"The idea that we're all one is an easy concept to hold on to when you're not confronted with real suffering. But seva means going outside of your comfort zone and extending yourself when you might normally withdraw. I'd love to say everything I do is selfless, but there has not been one experience where I haven't gotten more from it spiritually than I could ever give."
-Seane Corn, Cofounder Off the Mat Into the World
Through trauma informed, diverse, and accessible yoga, we focus on selfless service, deepen our understanding of social justice, and learn to take care of ourselves along the way.
Yoga translates to connection, it unifies our mind, body, & spirit. Seva translates to selfless service or giving service & compassion with no expectation of a return. It focuses mostly on the 'off mat' parts of yoga such as your values, ethics, meditation, and more. Through our practice, we begin to connect our mind, body, and soul. We begin to live in way that is more aligned with our true nature. We are then able to give back to the world around us.
YogiOakley was built to help people realize yoga can be more than a mat and some twisted looking poses. It really is a lifestyle and it really is for everyone. Here we learn on the mat - strength physically & mentally. And off the mat - how yoga is part of your everyday life. We do this through inclusive & accessible classes, courses, education, & our give back model.
Here, we aim to help the helpers find full wellness by learning strength & leadership both on and off their mats. Full wellness to us, is finding balance & peace while working towards mental, physical, and community health.
We envision a world where all have access to coping skills, healthy choices, and safe communities. We want all to grow and thrive with the supports they need.
We value finding & offering love, forgiveness, & grace to ourselves and others. Here, namaste is much more than just part of class, it is a true promise to find & see the light within ourselves & to see & honor the light in one another.
We are glad you are here! Please don't hesitate to reach out with any and all questions:
We hope you offer yourself, love, forgiveness, grace.
