About

Who we are and where we come from

Mission

The Lotus Seed is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing yoga, movement and art to diverse populations through outreach programs and continuing education.

 

History

Yoga’s popularity has increased in the United States over the last few decades. However, due to the high prices, not everyone feels they have access to the incredible health benefits found from a regular practice.  The Lotus Seed, non-profit organization, offers daily yoga classes on a sliding-scale, donation basis, along with affordable movement practices and community events.  Founded in Mobile, Alabama, The Lotus Seed moved to Portland, Oregon in 2004.  Certified yoga teachers and volunteers collectively share a common mission to make this essential health education available to all people, regardless of race, color, national origin, gender, creed, economics, sexual orientation, disability or body type.  With service at the heart of The Lotus Seed, our classes, workshops and teacher training programs are a beautiful experience that we hope you will share with us!

Preparing for class

Our classes are provided a highly interactive and personalized session. We believe all students should receive individual attention during their practice. This helps students to deeply discover the benefits of yoga for their mind, body and spirit. When it comes to yoga, different people have different needs, which is why we offer a wide range of classes and teachers. Each class will focus on yoga postures, breathing techniques and meditation in order to energize and invigorate your body, helping you to work on yourself from the inside, out. With a sincere yoga practice, you will be able to attain a clarified, centered focused awareness that will allow you to live and dance at your highest potential.

What to wear and what to bring

Yoga is done in comfortable, stretchy clothes and bare feet. It is best not to eat within 2 hours of class. The use of a yoga mat is required. Mats may be purchased at The Lotus Seed and their are some to borrow as well. All classes are an hour. Please be mindful about getting to class on time and sign in the register.
