I believe the real practices of the Sister Sciences happen the moment we step off the mat into the world.
For many practitioners, our mats, wherever they are – at the park, at home, at the studio…they represent a safe haven. Our yoga mats quite possibly have seen more released emotions than a psychotherapist’s couch. We feel freedom without judgment to allow our exhausted, sometimes ill bodies and minds to recover. We feel safe knowing our faithful, beloved mats are supporting us.
I am thankful for deep healing which arises from patiently committed, persistently consistent practices. At Prakrti, it is not only encouraged to practice the mantra “Heal Yourself, Heal the World,” my hope is to help bring it to life.
I don’t take it lightly. I believe we are stronger together.
I love our community, locally and globally, and I want to make the many therapeutic benefits of Ayurveda and Yoga accessible to all who wish to receive. In addition to in-studio financial scholarship opportunities and partnerships with doctors, therapists and other healthcare professionals, teachers, and community centers, Prakrti participates in community events and collaborations outside the studio to bring Ayurveda and Yoga to those who would otherwise not have access.
To date, Prakrti has proudly sponsored basketball teams, sponsored and participated in retreats, offered Yoga for Parkinson’s Disease at a local community center, partnered with organizations to provide Yoga for Veterans, guided Yoga for Recovery for rehabilitation programs, taught classes in local gyms, collaborated services with other holistic health centers, and raised awareness and donations for Eating Disorders and Suicide Prevention.
If you have suggestions in which Prakrti can help make our community a little healthier and a little happier, please reach out! I would love to partner up with you!
