Yoga first soared in popularity here at Rancho La Puerta and throughout North America almost simultaneously. Although there were many sources of new yoga programs in the United States in the mid-20th century, leader Indra Devi (whom many credit as being the most influential teacher of the time) was here at the Ranch as well as our sister spa, the Golden Door. She even opened her own retreat center next door to Rancho La Puerta.
