These fleeting moments when time and space cease to exist and you are fully present, totally aware, in observation and in command of your reactions, your body, your breath and your perception...these moments bring you back to yourself.
These moments are cyclical.
These moments are revolutionary.
Our team is skilled and compassionate. Our teachers are trained in many different lineages and dedicated to ongoing education to bring our students the most current, safe and supportive instruction and guidance into our classes.
Our mission is to foster a safe learning environment for the study of yoga and meditation while building community, engaging in service to the greater community and spreading the revolutionary ideals of peace, compassion and unity through the world.
We believe it is a revolutionary act to be of service, to spread love and compassion, to honor deep traditions and cultivate meaningful relationships. Not only is the practice of yoga, which means union in Sanskrit, revolutionary because it requires attention to the present moment, the transformation within the practitioner is revolutionary.
Our world is filled with dichotomies. We have dark and light entangled with each other in all facets of our society. We strive to bring into balance that dark and light, to see clearly what lies before us, to connect with our truest selves and communicate through the lens of compassion and ahimsa, nonviolence.
Revolution Yoga is dedicated to serving its community by:
Offering a variety of dynamic yoga and meditation classes.
Bringing opportunities for deeper learning through workshops and special study programs.
Creating a space for all to feel welcome, seen and nurtured.
Providing affordable options to build greater access to yoga.
Supporting its teaching staff with continuing education, fair pay and peer support.
Contributing to the greater community through fundraising and volunteering with local organizations.
Honoring and carrying the ancient teachings of yoga off the mat and into daily life.
SEVA IN OUR COMMUNITY
To practice yoga off the mat means going into the world with intention, compassion and a yearning to ease all living beings from suffering. Revolution Yoga is dedicated to that purpose and has built a Seva program as a container to serve the community at large.
Seva is a Sanskrit word meaning selfless service and lies at the heart of a karma yoga practice. Our chief Seva yogi is Jennifer Girvin, a Santa Rosa native who has given countless hours back to the community and continues to share her heart, artistry and good nature with all. Jennifer works with nonprofits and community groups in Sonoma County and helps Revolution Yoga choose organizations to receive Seva. The yoga community raises funds, provides services or goods or takes on a service project for each organization during a specific period of time.
