We believe

in celebrating and healing the gift of our humanity by strengthening and honoring our bodies, releasing our minds from fear and judgment, nurturing our spirits with Presence, freeing our hearts to Love. We experience that there is more to us than meets the eye. When we bring our minds into our bodies (a.k.a. yoga - uniting mind and body) we discover a Presence deep within us. We discover our Divine Nature, the very image of God. We meet Spirit. We touch Peace. We know Love and we experience Joy. Through our practice of yoga we seek to nurture that Presence within our own hearts and minds, within our relationships with other Divine beings and with all things earthy.

We believe

that we are a part of something bigger than ourselves. Humanity is evolving into a new way of life, the only sustainable way of life, that gives full expression to the deepest realities of our Human Nature. Some have called this “The Kingdom of God,” “Heaven on Earth,” “Enlightenment,” the “Tao.” It is all of those things. It is a way that seeks to live in alignment with who we truly are. It is a way that seeks to live in harmony within our own bodies and minds, with one another and with all of creation. It is the way of Peace, Shalom. This way already exists within us, yet has been forgotten and not fully realized. We are not yet what we shall be, therefore, we actively seek to become who we truly are for the benefit of all beings.

We believe 

that Love is who we truly are. Love is whole. Love is perfect, but we look at ourselves and see only imperfection. We don't see the Truth that our "imperfections" are part of the beautiful whole - the whole of Love. Rather, we see our imperfections as cause for shame, self-hatred and loathing. We don't want to feel that way so we work really hard to build ourselves into something we're not. We spend our life energy protecting and defending this self-made self, a self that we don't really like very much, and we come to believe that we ARE that self. All the while we feel like something is missing. It is. It's us. Rather than living our lives from our authentic, True Self, we've been trying to relate to life from a false self. Our yoga practice is about remembering who we truly are...RE-MEMBERing our self-made self to our authentic Self. Our yoga practice is a continual process of facing our fear and shame, uncovering their roots, digging out old habitual patterns of relating to our world, changing our minds, telling ourselves the Truth about ourselves and choosing again and again to Love, over and over and over. It's a practice. Loving ourselves is a practice we wholeheartedly embrace. It is only when we are authentically ourselves that we are able to embody Love in our world, we embody Namaste – “the Divine within me sees and honors the Divine that is within you.”
