we heal ourselves to heal the world
We practice: at the beloved Karma Teachers studio, a beacon of light in the world of selfless service. We dance and chant and spin and sing, holding space for ourselves and our loved ones to heal. We dive deep into our blockages and ask the hard questions, trusting in the Love that will guide us from within.
We teach: from a deeply nourished place, acknowledging and prioritizing our innermost needs. We recognize and transform the shadows within ourselves, so that we may guide others gently along the spirit path. We stand strong in our power, holding steadfast to the truth of who we are.
We love: our karma community, the joy of selfless service, the teachings of sustainable giving, the challenges we move through together, the darkness and the shadows, the beauty and the light, the play, the play, the play, the musical medicine, the newfound emotions, the deeply connected love that carries us all home.
The awakened fire of Love is the greatest gift that you can give to yourself and your beloved students. It is the most powerful force in the presence of a truly inspired teacher. In this training, we prioritize the development of a deep self-awareness, svadyaya (self-study), personal healing, and conscious growth as a yogi, teacher and human being.
