124 Yoga Lane, Nirvana, USA – A Place to Call Home

It is commonly accepted that our teenage or adolescent years are when we blossom into the person that we are meant to be. That during these times we begin to see things in a more mature, educated manner in order to develop a more realistic view of the “way things are”. But for me, this mindful, life altering change is happening now, in my late twenties.

I owe this growth and realization to yoga. I have been practicing and teaching yoga for many years, but it isn’t until recently that I’ve honored the practice of yoga enough to truly adopt the theories into my thought process, and essentially my life. Yoga is not about the stretching, or funny poses (headstand, backbends, eagles…I still can’t do), but instead is about honoring the body and finding the place inside ourselves that we can call home.

I truly believe, upon talking to people, that a lot of the restlessness we feel in life is due to the fact that we don’t feel at home in our bodies. When things go wrong, or when things are turned upside down, we feel lost. This is a place we have all visited and can relate to – where do I go, what did I do wrong, what could I have done differently? But when we feel at home in our bodies, that is security. When things go wrong we are okay because we are home and we feel that love for ourselves, life and the people that decorate it.

Yoga teaches that no matter where you are or what your obstacles, you can find union – you can find yoga in your breath, body and mind. This is your home. Yoga is home. I have heard others call it an addiction, a fad, a religion, the easy way to exercise (hah!), but it has nothing to do with how my muscles look or how thin and flexible I am. In reality it is about building confidence, love, admiration and strength. Through Unique Yoga Events I am trying to share this truth.

FREE YOGA! Why Small Businesses Should Give Back

Today I posted on Unique Yoga Events’ Facebook wall that we would be holding a free pop-up class at a local state park today. Intrinsically I know that giving back it good. It is something we are taught as children. However, I don’t feel many businesses are involved in giving back to their communities. This is a shame considering that small businesses represent about 98% of all employers and employ 50% percent of the labor force. Imagine what we could accomplish if every small business in the state gave back to their community?

The reasons for giving back are abundant, but here are mine:

Appreciation of Community and Customers

Unique Yoga Events supplies the entire state of New Jersey with quality teachers, yoga events and more. We have many, many people to thank for this. If it weren’t for the local businesses that allow us to promote Wedding Yoga and Children Yoga in the stores, there wouldn’t be nearly as much awareness about these services. Our customers are a huge reason we remain successful as they refer us to their friends. I am also thankful for the family, friends and instructors of Unique Yoga Events that promote us. These free classes are an honorary tribute and thanks to these branches that make up our success.

Promotion of Yoga

One of the fundamental reasons for establishing Unique Yoga Events was the desire to provide yoga for everyone, despite age, gender or physical capabilities/limitations. Free classes encourage individuals to get out and experience yoga without risking the financial investment of joining a studio. Many of our complimentary events will be outside as well. And you know how UYE is a huge promoter of outdoor yoga!

Inner Satisfaction

I give back because it makes me feel good. And I like teaching yoga. Running the business prevents me from teaching as often as I would like, but by giving back I open up opportunities to meet the community myself and teach.

Spread the Love!

Finally, I give back because I really feel there isn’t such a thing as too much yoga. I’ve discussed the benefits of yoga in previous blogs before. Yoga promotes over well being while strengthening our minds and bodies. Who couldn’t use more of that?

My last thought for small businesses: Figure out what you have to give, who you are thankful for and GIVE BACK! What are you waiting for?
