Greetings Kula, my fellow yogis, and community! I am so honored and grateful to be a contributor to this blog and to be part of the explosion of yoga in the southeast. Kula yoga has come so far, and has done so much to expand the practice, philosophy, and teachings of Yoga throughout Mobile and Baldwin counties. I’ve watched the growth over the past year with complete gratitude and amazement. We are so blessed to have an organization that facilitates the growth and accessibility of this ancient art, science, and philosophy.
We all have one thing in common that brings us to our mats again and again: yoga has changed our lives. We begin to discover how awareness in our bodies transforms to awareness in our lives. We develop both willpower and playfulness and learn that asana is but one form of devotion to the Highest—in ourselves and all living beings. We learn that the reason we continuously come to the mat is not because we want to find the perfect expression of some pose. It’s because we desire freedom. Desire brings us to the mat to discover our true selves.
So here’s to yoga, to union, to community, and to each beautiful soul with us on the journey of life.
