ABOUT

We want to INSPIRE you!

Devata is an online community. It is a space for fitness enthusiasts, health junkies, artists and musicians, yogis, adventurers, entrepreneurs, culture connoisseurs and life lovers to come together and discover inspirational and informative content.

Our Story

In 2016 we launched Devata Active, our online membership-based Yoga & Fitness Studio. Our goal was to make it as easy as possible for you to take great care of yourself by providing a wide variety of class styles in an affordable and convenient format. We approached a group of highly trained and sought-after instructors from the fields of personal training, yoga, health and dance, and got to work on creating quality videos for our members to enjoy anytime, anywhere!

 

Inspiration comes from many places, and we soon realized that we wanted to do even more with our platform. Committed to supporting our community in its diverse scope of passions, we began to add to our offerings. We now host noteworthy guests on our podcast, organize live music showcases with emerging artists, coordinate international retreats and trainings, and best of all, we come together from all around the world to do so. We are proud to provide Devata as a continuously growing team of influential and admirable thinkers, dreamers and doers.

Why Devata?

Devata is a Sanksrit word, the ancient language of yoga. It translates to “to shed light on” or bringing something from the darkness of the unknown into the light. Here at Devata, we believe one of the beautiful things about being alive is there are always new things to discover. Whether it’s picking up a new skill, traveling to an exotic location or continuing to explore new internal landscapes, there is so much to learn and experience. We want to support you in getting out there and experiencing all that life has for you. Thus our motto- “Practice Anywhere. See The World.”

We are so happy you found us and look forward to building something beautiful together. Please connect with us. We love to hear from our community!
