Mission and Vision

The word seva means “selfless action that serves community.” This path of yoga is committed to surrendering our actions to a higher purpose.

The Purusha Seva Project is committed to the journey of acquiring a deeper understanding of the health and healing benefits of classic Hatha/Raja yoga philosophy and practices. The Purusha Seva Project believes that Yoga, Meditation, and Yoga Therapy can provide a complementary and cost-effective method of alternative and preventive healthcare.

By developing innovative and cost saving programs that serve the people of our communities, and delivering such programs in an accessible and complimentary manner to existing services, the Purusha Seva Project seeks to create communities of healthy, flourishing people.
