Evolution: This is Yoga
Often in our yoga classes, we talk about the evolution of our practice. We move, stretch and breathe to expand our hearts, clear our minds, and find ease and joy in our bodies. No two practices are ever the same, because we are in a constant state of progression.
Like our yoga practice, our studio is in a constant state of evolution, too. This year, we opened up to a heartfelt re-examination of just what we are here to offer you, as yoga teachers, as a studio, as a space where people come together to practice in mutual support. We realized that, under our noses, our core purpose has grown and evolved, and we are excited to share it with you, on our new website, in our emails, and, of course, in our classes!
Our Reason for Being
Our purpose – our reason for being – aligns with who we really are as teachers and yogis. Consider this: we are bombarded with images of “perfect” yoga. You know, perfect bodies, on perfect beaches, doing perfect poses. Instagram and juice cleanses. But that isn’t us. And, more importantly, that isn’t most people who walk into The Bindu, week after week, rolling out their mats and losing themselves in concentration, practice, relaxation, and maybe a few laughs.
Yoga is about so much more than having a perfect body and doing perfect poses — and so we have decided to speak out even more about that, and use our studio to promote a healthy, realistic image of what yoga is.
Are you ready to evolve? Let’s leap together! Ok… here it is, our newly-charged, heart-centered, zap of yoga goodness coming right at you . . .
This is Yoga
We believe that yoga helps us be the best versions of ourselves.
- Yoga is not about perfection; it’s about authenticity.
- It’s isn’t about beauty: it’s about being your best.
- It isn’t about pretzel-like poses; it’s about your breath.
Through asana (physical movement) you stretch and strengthen your body, but you also get to connect with, and grow, areas of your brain that are essential to you being you.
Not only will your body get an incredible treat, but yoga invites you to connect with yourself on much deeper levels.
Our teachers are passionate about honoring YOU and they are highly skilled, giving you the tools you need to joyfully work at your own level, while challenging you in a way that is safe and honors your particular needs.
