Ashram rebranding as “Maha Yoga”

As mentioned in the previous post, the ashram does indeed appear to be setting up shop again using the name “Maha Yoga”. A quick DNS search shows that Valerie Angell purchased the URL mahayogaashram.com on the 10th of July, suggesting that a new website will probably soon appear online. That information can be found here:

Ashram trying to rebrand?

The ashram appears to be in the process of trying to rebrand itself using the name “Maha Yoga” – they recently renamed their Flickr website to reflect this change here:

https://www.flickr.com/people/shivayoga/

Ex-members should be aware that the ashram is still using the full gallery of photos that were taken prior to December 2014. If you don’t want this group to promote itself using a photo of you, email this website and we’ll tell you what you can do. We are currently discussing the matter with Flickr and the OAIC.

 

 

Ashram starts marketing again

We recently received a number of emails from people who feel outraged and distressed by the fact that the Mount Eliza Ashram (formerly Shiva Yoga) is attempting to market itself to the public again (despite Shiva Yoga Inc. being officially liquidated).

The following newsletter was recently sent out:

Of course there is no mention of any of the recent events that happened there, no acknowledgment or apology given to the hundreds of people hurt by this organisation or its leaders – simply a continuation of the “business as usual” policy they applied throughout the whole episode.

Some of the questions people have asked are: who is running the ashram and / or giving Satsang as no names are mentioned? Has Kruckman stepped down? Is the Mount Eliza Ashram still collecting tax free “donations” and if so under what legal body as some of the programs advertised have prices attached, including a $10 entry fee to Satsang and $95 for a meditation program.
