Just like yoga, community is about connection and unity.
Merge the two together and their power is amplified, allowing us to feel safe and supported in our journey.
Cultivating a sense of connection within a community is essential for our well-being, and helps us to live more compassionate and inspired lives.
It’s impossible to separate community and yoga; whether you’re practicing alone or in a large group, you are part of a worldwide network of likeminded and beautiful beings, whose connection transcends imagined boundaries of race, religion or nation.
This is one of the many incredible things about yoga; that something so personal can unite so many people.
The Yoga Sutras describes social observances to live a more compassionate life in harmony with the world around us through Yamas and Niyamas providing the foundations of the practice.
With this comes a sense of union, humility, respect and gratitude, qualities that have an immensely positive impact on our social ties.
In practicing yoga, you become part of an ancient and sacred sharing circle, and actively taking part in this communion reminds us that we are never alone.
Having this bond imparts an even deeper and valuable sense of belonging, allowing us to support one another throughout the rollercoaster of life.
