In practicing yoga, it speaks to us in a language that transcends words yet carries messages deep into the heart of our lives, making our lives better and opening us to sharing with others in the most deeply meaningful ways.

We sense the natural desire to deepen our practice and to share the practice with others, because we know it will make their lives better.

We teach because we’re on the path of a conscious life that serves the world, making the world a better place.

We teach to learn - about ourselves, about one another - and to walk the path we are meant to explore in this life.
