“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened.” ~ Buddha
Our Intention The Finger Lakes Yoga Alliance is dedicated to cultivating a regional community that supports teachers and students to explore and share the path of Yoga. By uniting the various yoga traditions represented in our region, collectively we can enhance and expand the quality and quantity of offerings.
Why an Alliance? In a society that tends to promote competition, it is refreshing that we engage in a practice about union. Everyone, teacher and student, has so much to share and through collaboration we believe we can strengthen our hometown yoga satsanga and create a strong regional community.
As FLYA grows we hope to help studios and teachers host more workshops and events in our region, attract leading instructors from around the world, and make yoga accessible for all by providing scholarships to students to help with future learning and growth. We couldn’t be more excited to start this journey, and we hope you will join us in this large mission to continue to enrich this region’s yoga and wellness community and offerings!
