YOGA IS FOR EVERYBODY!
Yoga is For Every Body! Come one, come all. Our mission at School Yoga Institute is to contribute to a more loving, empowered, compassionate, embodied, and unified world. We do this by guiding our students to step into their own unique practice as teachers, healers, and empowered individuals seeking to create impactful change in their communities. The beautiful practice of Yoga is the foundation for the transformational experiences we share together.
‘Yoga’ translates directly to ‘Union.’ This sacred, ancient practice gifts us with the opportunity to slow down, listen, feel, pay attention, release, and explore. Yoga is a full union of breath, body, mind, heart, and soul. We full-heartedly believe in its boundless potential to unite and heal people from all over the world.
We often hear prospective students say: “I don’t feel physically capable to practice yoga.” We always reassure them that our Yoga Teacher Trainings (YTTs) are for everybody and every body. In Western cultures, ‘Yoga’ is often equated to ‘Asana,’ which only encompasses the physical aspect of this incredible ancient practice. Yoga is much more than the hour or two we spend on our yoga mats! Asana is only one of the eight limbs of yoga as laid out by the Indian sage Patanjali, author of The Yoga Sutras. The focus of our YTTs encompasses all of the eight limbs of yoga, and goes far beyond flexibility and strength. Our true mission is to help our students achieve union, on and off the yoga mat.
It’s not to say that the physical postures aren’t an important part of the yoga experience, they definitely are! But at its heart, yoga is about what the postures teach you — compassion, resilience, patience, and greater self-awareness. If you’re someone who has spent your life feeling like you’re “not a yogi,” we would be honored to help shift your perspective on that. This practice goes far beyond the physical realm — it is a true exploration of ourselves, our emotions, our patterns, our needs, our fears, and our dreams. Our Yoga Teacher Trainings hold a strong intention for personal transformation. In this way, our courses are designed not only to provide students with tools to share the wisdom of yoga with others, but also to look at their own lives from a spiritual perspective.
Our greatest passion as a Yoga School is to support the growth and expansion of humans’ horizons — physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and energetically. Our intention is to guide students through their own healing journey in order to better prepare them for healing others, letting go of anything that holds them back from what their hearts are truly called to. Together we unveil the essence of life and step into our gifts with strength and grace. Our programs offer much more than the physical aspect of yoga, we offer our students the opportunity to embark on a journey that brings them to a place of inner knowing. We would be so honored to have you join us, just as you are: our next yoga teacher training student!
