THE MOTIVE APPROACH

 

MOVING MOUNTAINS

Moving mountains is no small endeavor. Our approach is simple, but effective.
We’ve developed a formula that is helping our students confidently navigate the mountainous terrain of their lives.

PRACTICE + PLAY = PRANA

PRACTICE

”The way yoga is taught nowadays often gives the impression that there is one solution to everyone’s problems and one treatment for every illness.” — TKV Desikachar

WE STUDY OUR STUDENTS LIKE A MAP. WE WORK WITH THEM TO DEVELOP AND DEDICATE THEMSELVES TO A PRACTICE THAT IS UNIQUE TO THEIR PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND LIFESTYLE NEEDS. WE DRAW FROM EASTERN YOGIC TRADITIONS AND WESTERN SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH TO INFORM OUR TEACHING. AND, WE ENCOURAGE A HEALTHY DOSE OF CRITICAL THINKING TO EMPOWER YOU SO YOUR PRACTICE WILL EVOLVE WITH YOU OVER TIME.

PRACTICE WITH MOTIVE IS: SMART, SPECIFIC & DELIBERATE

PLAY

IT’S NOT ENOUGH TO BE DISCIPLINED. WE MUST EXPLORE, JOKE, IMPROVISE AND TRY NEW THINGS. WE STRUCTURE THIS INTO OUR MOTIVE YOGA OFFERINGS KNOWING WE ARE AT OUR BEST WHEN WE ARE HAPPY. STUDIES SHOW THAT WHEN WE LAUGH IT’S LIKE MEDICINE FOR OUR PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND SOCIAL HEALTH. MAKING SPACE FOR PLAY CAN DECREASE PAIN, LESSEN STRESS, IMPROVE YOUR MOOD, REDUCE TENSION AND ANXIETY, STRENGTHEN HUMAN CONNECTION, REDUCE CONFLICT AND THE LIST GOES ON. REASON ENOUGH!

PLAY WITH MOTIVE IS: ADVENTUROUS, JOYFUL & FULFILLING

PRANA

PRANA IS THE STUFF STARS ARE MADE OF. SOME CALL IT LIFE FORCE, SOME CALL IT VITAL ENERGY. IT’S UNFETTERED POTENTIAL. WHEN WE HARNESS IT, IT’S THE FEELING THAT ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE, EVEN MOVING MOUNTAINS. MAXIMIZING YOUR PRANA IS THE GOAL OF OUR WORK TOGETHER. WITH EQUAL PARTS PRACTICE AND PLAY YOU’LL BE WELL ON OUR WAY TO TRANSFORMING OBSTACLES INTO OPPORTUNITIES.

PRANA IS: YOU LIVING YOUR BIGGEST!
