Welcome to Your Next Chapter
First, I'm proud of you first pursuing your dreams and goals but most of all seeking knowledge and how to help other’s, safely. Safe Yoga School is based on three principles. Intention, alignment and safety. I have developed the total engagement concept to help you and our students engage their entire physical, mental and higher awareness systems while practicing these disciplines called yoga. My goal is to illuminate the light within others and guide them into health and wellness safely. Leading others into health and wellness safely since 2004, I hope to help you achieve all of your goals and dreams.

In his Guidance to Asana Students, Babuji (Swami Kripalu) writes: "Asanas benefit men and women, young and old, sick and health equally. Practice under the strict guidance of an expert in a pure and peaceful environment.
Avoid straining the body through over-enthusiastic practices. Stop as soon as you feel tired.”
Sarvetra sukhinah santu sarve santu niramayah, Sarve bhadrani pasyantu ma kascid duhkhamapnayat
May everyone be happy;
May everyone be healthy;
May everyone be prosperous; May no one be unhappy.
Om santih, santih, santih!
Om, peace, peace, peace!
Message from Troy:
Yoga is a journey. We've all heard this before, but it’s true. As a type A, ego-based, entertainment personality, I never dreamed this would be my life.
I am proud of you for making this commitment to be here now. You are standing on the precipice of your life. I have found the greatest rewards through the humility, service, and devotion of sharing yoga with others. Giving is truly the greatest reward.
I make the commitment in this training to challenge you, push you to new heights of knowledge, understanding, and to walk beside you on your path of transformation. Thank you for allowing me to share what I have learned.
Yoga is also a science. Results (life changes) are replicated in a controlled environment (class room) on a variety of test subjects (students) over thousands of years. When structured in a specific formula (Breath, Body, Mind, Movement, Union, Awareness) results are irrefutable. Yoga in not magical, mystical, nor does it require a leap of faith. The proof is in the results achieved by discipline, repetition and dedication. May your dedication be a guiding light for those who are in the experiment called Yoga.
Jai Bhagwan –
Victory to Your Divine. Troy Cox
