Welcome to Living Yoga! We believe that living mindfully - whether through formal yoga and meditation practices or just enjoying the beauty of nature - is the key to living joyfully and compassionately. At the core of our teachings is deepening awareness for personal healing. Each breath, thought, step or action we take in mindfulness contributes to our individual healing and therefore to a more compassionate and peaceful world.

“Peace is present right here and now, in ourselves and in everything we do and see. Every breath we take, every step we take, can be filled with peace, joy, and serenity. The question is whether or not we are in touch with it. We need only to be awake, alive in the present moment.”
