Every decade unveils a new evolution in Yoga (talking more than asana here). The way individuals engage Yoga in their every day lives lies across a vast spectrum. Sometimes tapping into all the information available can be overwhelming. theYoke unravels this confusion by…

  • sorting through links and resources from asana to pranayama and bhakti to karma yoga and putting it all in one central hub
  • offering a mentorship program for and by teachers and individuals running yoga based non-profits and programs
  • gathering and documenting resources essential to teaching and running Yoga programs
  • providing opportunities to expand your yogic knowledge through courses and Yoga based challenges

The Path

theYoke’s formation arose from a desire to serve yoga teachers, folks heading up yoga programs and students.

Founder, LauraLynn Jansen, began practicing yoga as part of a healing regime while facing cancer at the age of 20. After fifteen years of personal immersion LauraLynn attained her teaching certification in India. Returning to the U.S. in 1999 she cast a mindful eye toward the evolution of yoga in her native land.

Later on a deeper urge prompted her to consult various individuals about the expanding phenomenon and their experiences in the yoga world. She shared the fruits of these discussions with colleagues. Together they decided to address the desires, concerns and wishes expressed – unity, service and sustainability – by forming a non-profit organization called theYoke.

The Root of the Lotus

Embrace the study of Yoga more deeply through this in-depth investigation of the Yoga Sutras. This four month study of the Yoga Sutras with LauraLynn Jansen form a greater understanding of all the aspects of this ancient practice.

“Upon reflecting on our study, I know I learned a lot about the yoga sutras. It's a complex, deep text and I thank you for guiding us through it. I also feel that I have taken another step closer to spirituality in my life. I am beginning to notice more divine energy around me. Perhaps I am beginning to have more of that myself and so recognize and hopefully attract it as well. “ – L. Good, partaker of Root of the Lotus
