Spira is Latin for breath of life. Similarly, in Sanskrit, Prana is the breath and also the life force energy of the body. These similarities between Sanskrit and Latin resemble our East meets West approach to teaching, studying and practicing yoga. Eastern knowledge of yoga and meditation as well as Western research and understandings of the body and mind are the basis of our curriculum offered in our yoga teacher training courses, continuing education courses, workshops and retreats.

Our mission is in our name and in our logo. Our dandelion represents the hope, desire and intention of the individuals we serve. Our name, Spira, is the root for English words such as spiral, spirit, aspire and inspire. We inspire others in finding what's best for their physical, mental and spiritual well-being through our retreats and workshops. We assist aspiring men and women in becoming active yoga teachers in their community by offering yoga teacher training and continuing education courses. We are a catalyst in the spiraling outward expansion of yogic knowledge and awareness pertaining to mind, body and spirit!

“You are what your deep, driving desire is.
As your desire is, so is your will.
As your will is, so is your deed.
As your deed is, so is your destiny.”

- Brihadaranyaka Upanishad IV 4.5

Desires are the seeds for creation. Whether you are creating your dream job, your perfect life, or your whole reality, desires are the spark that initiates all other actions. Your desire is your destiny, your life's path, your ​dharma, from the Sanskrit root word dhri, meaning uplift or uphold.

Uplift yourself! Uphold your desires for your life! If you desire to teach yoga in your community, Spira will help you unlock your potential through our teacher training and continuing education courses. If you desire to explore your yoga practice, Spira can help you deepen your connection to a yogic lifestyle through local workshops and destination retreats. Learn more about all that we have to offer, what makes us stand out from the rest, and why we may be exactly what you need to continue following your dharma!
