I. You shall love beauty,
which is the shadow of God over the Universe.
II. There is no godless art.
Although you love not the Creator, you shall bear witness to Him creating His likeness.
III. You shall create beauty not to excite the senses but to give sustenance to the soul.
IV. You shall never use beauty as a pretext
for luxury and vanity but as a spiritual devotion.
V. You shall not seek beauty at carnival or fair
or offer your work there, for beauty is virginal
and is not to be found at carnival or fair.
VI. Beauty shall rise from your heart in song,
and you shall be the first to be purified.
VII. The beauty you create shall be known as compassion and shall console the hearts of men.
VIII. You shall bring forth your work as a mother brings forth her child: out of the blood of
IX. Beauty shall not be an opiate that puts you to sleep
but a strong wine that fires you to action, for if you fail to be a true man or a true woman, you will fail to be an artist.
X. Each act of creation shall leave you humble,
for it is never as great as your dream and always inferior to that most marvelous dream of God which is Nature.

"I attended Life by Yoga's classes in a past Harlem location, while vacationing in NYC. From the time I entered the space I was impressed. I can still remember how it felt just walking in - it was great... calming, very thought through, warm & inviting. The props provided were in good condition too. Hey it was my first time practicing yoga and while exploring plenty of yoga spots in NYC - I was told about Life by Yoga's special difference by a friend. During the classes I was walked through each pose in a very patient & compassionate way. They were attentive to my needs, and as well as to the needs of the others in the class.
As a novice - so many of the yoga stretches were way beyond my capacity lol - but I was given modifications, specific to my body structure and at the end of classes left feeling challenged, refreshed, enlightened and spiritually activated.
So for my entire 6 week stay, I kept going back for more. You betcha'... every time I return to NYC, wherever they're located, I will absolutely be found attending Life by Yoga classes. Definitely one of New York City's best kept secrets" - Rodney V Payne.
