The word 'shala' means 'home', so you might as well refer to us as Wize Monkey Yoga Home. Why Monkey? Monkeys are incredibly social animals, they have compassion for each other and capable of forming powerful bonds that last a lifetime and that for us resonates with the community. Monkeys can be mischievous at times and we believe that a bit of monkeying around in the house and having fun does good for the soul. Someone once wrote that "we don't receive wisdom, we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us". It might not be obvious at first to the observing eye but in order to open the doors of our Yoga Home for you, there was a journey taken...a long journey of one step at a time and that what 'wize' (with the 'z') stands for.
