YOU ARE ENTERING SACRED GROUNDS, PLEASE ACT ACCORDINGLY.
The Newtown Yoga Center is a trauma aware and kindness based studio.
What does that mean? It means that many but not all students attending classes have various levels of direct, indirect and complex post traumatic stress.
Our " job " as students is to cultivate the culture of kindness and welcome everyone in with a gentle heart. We do not always know the stories of the people sitting beside us in class, nor can we make assumptions. All we can do is be respectful, compassionate and empathetic.
Life is tricky and everyone is doing the best they can. We are all fortunate to get to enjoy each others company and share this practice of mindfulness and reach towards peace together.
