discovering the elemental secrets of the universe.
