Our Values


Ahimsa (Non-Violence)

Non-violence in thoughts, actions and speech is an essential part of our sadhana (spiritual practice). It is important for us to perform our daily duties, both work-related and personal, at school holding ahimsa mnbprinciples in our hearts.

Seva/Karma Yoga (Selfless Service)

We strive to practice selfless service as a part of our sadhana (spiritual practice). It is our goal to do our daily duties at school holding the principle of Seva in our hearts and performing our duties without expecting recognition or benefit from our action.

Lifelong Study & Practice

Yoga holds vast ancient wisdom that requires patience and time. Our staff and teachers, as well as students, are encouraged to continue lifelong studies and practices, aiming to achieve the ultimate goal of life through yoga.

Sadhana (Spiritual Practice)

Spiritual practice is the essence of yoga. We put our best efforts to practice sadhana in our thoughts, actions, words and emotions through the practice of ahimsa, seva and continuous yoga studies and practices.

Samadhi (Enlightenment)

Yoga holds different meaning to each person and we may hold different purpose in studying yoga. No matter the reason behind your interest, the goal of yoga is to uplift your spirits, bring your mind to a higher consciousness and ultimately reach a state of “samadhi” (enlightenment).
