Living In A Material World

International Health & Healing Loft

Would you like to practice yoga in Daytona Beach on a regular basis but believe that you cannot afford it? On the contrary I ask how can you not, afford yoga? Yoga is easy to leave a space to budget for and with IHH Yoga Loft finding a space for Daytona Beach yoga just got easier.

International Health and Healing Yoga loft in Daytona Beach is a donation based studio.What does donation based yoga studio mean? In short, it is a pay-what-you-want place for yoga. The suggested donation is a sliding scale of $6-$12 per class. Yoga Loft does not turn anyone away for a lack of funds. Those who can give more will help balance out those who have less to give. We are always welcoming new students.

I prefer this model of yoga studio and have secured the Yoga Loft as my new Yoga H”om”e. I was introduced to this dynamic while I was in California some years ago. Yoga to the People in Berkeley was packed with yoga students taking advantage of this offer. Yoga to the People addresses the fact that yoga is being priced out of many people’s reach which is in direct conflict with what some consider to be the spirit of yoga itself.

In The Yoga Aphorisms, Patanjali explains that limitations are imposed in us by the material world. According to The Yoga Aphorisms, when we identify ourselves as our name or title, our body, our possessions, or reputation, we are denying our true identity. Our culture often tends to equate low income with ignorance. In actuality, this false identification with the material ego based world is the central act of ignorance. Our life situations become unsatisfactory when it loses it’s vibrancy, freshness and sense of wonder in exchange for the chase to short lived pleasures.

In our current economic times there are many things that demand our attention, time and money. How much of the stuff that you juggle in your world do you really need? Sometime I get overwhelmed with the spells of frustration from our material world. This unhealthy nonsense of consumerism preposterously torments the emotions of my self worth. Yoga has opened my awareness to how simple it can be to respect and honor myself by connecting to the spirit.

Yoga takes you on a journey to develop yourself with healthy inner connection. Yoga helps to develop focus on yourself. You earn the respect of your inner spirit to reconstruct the self. Creating the foundation for true to ability to take charge of your spirit with discipline, time, and willingness. Honoring the respect of your spirit encourages everything else falls in line harmoniously.

Yoga is an amazing form of exercise that helps strengthen, stretch and de-stress the body, and focus and decompress the mind. IHH Yoga Loft strives to make it possible for everyone to do yoga regardless of economic limitations. Yoga is meant to help strengthen and stretch your arms and legs, not cost you one! I am thrilled to be able to promote this mind set of the yoga culture in Daytona Beach. International Health and Healing Yoga Loft is located at 209 S. Halifax Ave, Suite 104, Daytona Beach, FL 32118. Thank you for supporting our intention to offer affordable yoga classes to our community.
