We will email you just once a month to let you know about community service opportunities. Whether its volunteering to read books to youth at area shelters or doing a neighborhood cleanup, serving alongside other yogis is a great expression of your yoga practice. In fact, service is considered a central part of yoga philosophy. Swami Sivananda explains, “By doing service, you purify your heart. Egoism, hatred, jealousy, idea of superiority vanish. Humility, pure love, sympathy, tolerance, and mercy are developed. Sense of separateness is annihilated. Selfishness is eradicated…You begin to feel oneness or unity of life. You develop a broad heart with broad, generous views. Eventually, you get Knowledge of the Self.” Thanks for joining us in the practice of selfless service!
