REASON #2: Unlimited Potential – Yoga is Service in Action: The number one feedback we got from last year’s conference was that there wasn’t a feeling of competition at the Accessible Yoga Conference. Instead, there was the feeling of a family reunion, a mutual respect and support that was unlike any other conference out there. There is a lot of work to be done, and we can’t waste time knocking each other down. Let’s come together, join forces, and watch our service expand.
Sevice, or Karma Yoga, is the key to making yoga accessible. It’s not that we have to teach yoga for free, it’s that we come to our teaching, and our practice, with a quality of selflessness that is at the root of the yoga teachings. This selfless service inspires us to make yoga available to many more people, because it’s the focus on others that shows us how we need to adapt and adjust yoga to fit our students. For example, you may not need to adapt asanas for your own body. But, when you start teaching yoga to people with different bodies, and with limited movement, then the need becomes clear.
Accessible Yoga is becoming a worldwide movement of yogis who want to share their gifts with everyone. We invite you to become a part of our movement. If we come together in the love of serving others through yoga, then there is no limit to what we can achieve.
