"Loka" is a Sanskrit word that means dimension, world, or plane of existence. I picked this word because we come from all walks of life; with different cultures and religions and a variety of vocations and hobbies. One thing that we have in common is the desire to live vibrant, healthy and more balanced lives. When you arrive at Loka Studios, we welcome you in just as you are in this moment... and next week we'll welcome you in just as you are in that moment. If you can show up... we can welcome you to the Loka Family.
Our logo is a fusion of the Hawaiian "Honu" or turtle and the Sanskrit "OM" symbol. The Hawaiian sea turtle is the symbol of longevity, peace, good luck, humility, long life and the spirit within. The honu is also a family guardian. The Sanskrit OM symbol is a conveyance of sound - the sound of life. Emitting the A-U-M sound from the vocal chords, is mimicking the harmonic tone of all creation. It also conveys many triangular principles like: creation, sustaining, destruction / waking, dreaming, dreamless states / dawn, midday, dusk.
We are the manifestation of the OM symbol, this conduit between heaven and earth. This "being human" is what connects us together as one human family, with the honu as our guardian. Gathering together in this one place, as family, to experience wellness is "YOGA." Welcome home!
