老同   Regardless of one's past and uncertain of one's future, Laotong Yoga roots its work in the present and welcomes all as kindred spirits.

老同Laotong Yoga refuses to identify people by their failure or success, weakness or strength, oppression or privilege, or by the choices made in the course of living.

老同Laotong Yoga is rooted in the belief that all beings are  connected through energies of deep awareness, great compassion, and expansive love.

老同The meaning of 'laotong' is drawn from Chinese culture where two young girls were bonded together for eternity as kindred sisters.

老同Laotong Yoga was  launched in 2013 by long time friends Barbara Steinke and Sue Julian.
