The Karma Yoga/Teen Volunteer Experience at Kinetix
Why Do Yoga?
Unlike stretching or fitness, yoga is more than just physical postures. This physical practice is just one out of eight aspects of yoga. Even within the physical practice, yoga is unique because we connect the movement of the body and the fluctuations of the mind to the rhythm of our breath. Connecting the mind, body, and breath helps us to direct our attention inward. Through this process of inward attention, we learn to recognize our habitual thought patterns without labeling them, judging them, or trying to change them. We become more aware of our experiences from moment to moment. The awareness that we cultivate is what makes yoga a practice, rather than a task or a goal to be completed. Your body will most likely become much more flexible by doing yoga, and so will your mind.
Yogi’s view their own growth in connection with assisting others. The work itself can be basic and sometimes it can be physically demanding. At Kinetix Teen Yogis are required to assist with maintenance, cleaning, setting up, assisting with classes,
Every work experience, regardless of the specific tasks, is important to Kinetix. We seek individuals who can go beyond the details of their duties, knowing that the functions they fulfill are a vital part of a larger vision.
By approaching all assigned tasks with the that view that they are making an offering of service to themselves,our guests and to each other, the work performed by every Teen Yogi becomes meaningful.
Kinetix would like to offer the studio an oasis of peace; a sanctuary where guests can pause, reflect, and connect in community with kindred spirits. As well, Kinetix nurturing and stimulating atmosphere provides guests with the inspiration to delve deeper into the gift of movement and the possibilities for transformation and growth.
To support our mission we are looking for teens to develop and work at Kinetix. In exchange we offer FREE classes and community service hours.
