Teachers   >   Govind Das



In the tradition of "Bhakti/Devotion" Ira Jeffrey Rosen was given his spiritual name - Govind Das or which simply means "servant of the Divine". His path of service and devotion is at the root of his spiritual life- to serve the Love and Spirit that lives in the hearts of all. It is from this place that his teachings and music flow. He is the owner/director of BHAKTI YOGA SHALA, an innovative bhakti-based yoga studio in Santa Monica , California http://bhaktiyogashala.com.

Through chanting Kirtan and teaching Bhakti Vinyasa Yoga, Govind Das's uplifting and inspirational message encourages the process of spiritual awakening- the deconstructing and bursting out of frequently limiting and fear-based social/family/cultural and environmental conditionings and living a fully empowered and creative life centered on love and truth. Govind Das and his wife Radha live a few blocks from the beach in Santa Monica, CA overlooking the Great Pacific Ocean with their 4 year old son Malakai. Govind Das leads Bhakti Yoga workshops,retreats and presents at festivals and conferences in the US and internationally.
