Sharada Devi


Sharada Devi practices devotion, presence and surrender. Through compassion, creativity and loving acceptance — her intention is to be the yoga, not do the yoga.

With over twenty-five years of experience, she has learned it’s all about little steps and kindness. And also, endurance — so never give up.

Married for twelve years to the infamous American sadhu Bhagavan Das (from Ram Dass’s ‘Be Here Now’), not only did Sharada Devi travel the world leading kirtan, yoga retreats and teaching tantra — she also produced, sang, and played percussion on Love Songs To The Dark Lord, The Howler At Dawn and Mother Light.  

Though Sharada Devi has received spiritual transmissions by some of the great yogic masters of our time, enabling her to channel their ever-expanding grace in her classes, retreats and art — she is not a religious person. She has no rules to uphold — and she is nobody’s mother. Expect nothing but honesty — and her opinion. (which isn’t even real.)
