Years back, I learned the Zulu word ubuntu. This word speaks to the universal humanity within us all. It translates to, "I am because you are." Or as some say, "I am because we are."
Our recent "Ebb n' Flow Yoga Is" campaign widened my appreciation for this beautiful notion. Since mid-December, we've heard from so many of you about what Ebb n' Flow Yoga means to you. What a joy is was to receive those white board love notes! And what a greater joy it was to share love back on our Instagram account. I am because you are.
Ebb n' Flow Yoga Community Inspiration features submissions by our beloved community. In this piece, Peter Kline shares about his yoga journey and invites other men to reap the many benefits of this practice.
I find that fulfillment, for me, lies in helping people develop themselves - mind, body, and soul. It is easy for me to see potential and beauty in others, and I feel incredibly lucky to spend my time helping people see what I see in them.
The aerial silk swing - looped fabric that freely swivels from a single point - can guide your yoga journey in creative, unexpected ways. The silk offers you new insights on your unique alignment, deepen your stretch and inversions in a safe way, as well as add an element of fun and flight.
Ebb n' Flow Yoga's aerial classes are no cirque du soleil show. Rather, we see these silk swings as a yogi's best friend - trustworthy, supportive, and honest. In this video, studio owner, Kim, demonstrates how the silk swings can support downward facing dog and two variation of three legged dog. So accessible, right? Can't wait to see you in our next aerial class!
Yoga offers a realm of healing possibilities that may be a great alternative or addition to western medicine. This is why Ebb n' Flow Yoga is thrilled that Theresa Murphy, a certified yoga therapist by the International Association of Yoga Therapists, is now extending her wisdom of yoga through yoga therapy. Building on her 20 plus years of yoga experience, Theresa brings over 3000 hours of therapeutic one-on-one work with clients. Yoga therapy is yet another example of the studio's commitment to practice yoga - in all ways, always. Theresa recently sat down with us to share all about this new, exciting service.
