YOGA IS...

yoga is…THE HEALING

I believe in the deep restorative, healing capacity within each and every one of us.  I know the yoga mat and meditation cushion to be a place where this healing can occur.

yoga is…THE DEEP KNOWING

I believe we already have everything we need and know what we need to know if we can be still and listen deeply.
I believe that meditation is the game-changer that helps us connect to this deep knowing, this connection to ourself, others and something much greater than ourselves. The result is clear seeing, strength, steadiness, and an ability to live into all parts of our life with vitality, grace and joy.

yoga is…THE AWAKENED HEART

I believe that love is the one undeniable, inexhaustible real thing we can always count on
I believe that kindness matters
I believe we are here now, in this lifetime to help each other
I believe in the fantastic joy of this full, energetic, sometimes crazy life
I believe in the huge capacity of the human heart to grow, to love and to heal

yoga is…THE LIGHT OF OUR OWN BEING

I believe that our practices of yoga and meditation are simply clearing out the clutter we’ve acquired throughout the experience of our life.  As we dive beneath the surface, we clear space for our light and vitality to rise and shine through.

yoga is…A CALL TO LIVE FULLY

Yoga is a journey of health and self inquiry.  In truly understanding ourselves -- our mind, body and spirit, we understand how to connect with our most vibrant and purposeful self. This understanding leads us to understand others and relate to the world around us in more compassionate, connected ways.  A balanced life of health, purpose, and bliss is the result.

WE ARE MORE...

What would YOU say if someone asked 'Who Are You'?

so much more than a job title or a label, or an ethnicity, or a political party, or a life role.  And when we release our tight grip on anger, resentment, grief or fear of what others think, a beautiful self is revealed, untethered from the heaviness of our conditioning and free to simply BE.

I am the fierce lioness and I am her roar
I am the feeling of warm sunshine
I am healed and I am the cure
I am my child’s smile
I am my mother’s warmth
I am my father’s commitment
I am the love from a friend
I am the thrill of movement
I am the stillness in between the movements
I am the glow of the moon
I am the heartbeat
I am service, I am receiving
I am a firm stance
I am a gentle hold
I am the rock and the waves that wash over it
I am grounded in compassion
I am light in the flow
I am joy, unbounded – abiding in grace
