About the Studio
Yogalution ~ Evolve Mind, Body & Soul®
As the great yoga teacher B.K.S. Iyengar once wrote, “The moment you say ‘I have got it,’ you have lost everything you had. As soon as something comes, you have to go one step further. Then there is evolution. The moment you say ‘I am satisfied with that,’ that means stagnation has come. That is the end of your learning; you have closed the windows of your intellect. So let me do what I cannot do, not what I can do.” This is the essence and mantra of Yogalution.™
Welcome to Yogalution, a small donation-based studio tucked away in the heart of Scottsdale located on a beautiful ranch, surrounded by serene desert. Escape to tranquility, surrender to calm, retreat to peace.
Yogalution calls you to come when you are ready. When you need to replenish, to see, to know. When you need to feel safe, protected and free to express yourself, you find your way. Yogalution is not just a “studio.” Yogalution is a well which holds the water of pure consciousness, and a stable which houses the winds of fearlessness to conquer the impossible.
I teach Yoga. I teach students to unify their breath with their movement. I teach students to focus, “to stretch passed their limits,” and free themselves. My classes are open to every level of student. Each practitioner will be challenged regardless of experience level. Through teaching the integration of mind, body and spirit we surpass the potential we think we have and begin to live true, with no borders or barriers. My vision is to create a symbiosis of the powerful asana practitioner and the reflective philosopher; to unite them as one, in every person.
I give back to the global community by contributing 10% of amassed annual donations of the studio to an educational cause or program I am affiliated with.
For the first year of Yogalution’s life, I was connected with a program in India. In January 2012, I traveled to India to visit the Sandipani Muni School in Vrindavan. I contributed 10% of the total 2011 annual donations from the studio, to their program that year. Although I have chosen a different cause for the studio, I will continue to sponsor two of the girls who attend the school in support of their educational, health care and personal needs. I offer a link to the program for others who wish to sponsor a child at the school. I have created The Gift of Hope, a link on my class page that allows anyone who would like to sponsor www.fflvrindavan.org/.
Bhakti Ashram Building Project & Scholarship Fund
A year and a half ago, I visited Bali, Indonesia for the first time. My heart instantly felt at home and I became deeply connected with the Island and it’s people. One year later, I returned with a group of my students, to lead a yoga retreat. It was at our retreat center that I met a man, Sumayana who became my partner.
Suma is a teacher and visionary whose mission in life is to create and direct an Ashram for the young leaders of Bali. This ashram will be an educational institution, residential facility and a fully sustainable community for the youth of the Island.
I have committed to assist in the development, building and scholarship funding for this project. Yogalution will be contributing 10% annually to the development of the school. I will be overseeing the building and execution of the project.
