The Haum of Yoga is intended as a place of knowledge about Self, a place for quiet contemplation and inner journey, a place of communication and community.The Haum of Yoga is founded by Kerry Weavind and with a fantastic team of teachers offers different types of yoga and other complementary therapies.
Our goal is to help you reconnect the mind with the body and enhance that communication.We offer yoga for all body types, all ages and all levels of fitness and flexibility - through a full schedule of yoga classes that we want to keep expanding! Our yoga stresses different aspects of yoga in every class - sometimes focussing on alignment, other times foucssing on mental discipline - it can be CHALLENGING, if not physically, then emotionally to help you move through boundaries and empower yourself, and often times the result is a certain calm, as the skill to deal with a challenging life is developed.
Our commitment is to help you develop a greater awareness of yourself down to your baby toe. The different philosophical approach to each style ensures you can find a style that suits your personality.We invite you to meet yourself where you are at and then grow!
We strive to constantly keep learning about yoga and the yogic lifestyle - to practice what we teach, to keep the information fresh and uplifting, and to bring opportunities to you to take yoga to the next level with visiting instructors, workshops and retreats, guided trips to India, teacher trainings and intensives.
There is so much to yoga philosophy. One can theorise to the end of the earth about where you fit in in the spectrum of beautifully interweaving and sometimes contradicting or frustratingly impossible, simply simple philosophy from the beginning.We incorporate it all but most of all, encourage experience. To be a philosopher I believe pulls you out of experience (though in itself is a valid experience). All the theories are tools or tangible utensils for the journey to self peace, but then they must be let go of.
It is the mind we wish to systematically gain control of through yoga to find peace. A quiet mind that is not a monkey mind is a sign of inner peace. Being in the mind is to be out of experience, so our philosophy is to have an experience of your self through the body, expressing joy in your body toward self realization that is simply being equal to joy.
A beautifully represented philosophy about non-philosophy by a yoga teacher Danielle follows:
“When I read through the philosophies each one makes a kind of sense, but then I think that is still, in the end, unknown. We spend so much time trying to solve these unknown questions and put the answers into boxes that we try to live by, but in the end the questions are still not answered. Maybe we aren’t meant to know the answers. Maybe yoga and pranayama makes us simply at peace with our lives and makes us think clearer and feel more content with the body that functions better.” Maybe.
We try to give you all the possibilities so you can find your own way.
