"Always do good to others. Be selfless. Mentally remove everything and be free. This is divine life."
- Swami Sivanand
Our intention is to lovingly welcome you exactly as you are, and to provide a safe and comforting space that nurtures and supports you on your personal journey.
We are dedicated to creating a community of love based around selflessness, aiding all of us to better connect with ourselves and those around us.
We challenge each individual to show up as their authentic selves and be entirely present from the moment they walk in to the moment they walk out . We invite you to discover a new way of living in your body and in the world surrounding you.
As you open your heart to love and light, you will receive everything and all that you need. We welcome you.
What does the Selfless Love Yoga logo mean?
What is Selfless Love?
Selfless Love is to love regardless of your own personal needs, without any attachment or expectation of receiving anything in return. It's about living wholeheartedly without the need for any personal gain. It means that whatever you do, you do it from the heart and this comes from a pure place within you which does not have any preconceived notion that you will receive acknowledgment, reciprocity, or accolades in return. You're not thinking about yourself or what you are able to receive, you are only thinking of others and what you are able to give.
Ever wonder what this symbol actually means? Our logo is a combination of curves, straight lines, and a dot all intertwining with each other and serving as multiple deeper symbolizations within its simple design.
When looking closely, you will see the design can be shaped into the letters SLY, which represents the name itself - "Selfless Love Yoga."
The dot at the top of the symbol (orange) represents the "absolute state," which is know as the fourth state of consciousness - absolute peace and bliss where one is able to connect with the divine, or higher power. This point also serves as a representation of the starting point to our journeys (on and off of the yoga mat).
The multiple curves serve as a reminder of our many states of consciousness that we can experience throughout our lives. Our journeys are also infinite, which is why you will find an infinity sign right after the starting point (indigo), showing that your first step can be taken in any direction you'd like and the possibilities of where you take your individual consciousness are endless.
It is also imperative to remember our true essence of LOVE, so you will find that the hook of the "L" connects with the infinity symbol to create a heart.
There is a small hook at the end and no actual ending point. This represents the truth in there being no completion to our evolution and that the soul is limitless energy.
The sacred Om symbol was used as inspiration in making this logo to indicate that everything is deeply connected. Om is all encompassing, the essence of ultimate reality, and unifies everything in the universe.
