Our Yoga

In the spirit of our intention, we offer a wide variety of online classes and workshops based in different yoga styles and levels of intensity. Each practice is a moving meditation. We believe in yoga as a lifestyle and a tradition, and we endeavor to honor the sanctity of the practice. Our instructors offer modifications for all levels and encourage mindfulness to keep your practice safe. We know that the real yoga is what happens off the mat, so our goal is to inspire our students to weave their practice into every moment of their day.

 

Our Students

At bambooYOGA, we welcome practitioners of all ages, shapes, sizes and levels of experience. We honor these differences and celebrate the diversity and uniqueness of everyone. Our goal is to support the individual path of self-inquiry and personal development. Whether you come for the physical practice, spiritual awakening, emotional growth or intellectual refinement, we are here to encourage and inspire you. We know that you are so much more than a perfect yoga pose.

 

Our Aspiration

Our aspiration is that individually and collectively we will begin to see more clearly, to choose more wisely and to love more fully. Our online studio, bambooYOGA, is a special place, where we come together to slow down and reconnect to the deeper peace within. We come to our mats daily, knowing that each day is different and each practice will be different. We come to our mats knowing that our community is strong and kind, that there is always space for another. We share in the blessings of this amazing & life-changing practice and it links us all… we feel it and we want to share it …. Everything Is Connected.

    Dear bambooYOGA community,

     

    At this time, as things are beginning to reopen, there are still many restrictions and limitations on indoor fitness classes. The new requirements will be costly and difficult to maintain, especially with limited capacity/social distancing. We have done our best to preserve our community and are so grateful for the support of our valued members that have been with us online. It has meant so much to be able to “see” your faces and know that we are working through these challenges together. Without the support of our friends, family and community, the challenges of this unprecedented time would have been far greater for us all.

     

    When we look to the teaching of yoga, one Yama in particular comes to mind at present: Aparigraha. This is the last Yama in the Eight Limbs of Yoga. It is often translated as non-hoarding, non-greed or non-attachment. This important Yama teaches us to take only what we need, keep only what serves us in the moment and let go when the time is right. Letting go can be difficult, but is often necessary.

     

    After more than a year of operation at a significant loss, we are no longer able to maintain bambooYOGA. Our resources are exhausted and with no clear finish line in sight we are unable to continue operations. This decision was not taken lightly, but after months of facing significant financial losses we simply cannot continue. As a result, our last day of classes will be Friday April 30 th , 2021.

     

    We are so incredibly proud of our teachers and desk managers. Our team came together to provide community, yoga practice and hope during the darkest of times. We hope we have provided you with the tools and knowledge to sustain and grow your yoga practice, as hope now glimmers on the horizon.

     

    We are so grateful to all of you who have practiced with us online, we could have never made it this far without our beautiful Sangha. Thank you for your understanding as we navigate this difficult transition. In the coming weeks, we will provide you with the contact information necessary to stay in touch with and/or continue to practice with any of our teachers that will still be providing online instruction. We wish you peace, love and light.

     

    With love and gratitude,

    Angela and the bambooYOGA team
