Join us for a full weekend of special events to commemorate our 14th birthday!
Down Under was born fourteen years ago when a group of fellow teacher training graduates began to practice together in a parish church. Our wonderful students practiced through irregular heat, malfunctioning fire alarms, and the reverend's dogs wandering through the room. They would also meet at teachers’ homes to practice for on-going assessments and to enjoy potluck dinners where yogis, from diplomats to artists, shared their work. These humble beginnings continue to define our community today. With fierce friendships, a burning zeal for truth, and unwavering compassion, our students and faculty are able to discover joy in the practice of yoga amid the ups and downs of everyday life.
Over the past decade, our purpose has never changed – it has only become more clear: To give comfort, inspire reflection, and to ignite movement through the power of yoga in a school that students and teachers across traditions call home.
For our community, movement is not only physical. Movement can be emotional, spiritual, and political. This birthday weekend, let’s celebrate the traditions, and also refreshing authenticity, of Down Under and its people–students, faculty, seva volunteers, desk managers, and assistants–that continue to move our community forward.
