“My wish for you is that you continue
Continue to be who and how you are,
to astonish a mean world with your acts of kindness.” -Maya Angelou
Share Our Boundless Love
We look with gratitude to the night sky as October’s full moon reflects her beauty towards earth. Much like our ancestors once did, we marvel at this heavenly body and allow our minds to ponder the mysteries and vastness of the universe.
Pausing for a moment in this wonderment, we invite you to sense into the connectivity of all things. Recognize that all over the globe, millions and billions of living beings are engaged in the same reflection. That what separates us is actually a tiny fragment of that which has connected us for eons past and far into the infinite future. It is not difficult to hold a tiny sleeping child and feel an outpouring of love. Observing a furry creature in the wild, it is easy to feel fondness. Recalling these emotions, can we extend loving-kindness to the family member from whom we feel disconnected, to a group with which we do not fully agree, to anyone we do not understand?
With the gifts of yoga, mindfulness, speech, and feeling, we are the collective that can enact change in this world. Inspired by our ancestors, learning from nature, and seeking deep intuition, may we each extend a helping hand. Together let us see hurt in the world and heal it. As one heart, allow us to raise up the whole and share our love with boundless generosity.
With a deep bow of gratitude,
Your SYI Family

“”I began looking up programs that included all the things I had an interest in and passion for. School Yoga Institute’s program caught my attention right away just based off of what the program had to offer in writing; vegan meals, an immersive nature experience on a permaculture farm in Costa Rica, a unique curriculum with strong emphasis on the medicine wheel. It seemed like a dream and with proper manifesting I knew it would be the perfect way to dive deeper into myself and this journey through yoga.” Read more of Kelly’s heartwarming story here.
