About FRIENDS OF RADHA FOUNDATION
The Friends of Radha Foundation oversees and supports the work of Yasodhara Yoga Teachers and Centres across Canada, ranging from small-scale centres out of teachers' homes, to more centrally located centres in the cities. Yasodhara Yoga Centres expand the idea of yoga beyond the physical, and offer vibrant spiritual communities where people of all ages can work together and live the teachings of yoga.
Open to people from all religious traditions, what we teach and practice promotes values of selfless service, compassion and devotion. Our goal is to bring quality into daily life and Light to the world.
Founded in 1989 by Swami Sivananda Radha, the Friends of Radha Foundation is an associated charity to Yasodhara Ashram Society, and has sister centres located in the US and Europe.
