about-the-shala
Bhakti Yoga Shala is a west coast bhakti yoga/spiritual community, known worldwide for its devotional programming. After serving Santa Monica for 11 years in person, BYS became an online-only studio in 2020. This has allowed BYS to better serve the global community. Memberships to our online studio help support the Shala. The Shala is directed by husband-wife team Govind Das and Radha, who aim to spread the practice of bhakti around the world. At the Shala, we follow the teachings of the great saint Neem Karoli Baba, who celebrated all Gods as one. Anyone and everyone is welcome, and we are happy to serve you on your spiritual journey.

Gnam

In his freshman year of college, in 1989, Govind Das was introduced to the practice of meditation and the spiritual culture of the east. A few years later, while on a road trip, G listened to a Ram Dass lecture. This cassette tape changed the course of his life. Govind Das has since dedicated his life to studying and sharing the practices of bhakti yoga.

 

Gnam

Visiting Bali as a child, Radha remembers going to temples and seeing the altars in front of the shops. When she moved from Australia to LA, she met Govind Das and was introduced to bhakti and kirtan. She is grateful to have found this heart-opening and transformative practice and to be able to share it with others.
