Our motto at Sanford Yoga Center is Journey With Us. We want to give our students a forum to share their journey with others in hopes that it will inspire others to begin their own practice, on and off the mat.
While yoga is a great way to build strength and increase flexibility, it's more than that. Many people who stay with yoga know that there are mental and emotional benefits that come along with a consistent practice. Yoga is really working when you see your relationships improve - your relationship with yourself and ultimately your relationship with others.
Over the course of 2018, we will have a monthly yoga theme. Snap a photo, share your story that relates to our yoga theme for the month, and tag @sanfordyogacenter, #sanfordyogacenter, and #journeywithus.
We're going to kick off our January with a focus on community support through seva, or selfless service. On January 1st, we opened with a donations-based class, giving folks the option to donate to Backpack Pals. We want to continue to celebrate folks who give back to our community. So while the photo and post might not be a photo of you on your mat, it might be a photo of you or someone else out in the community, exemplifying the yogic principle of seva. The winner of our monthly challenge will one free yoga class!
