Pacific Ashtanga
YouTube Channel

Yoga and meditation are two of the most powerful ways to keep ourselves healthy, vibrant and happy.

Please visit our Pacific Ashtanga YouTube channel for our weekly 10 minute movement and mediation video.

As most of you know, our community at the Shala is now part of a non-profit charitable organization - The Merit Field Foundation. This is an exciting collaboration with our dear friend and Tibetan Monk, Chusang Rinpoche and his community of Buddhist monks in Nepal and India. It is our dream to create an outreach program that takes the simple teachings of yoga and Buddhist meditation to our communities where people can have a short daily practice to create more peace and happiness in their lives. Without any religious affiliation we hope to create a simple practice of breath, movement and seated meditation and extend it beyond our Shala doors to our friends, families and the larger community.

I invite you to subscribe to our YouTube channel, watch our video and send the link to people you know that do not currently have a practice but may be interested in meditation or would be willing to try something new that might help bring more peace into their lives.

Please join me this year in taking the beautiful teachings and practice we share past the doors of our Shala in Dana Point and into the wider community.

Thank you for being part of our outreach and adventure.

Love - Diana
