Construction of the upstairs yoga hall was completed in 2003, along with the completion of the main temple. Yoga classes began on the front lawn during the first visit by Yogiar Ramaiah to the ashram in January 2000. Classes continue today and are given by teachers who I train myself. The yoga hall is also used for youth classes, scriptural studies, discourses and workshops. During Kriya Initiation retreats, it is used as a temporary residence for female initiates.
