      Our Story

      Yogamu 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. This showing how one nature comes in different colors but it also reaches from the ancient teachings of yoga into today’s 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.
