What is Yoga Village?

Yoga Village is a nonprofit organization in Wilmington, NC. Our mission is to bring yoga to underserved populations within our community. We are striving to bring our community TOGETHER one breath at a time. Yoga Village unites the yoga community with schools, health and human service providers and other community partners to build strength and resilience for all our neighbors in every neighborhood. We're always looking for humans who care about other humans to help us meet our goals; we'd love to have you. To find out how you can get involved, fill out our target="_blank" rel="noopener">volunteer form here. It takes a Village, so we're always looking for interested neighbors/yogis, community partners and yoga teachers to help us reach our goals. If you have any questions, drop us a line! We look forward to hearing from you. For the Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard, meditating "essentially allows him to learn to know himself better and to cultivate an optimal way of being, oriented towards happiness and altruism". Meditation is also "to avoid becoming a slave to the flow of negative thoughts that flood the mind". Because, indeed, many of our thoughts are superfluous, even downright harmful: we dwell on them, we set up disaster scenarios, we anguish... These thoughts poison our minds and take us away from ourselves. They create stress, which in turn creates its share of problems. Meditation is not about fighting these thoughts, but rather about letting go: it is about accepting them with kindness, without being captivated by them. There are many meditation techniques: Vipassana meditation, transcendental meditation, active Osho meditations, Tantric meditations, etc. Full Consciousness meditation can be seen as the "basis" of all forms of meditation : simply being there, in the present moment, without judgment and welcoming all the thoughts, sensations and emotions that come. It allows you to be fully aware of yourself and others at every moment of your life.
