Arkaya comes from Sanskrit word Arka which means Light, Healing and Inspiration. ARKAYA means with/unto the light. It is the quality of the sun that heals afflictions. It embodies the guru (one who dispels darkness) spirit, throwing light on the undiscovered aspects of ourselves.

It is a space founded by Yogacharini Maitreyi where the light of illumination can shine through each one of us. It is a space, where one can embrace all aspects of oneself with love and consciousness to allow the unnecessary to just melt away. It is an organic space where one can synchronize with source and rise to one’s highest potential. It is a space where one can re-connect to oneself and others as well as cultivate healthy boundaries. Get the best of both east and west.

Celebrate a life of nourishing connections , beautiful belonging and infinite love. Find true and solid connectedness and embrace your universality. Connect to many facets of your being and tap into bliss and wisdom. Learn to define success for yourself rather than falling prey to the depression of trying to fit in. Cultivate kindness and discipline. Hone the art of effortless effort.

ARKAYA’s objective is to empower people through the courses , events and awareness programs it enables. Arkaya builds EVOLUTIONARIES around the world.

Feel inspired to rest in and savour your BEING. The centre is devoted to infusing the spirit of self-awareness, which is symbolized by the word ARKAYA. Learn from a rich lineage of Yoga , Mindfulness, Healing, Movement Meditation, Re-balancing Dance and Self work that Yogacharini Maitreyi represents. This is reflected in a healthy eating, living and thinking culture that has reverence for life and the environment.  Welcome to Arkaya and glow from within.
