Yoga Society of San Francisco
YSSF was incorporated in 1972 by Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati with the intention:
- To promote self-analysis
- To analyze and discover principles of good health, as well as mental and spiritual happiness
- To foster and promote the education of people to experience the unity of all mankind
- To discover the causes of disunity and disharmony between person and persons, nation and nations
- To promote, encourage and establish unity and harmony
We provide an environment that develops, fosters, and promotes the experience of Oneness through various physical, intellectual, and spiritual practices.
We offer regular Hatha Yoga, Breathwork (Pranayama) Meditation, Sanskrit, and Yoga Psychology/ Philosophy classes, as well as workshops and retreats on Yoga-asana, meditation, breathing, movement, detoxification and stress-reduction. We also have a residential program for intensive study and immersion. All group meditations, including twice-daily Vedic Fire ceremonies, are free of charge.
