Our Story

Yogamu – Yoga M(eans) U(nion) because yoga is a Sanskrit word and means union. Thus now that you know, the word Yogamu reminds you what yoga means. Yoga means union. As a word directly but also as a concept. This makes Yogamu a very short sutra. The word sutra is the same as suture when your wounds are being stitched up. It connects and makes it complete again. Sutras remind you of larger concepts, they are the seeds that trigger all memories about a topic.

Yogamu is the foundation, the union from which and within all reality unfolds as depicted with our flower of life logo. It shows the variety of man by using the 6 human skin tones of the Fitzpatrick scale. Thus showing how one nature comes in different colors but it also reaches from the ancient teachings of yoga into todays problems that fill the news. Thus a return to the source will also be the solution to stabilize everything. That is the story behind the name Yogamu.

Yoga means union – when we understand on a fundamental level the memory becomes knowing and truth. Thus begins your journey of learning with us. Welcome to Yogamu, a very short sutra.

dreams are tomorrow's castles

Who we are?

We are a group of experienced technologists and yogis that are passionate about raising consciousness. We believe in a society that is built on many strong individuals. People that are educated, with both legs on the ground and in great control over their inner states (emotions & thoughts). We believe that our school system needs to be overhauled. Students need to learn how think efficiently think and apply knowledge to the real world. They should also learn how to deal with emotions and become masters over their life. This is why we have created Yogamu. Society needs to outgrow the current paradigms and elevate towards higher consciousness. Yogis can do that. Students that learn with us, will be immersed into a new way of teaching that we call the Constant Curriculum (CC). The CC allows to go deep and broad into many areas of yoga as well as add the needed practice to create experienced and confident teachers. We understand yoga as a path as well as a destination. Yoga, after all, means union. That is samadhi. A state that some believe to be some ancient myth but thousands of yogis all over the world experience as their daily reality. This is the ultimate – Our goal as a school is to help students experience this state of being to radiate it out into the world. As the power of corporation grows and machines with vast abilities are created, we help shaping the future by supporting tomorrows teacher and influencers. They will be the ones that will help corporations to become more inclusive and driven by values beyond money and power. You might smile when you read this – Thinking – Yeah, right! However, once the toughest businessman stops and thinks about the why’s of life, things change. Our students are the ones who become this change in the world. 

What we do?

Our curriculum focuses on the improvement of the human condition. We strive to combine ancient teachings with cutting edge research. Our goal is to raise consciousness by empowering people to become the best version of themselves and get the tools to start a successful career as enabler for a new and more aware world. We are not your typical yoga school. We believe that it is not enough to hold a 200 or 500 hour certificate in your hands or have it registered with some Yoga oriented yellow pages. We believe that only practice and a total immersion into yoga leads to a transformation of the student into a true teacher. Once our students know that their very presence can change lives, they are ready to teach. We reach this goal by working with our students for a long period of time to help them create their own daily practice until their exuberance begins to spill over and turns into teachings that bring joy and transformation to other peoples lives.
