February’s Kunga Theme: Positive Music!

Positive Music with Inspirational Messages

In this month’s classes we honor the great invisible yoga teacher of MUSIC! How does music relate to service!? It offers us many gifts. It has the ability to build community, spreads smiles from ear to ear, moves us to dance, laugh, sing along, and spread joy.

Please enjoy the following quotes on music:

“Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul.” -Santiz

“Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music” – Sergei Rachmaninov

“To stop the flow of music would be like the stopping of time itself, incredible and inconceivable.” – Aaron Copland

“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and cannot remain silent” – Victor Hugo

“Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul” – Plato

What is Kunga?

“Kunga” is a Kenyerwandan word meaning “to serve or help”. The mission of all Kunga Yoga programs is to offer the teachings of yoga as a path of service to the planet, it’s people, and all beings.

The heart of all Kunga Yoga programs is to encourage, inspire, and support healthy living, community building, volunteering, and positive activism. We chose this word in honor of the first group of children that we had the honor of working with, the Mizero orphans of the Rwandan genocide. Our mission is supported by three primary models: Kunga Yoga Teacher Training School: 200 & 500 Hour programs, Kunga Journeys service-based yoga retreats, and Kunga Yoga public classes.

The vision of Kunga Yoga is to connect cultures by inspiring and training individuals to approach their yoga practice and lifestyle choices as an opportunity to serve others, to encourage healthy communities, and to inspire positive activism. Our vision is to connect volunteers, donors, yoga students, and yoga teachers with local and international communities in need.
