Ma Yoga Shakti International Mission

A Hindu organization founded in 1979 by Maha Mandaleshwar Ma Yoga Shakti Saraswati, an Indian female guru who immigrated to the United States in 1977. She established ashrams in Ozone Park, New York, and Palm Bay and Deer-field Beach, Florida, and alternates her time between them. She has also organized four ashrams in India: Bombay, Calcutta, Delhi, and Gondia.

She teaches a balanced approach to all forms of yoga hatha, rajah, bhakti, and karma. Devotional services, classes and retreats are held at all centers.

Ma Yoga Shakti has published several books or commentaries, including: Yoga Syzygy, Techniques of Meditation, Shri Satya Narayan Katha, Adhyaatma SandeshSpiritual Message, and Invisible Psychic Lotuses, which the mission distributes. It also publishes the Yogashakti Mission Newsletter. The address of the New York center is 114-41 Lefferts Blvd., South Ozone Park, NY 11420.
