The Divine Art of Yoga Center (DAYC) provides spiritually guided yoga and meditation practices to help individuals achieve harmony of body, mind and soul.
Divine Art of Yoga Center is an organization that focuses on enlightening and guiding the spiritual journey of each being. We strive to achieve unity with our inner divine self though meditation, yoga, spiritual discourses and charitable acts.
We understand and accept the many challenges of our lives in this quickly changing world, but it is our profound belief that our existence and presence here on Mother Earth can and should be one of joy, bliss and tranquility.
It is through the connection of our mind, body and soul that this balance can be attained. As food satisfies hunger, and exercise leads to good health, so does seeking inner peace stabilize the mind. Our Center focuses on bringing that stabilization to people regardless of race or religion by utilizing their own foundation to further their progression on life’s journey.
To help spiritual seekers realize their own divinity through yoga, meditation, and spiritual discourses while helping them achieve a deep and lasting peace whose vibrations will radiate out and benefit all life on Earth.
We commonly call this center an Ashram. An ashram is a non-denominational place where people find peace and fulfillment with the help of spiritual teachers. Participants can enjoy activities like yoga, meditation, and empowerment groups.
With all the health and fitness options in the modern world, it’s more important than ever to spend our time wisely with a yoga practice that stretches the entire body, tones the muscles, increases oxygen to all organs, decreases stress, and many other benefits. Yoga goes back 5000 years and has extended the lives and helped prevent illnesses for millions of people, and it has even improved their relationships.
Yoga improves our immunity system, promotes overall health and fitness, and even self-healing. It also relaxes the mind, allowing us to have more energy, greater focus, self-awareness and concentration.
Our Yoga classes are offered at all levels, from beginners and seniors, to advanced. There are several types of yoga, including Hatha Yoga and Ashtanga Yoga.
Hatha Yoga is a series of stress relieving exercises focusing on the control of breathing. Ashtanga Yoga focuses on posture for beginners and promotes better concentration and self-purification.
Yoga classes are open for all levels : Beginners, Seniors, and Intermediate. Open and Advanced. This class is fit for everyone, from those with no prior yoga or experience to serious practitioners. Each class begins with gentle stretching leading to classic Hatha yoga in a comfortable environment.
Spiritual Discourses are held every Sunday 4 to 6PM at the La Habra Asharam. They are open for all, and are followed by a community
“When ‘I’ is replaced with ‘WE’, even ‘ILLness’ becomes ‘WELLness’— Shannon L. Alder JIVANTAis an ancient Sanskrit word originating from JIVAN (life).
JIVANTA : "Its literal meaning is “to give life”—metaphorically translated to “vibrant” in English. Here at DAYC, we believe women are some of the strongest creatures to set foot on this Earth. Women are the only people who can give live in this world. The mere aura of a women is enough to captivate and illuminate both people and everything they touch. Our goal at the DAYC is not only to strengthen women physically, but also to empower them mentally. JIVANTA is a new support initiative to bring women of all ages closer. We believe we can strengthen our community together by sharing our experiences, joys, and hardships. We strive to push women to be confident all aspects of their lives—social, professional, and spiritual. Check the Calendar for the next meeting. Contact Neelam at (562) – 242 – 4I85 or (562)245-6469 for questions or concerns."
There is an array of meditation courses to assist your spiritual journey. One of our most popular meditation courses is Yogic Breathing and Om Changing, or Pranayama. It is the practice of skillfully and intentionally inhaling, exhaling, and retaining breath to promote greater relaxation and numerous health benefits.
OM Meditation is the practice of chanting OM, which is known as the primal sound of the universe, that comprises all of the sounds within itself. This relaxingpractice is the beginning of peace and purification of the soul and mind. Also, our center offers Vedic and Yogic Meditation which can lure the wandering mind into a subtle and restful awareness. With frequent practice, the benefits are immense. As a new driver needs a proficient instructor, one should utilize the guidance of a meditation master to navigate the benefits of meditation.
DAYC has several empowerment groups to guide and engage its participants on their spiritual voyage.
We have JIVANTA, a women’s empowerment group that meets monthly. JIVANTA means “vibrant living,” and many pertinent topics are addressed and explored. A woman’s life journey is a multi-faceted experience, and new members find our diverse group supportive and nurturing.
The Spiritual Seekers Group meets monthly and enables anyone to share where they are on their spiritual journey for support, and no judgement. These popular sessions have themes like, “What is my Gift?” and “Who Am I?” There areno right or wrong answers, only valuable inquiries, and the love and support of the group.
Lastly, there is a Conscientious Kids group that meets once a month for children ages 5-13, and a Youth Group aged14-17. This group engages in activities and practices that help build awareness and character in the children using fun activities, moral discussion, community-building, good citizenship lessons, yoga and pranayama.
Mahatma means “great soul.” Mahatma Rammurti Baiji and Mahatma Gautam Baiji are the spiritual teachers at the DAYC.
They have dedicated their lives to others’ spiritual growth. The Mahatmas have brought their spiritual teachings all over the world, and now reside here in La Habra, California.
We are very fortunate to have Mahatmas of such profound spiritual depth accessible to us. Many who know the book “Eat, Pray, Love” can appreciate that we don’t need to travel to India to experience an authentic guru’s wisdom and to know their loving presence. They are here for our benefit, and it’s up to us to take advantage of their divine teachings.
Satsang are spiritual discourses. “Sat” means Truth, and “sang” means company. So this means we are in the company of great souls. They teach that the importance of meditation is how to connect with our inner self. Satsang gives us more peace and less stress in our lives.
Their discourses shows us the importance of learning and mastering our thoughts. Our thoughts are the seed of our mental/spiritual trees. With the utilization of these discourses we can live a life we choose.
The Mahatma Baijis also teach various techniques that allow people to get ever closer to their divine self.
