Frequently Asked Questions

What are the goals of the program?
To take tools, practices and lessons from our time on the mat into our daily lives.
Why is it important to practice off the mat as well?
Asana (the physical postures) are only one of the eight limbs of yoga. To practice yoga more holistically, it’s imperative to integrate that which we accumulate on our mat, into our lives & into the world.
Where should I start?
Any video is a great place to jump in, as they are all creation with the intention to begin at anytime.
How often should I try a new Off The Mat Practice?
As often as you can! Remember, you can always work on fully integrating just one first. Slowly add on when you’re ready.
What will I gain from these lessons?
You’ll gain holistic integration of the yoga practice beyond only asana (physical postures).
Describe some of the tools I’ll take away from these sessions.
Mindfulness Introspection Creativity Self awareness Compassion Empathy Trust Service Understanding of self & others
Is this program for anyone, even if I’m pretty new to yoga?
Absolutely! Anyone can try these practices on at any point in their lives.

A perfect explanation, I myself always want to put myself in a box, I struggle a great deal with black and white thinking, I have discovered it’s not always that simple and that’s ok, what’s important is I do what is right for ME… this video definitely inspired me, thank you Kayla 🌸

My current morning routine feels really stagnant. I’m just outgrowing it spiritually, so I really enjoyed these ideas.
