Support us in Seva activity
Seva comes from the Sanskrit words saha, meaning “with that,” and eva, meaning “too.” Thus, seva means “together with”, "dedication to others", "service". When we focus on others, our world expands and we increase our capacity for connection. It is the concept of selfless service that is performed without any expectation of result or award for performing it, to benefit other human beings and animals and the society that they live in. In practicing Seva, Atman Yoga serves others by donating an amount of each booking to help organisations like Chloe Orphans in Bali, Greek Animal Rescue and more others
