It takes a village, so the saying goes. Many think of this as a witty response or a cliché to be used when someone needs help. However this is actually a proverb, with its origin believed to be in African or Native American communities. It is a reflection that there is a collective social responsibility to the moral well-being of our community. This phrase inspired my company name because I believe that in this day of individualism and “go alone to go faster,” we forget that together we can go farther.
Village Yoga is a place where we work together to build your practice based on what your unique needs are at the given time. The name came to me as a bit of a brain spasm while teaching one of my Together In Motion classes. Together In Motion is taught for everyone and welcomes those with varying cognitive, developmental and physical abilities. Watching participants with extreme developmental delays practice alongside their “neurotypical” peer, I felt the power of what I was witnessing and thought, wow, this is a beautiful village… and Village Yoga was born!
With small class sizes and person-centered focus, the village concept is woven through each experience and offering. Namaste.
