It’s hard to separate a yogi and their practice, and if you do, they will tell you themselves that it’s not always pretty. Their practice is something that in most cases is the most important part of their day. It’s a means of happiness, grounding, relaxing, breathing and simply a time to let go of the things they simply don’t need.
There are many people throughout the world that understand this “yogi language” and find comfort in finding other yogi’s to relate to, even on the smallest things as the importance of giving yourself time to “breathe” in your day.
But what if they could connect as yogis even further? To share in the love of their practice, that for many has opened up space for success in all areas of life, allowed them to love better, be better and show up big in the world. What if we could share this with others to empower them to do the same? Wouldn’t that be powerful? Then, what if you could take that one step further to actually start to raise the vibration of the planet through these actions? We think it’s already happening.
Many studios and practitioners are flocking to join the hitPLAYyoga Community launched in late 2012 to join a movement to connect the Power Yoga Community into one collective energy on a mission to raise the vibration of the planet by spreading the practice of yoga.
“What drew me to want to join the hitPLAYyoga Studio Program was the idea of community, plus I love the idea of making my YogaCasts available to my students. I thought this was an awesome idea. As yoga teachers and practitioners we want to take classes from teachers that inspire us. Now we can give and receive that inspiration on a daily basis on such a larger, global scale no matter where we are in the world. The best thing about HPY is that it expands our individual yoga community beyond the door of our yoga studio. It takes the competition out of yoga and allows us to come together as a greater community on a mission, and that is what yoga is really about,” says Laura Calcaterra, of Big Yoga, Houston.
hitPLAYyoga is also providing a platform allowing students to stay connected to their teachers and studios no matter where they travel, allowing them to maintain their beloved practices that keep them in the flow of life. Laura adds, “When my students or I leave for a trip, we always loose our practice, and this is when we need it the most. Your yoga practice is a way of life, it’s a lifestyle, and it’s our way to plug in so we can show up big in the world. We are so happy to have really powerful answer to provide our community to allow them to stay connected to our studio and their practice from home or while they are traveling. Our students are loving this added connection and we are grateful to hitPLAYyoga for this powerful platform.”
Through the HPY Empowerment Fund, yogis can expand that collective mission beyond our individual practice to make real changes in the world. It allows members from everywhere in the world to come together in a collective consciousness to empower people towards positive change while continuing to make yoga accessible to everyone. They are currently proud to be supporting the Africa Yoga Project amongst others on this mission. “At Big Yoga Houston, it is very important to us to make this practice accessible to everyone and we love being part of the hitPLAYyoga Community that allows us to do this. We also believe in giving back, and now every student at my studio has the opportunity to give back in various ways when they become a member of the HPY Community as part of our studio program.”
