blog

Yoga, contemplative practice, people and community. These are what we are passionate about, that move us, that keep us doing what we are doing and that makes SYL what it is. Our blog is a reflection of how we share here at SYL, the people we meet, who we invite to teach and importantly what we see as important in directing our awareness to see how we move in the world. What is a yoga studio if not somewhere you can let go from the world, find a part of you that can be nurtured and then work on that in daily life. Our articles reflect this. Hopefully some of these words resonate.
