Our values are our Sankalpa – what we stand for and what we live for

The Practice is not a ‘go with the flow’ kind of operation. A fundamental aspect of the Tantric path is Sankalpa, which means setting a firm resolve, a clear direction and sticking to it. Our values are that Sankalpa, something that all members of The Practice Family embrace and embody on and off the mat.

These values give us guidance, inspiration and a kick in the ass when we need it. These values are what we stand for and what we
live for, no matter what.

  • We practice what we teach
    The Practice team are authentic and radiant examples of the essence of Yoga, both on and off the mat. We are role models for humanity and living proof of the power of wholehearted commitment to practice, to Yoga and to living consciously.
  • Keep tradition alive
    We are unflinchingly committed to keeping the sacred fire of tradition burning in the modern yoga world regardless of the consequences. We ‘know’ that by committing to the Masters and their sublime teachings that they will commit to us and our cause.
  • Get it done
    Practice team members never put off until the next moment what can be done in this moment. If we fuck up, we own it, we fix it and we don’t waste time giving excuses or blaming others. We understand that the price of greatness is personal accountability and so we act from that place, always.
  • Evolve or die
    If we are not growing, then we are going backwards. No one at The Practice goes backwards. We hold ourselves and each other accountable to this rule, each seeking out change and actively generating the force of evolution in all aspects of our lives.
  • Don’t get too serious
    We take our practice seriously, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Invested in the outcome yet committed to enjoying the journey, our anthem is simple: Laugh, have fun and get the job done.
  • Nothing less than extraordinary
    We believe that everything we do, every task, every teaching, every asana, every breath, every presentation, every conversation, every document created, every floor scrubbed, every email sent, every action, large or small is an opportunity to bring forward the radiant power of our Soul and in doing so, make each moment and every action extraordinary.
  • Take a bullet for family
    Practice members are loyal and committed to The Practice. Each individual is willing to put aside personal inconveniences and petty excuses when a team member needs support, assistance or cover. We know that we are only as strong as our weakest link and that if we want to achieve the extraordinary and change the course of history then we must do so as one solid, united front. You are either in, or you are out. That’s the deal.
  • Our word is our oath
    If we say we are going to do something, then we do it. No excuses.
  • Go the extra mile
    Each member of The Practice family is self-motivated and forward thinking, always a few steps ahead of the game. Blending insight and intelligence, we constantly show initiative rather than waiting to be asked to do something. We believe that going the extra mile, doing the 1%ers is what separates the good from the great.
  • We choose courage
    No one ever achieved greatness by sitting on their ass and hoping that things would turn out well. At The Practice we choose to live and work courageously and never be disempowered by our fears for too long. We are willing to suffer the pains incurred on the way to success, but not the pains of regret for having failed to achieve our highest potential.
