Daily Yoga Classes
Free Yoga on the Mountain
We welcome you to join us for free yoga classes offered daily in the Redwood Yoga Room. These classes include classical Aṣhtāṅga Yoga practices including breathing, meditation, and āsana.
Individual teachers also incorporate their own styles and experience. Free community classes in Yoga Philosophy are offered twice-weekly in the Community Building. All are welcome.
Yoga Theory and Philosophy Classes
Babaji began teaching his students the Yoga Sūtras of Patañjali in the early '70's, before the center was founded. The class has continued in an unbroken tradition, open and free to all since that time. Babaji also started teaching the Bhagavad Gītā at weekly satsangs (or community gatherings), which were held at local schools prior to MMC. Babaji wrote commentaries on all 4 Books of Patañjali Yoga Sūtra and all 18 chapters of the Gītā to support his students' understanding of these ancient scriptures.
Class includes chanting of the scripture in Sanskṛit, reading English translations, studying Babaji's and others' commentaries, contemplation on their meaning, and discussion and sharing on how these ancient scriptures relate to our actions, thoughts and understandings of life. Classes are held each Tuesday and Thursday in the Community Building. Recordings of all the classes can be found online.
