Golden Lotus Yoga Teachers Association

Established in 1970, the Golden Lotus Yoga Teachers Association (GLYTA) was founded by Yogacharya Oliver, Song of the Morning founder and direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda. Based on the teachings of Yogananda and his organization, The Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF), GLYTA is a dedicated group of yogis whose aim is to assist in the spread of this knowledge of Self-Realization. Each teacher that receives certification through this yoga school has the one common desire to share with others the great benefits which they themselves have derived through their practice of Yoga. Teacher training for GLYTA take place once a year at Song of the Morning over the course of nine months, giving students a deep immersion into yoga philosophy and practice, and an intimate familiarity with the essence and mission of Song of the Morning Yoga Retreat.

The ClearLight Community 

Located on the beautifully forested land owned by Golden Lotus, part of the 800 acres on which Song of the Morning is also located, each of the community's 72 lots has uniquely sylvan characteristics. The Community encompasses the loftiest ideals for a balanced, God-permeated life as passed down by Golden Lotus' Master, Paramahansa Yogananda; Founder, Yogacharya J. Oliver Black; and Bob Raymer, the Song of the Morning Spiritual Director from 1991 to 2004. For more information about Clear Light Community and Song of the Morning Yoga Retreat, click here.
