What’s in a Name?

What’s in a name? The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines Humble as “reflecting, expressing, or offered in a spirit of deference or submission.” Further inquiry tells us that the root of this word is humus – the nutrient-rich component of soil. Merriam-Webster’s definition of Heart includes “the central or innermost part of something.”

With this in mind, Humble Hearts Yoga was named to reflect

  • humility, like humus, enables vigorous growth;
  • the heart center, the core of our being, is home to our sense of self.

The mission of Humble Hearts Yoga is to facilitate yoga practice that opens one to humility and a true sense of self, enabling balance, presence and peace through yoga.
