New Seekers

Important Update:

The Siddha Yoga Meditation Center in Atlanta,

in consideration of the public health concerns with

the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak,

will suspend center operations indefinitely.  

All satsangs and events are therefore cancelled,

while we continue to assess the situation.

We wish you and your family good health.

You are warmly invited to engage with the Siddha Yoga path website

during this time and always, for powerful sadhana support.

Optional Orientation

All are welcome.

If you are visiting the center for the first time, we welcome you to attend an informal orientation program.  This is a special time to learn about the Siddha Yoga practices, and the different elements of the program. Orientation will be held in the "quiet room," the first door on the left after the shoe rack.  

Orientation is held the first Saturday of each month at 7:00pm before the regularly scheduled Saturday evening satsang begins at 7:30pm.  

To speak with someone about orientation, or ask any other questions, please email us at orientation@symca.com

Dress Code for Siddha Yoga® Meditation Centers

 

Honoring the Sacred Environment of the Meditation Hall 

 

An aspect of Siddha Yoga culture is to truly honor ourselves as well as others. We honor the inner as well as outer expression of the Self. One way we embody this is by dressing appropriately in the sacred space of the meditation hall. We honor the hall, ourselves and the Siddha Yoga teachings by looking our best during the learning sessions, chants, and satsangs held in the meditation hall. Here are the guidelines for dress to follow in Siddha Yoga® Meditation Centers. These apply to teens and children as well as adults.

 

In the sacred environment of the meditation hall:

  • Please wear nice, clean clothing. For example, dress pants and nice short-sleeved or long-sleeved shirts; also dresses or skirts that are knee-length or longer. For a dress, shirt, or blouse that is sleeveless, kindly wear a sweater or shawl to cover the shoulders. 

 

  • Dress modestly at all times in the meditation hall: please avoid wearing shorts, clothing that is sheer or tight-fitting, short skirts or dresses, or low-cut blouses or dresses.

 

In public areas within the center:

  • The hall dress code above provides good guidance for the rest of the center spaces.  Here we wish to reiterate that:

    • Skirts and dresses should be knee-length or longer.  Yoga pants and leggings need to be covered with a skirt, dress, or tunic that meets the knee-length requirement.

    • Please avoid wearing tank tops, exercise clothes, shorts, tight-fitting or low-cut clothing, and short tops that expose the stomach.

    • Novelty buttons, T-shirts that endorse political causes, and T-shirts with slogans or pictures that are vulgar, depict violence, or are offensive to others are not permitted.

  • Jeans are permitted when offering center cleaning or similar seva.


 

Thank you!
