Everything is connected
Yoga is the art of relationships. First to ourselves, then to each other, then the world around us and infinitely to our legacy and the collective consciousness. How we live echoes into the world; our energy, our vibration, it resonates from us and imprints on those around us.
We are NOT in this alone. The collective of consciousness is a wave through humanity that moves us all. Community. Serendipity. Destiny. Dharma. Radical alignment. We are all playing a part in a cosmic drama, we all have karma (our lessons, our unfinished business) and Dharma (Our divine work, our purpose) whether we are aware of this or not. The contracts of our souls woven into those around us.
None of this is separate, none of us are separate.
You and I are not random.
“As you navigate through the rest of your life, be open to collaboration. Other people and other people’s ideas are often better than your own. Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.”
- Amy Poehler
We're in this together.
“The most valuable currency you have in this world is the effect you have on others,” Jim Carrey said this.
I like comedians. I think they say absurdly true things which make us reflect on humanity. Comedy is about laughing at our truth, it’s about seeing the light in the darkest corners. It opens us up in ways lecture or deep conversation cannot. It lets the light in.
Because everything is connected, this axiom completes a circle, it brings us back to the initial principle; You are exactly where you are meant to be.
Struggles and heartbreaks are connected to success and growth. Pain and fear are connected to laughter and play. Rest compliments exercise, touch and intimacy connect us deeply to the sentient beings all around, because all of this is impermanent it's most fulfilling to live these principles with passion, humor and depth.
My experiences are connected to yours, all of us, whether we meet or not, we are affecting one another in a very real way.
The practices of yoga, if done with the purpose in mind and at heart can supercharge your energy, help you clear away the fog of your day to day existence, the practice helps you to truly meet yourself.
Through exercise, rest, healing, self study, and self expression, yoga connects you deeply to yourself again and again. The true practices of yoga aren’t about the physical results (which are a REALLY nice benefit to be sure) it’s about discovering the absolute best version of yourself and living ecstatically in that energy.
Everything, everyone is connected and our community aims to make those connections as healthy, inspiring, powerful, playful and deep as possible. Together let us recapture the art of yoga and share the depth and true purpose of the practice.
