Selah is a yoga school for the new paradigm. Selah is a project of the The Greater Mercy Foundation offering teacher training and certification to special populations. We are actively working to provide high school age youth with opportunities to develop their mind, body, and spirit through the practice of yoga.
The definition of selah is truly a mystery. The word selah is the place we can exist where words are not necessary, where we drop from our heads into our hearts. The pure source where we see things as they are. Seeing or knowing of what is already here in front of us and our connection to it. Wordlessness. Knowingness. It is the mystery, and what each of us hears in this moment of mystery that connects us to the divine and to the interconnectedness of all life.
Selah brings traditional yoga education and connection to this mystery that is life to young adults. Our students will be well versed in the practice of yoga both as a tool for living and if they so desire, a path to lead others.
Selah is an outgrowth of the Here to Be Me project that began, with the support of lululemon, to bring youth ages 11-18 the practice of yoga in relationship with daily living. Selah offers high school students an opportunity to get to know themselves deeply over the course of 10 months. We work in partnership with local schools allowing students to earn physical education credits and graduate as a certified yoga instructors.
It is our hope that by bringing yoga awareness to young adults, that they will engage with and mentor others in yoga as a way of living.
