North American Gurukul
What is NAG????
The North American Gurukul (NAG), a non-profit, 501(c)(3) was founded in 2004 by Beverly Roberts Singh, (now Swami Atmarupa) to support the awareness and growth of SATYANANDA YOGA® throughout North America in order to enhance the well being of individuals and society.
Since 2004 NAG has served the underserved worldwide. We currently offer yoga programs in inner city schools, prisons, recovery centers, halfway houses and more!

A central tenet of Satyananda Yoga is selfless service (seva). The act of giving is a powerful tool for personal transformation. NAG has established a seva fund to support seva initiatives across North America. Swami Satyananda culminated a lifetime of intense yoga practice by taking personal responsibility for every villager in his vicinity. He proved that one person can make a profound difference in the lives of many. You can do the same. Create positive change. Push the limits! Give of yourself! NAG needs you! Please consider volunteering for one or more of our many Seva projects! We are in need of volunteers for teaching, fundraising, committees and so much more!
