The Bhagavad Gita
Offered once a year in January. The Bhagavad-gita is a conversation between Arjuna, a gifted warrior about to go into battle, and Krishna, his charioteer. In the course of giving Arjuna all manner of spiritual and material advice, Krishna explains karma, the self, the Supreme Self, the purpose and varieties of yoga, the difference between our self and our physical body and how to live life in the best possible way. The Gita appears as a central chapter in the Mahabharata, the history of greater India.
This 8 session course will meet Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:15 pm. Next course begins January 8, 2019. The course will require weekly reading and the purchase of a text. It will be a seminar format where we will question, discuss and perhaps even debate. Sure to enrich your understanding of yoga philosophy. Limited enrollment Register Here
Offered once a year in September. The earliest philosophical roots of yoga are found in the texts of the classical Upanishads, which are about 2,500 years old. This tradition of mystical yoga teachings continued in the later Upanishads about 500 years ago. The Upanishads offer a vision of an interconnected universe with a single, unifying principle behind the apparent diversity in the cosmos, any articulation of which is called Brahman. If you are curious about the philosophy of yoga, then take a journey to its source. Come together with a small group to explore the Upanishads. This 8 session course will meet every Tuesday evening from 7:00 to 8:15 pm. The course will require regular reading, the purchase of a text and will have a seminar format, where we will question, discuss and perhaps even debate. Sure to enrich your understanding of yoga philosophy. Register Here
Partner Yoga Workshop
Celebrate Valentine’s Day Weekend with this fun-filled workshop. Partner Yoga brings people together through sequencing, touch, and breath while encouraging mindfulness, trust, and communication. Your partner for this special class can be a fellow yogi, a friend, family member, or significant other. If you’re not bringing a fellow yogi to attend with you, we’ll pair you with a fellow yogi. A unique yoga memory. Offered once a year around Valentine’s Day, this two hour workshop will be led by Tracey and Beki this year.
Awaken Your Inner Warrior Workshop
Led by Spiritual Warrior Tracey. Warrior poses are strong heat building poses. They teach us that fierceness exists not just to destroy, but also to cultivate in us the strength to achieve peace with our own inner challenges and doubts. Explore the structure and dynamics of Warrior 1, 2 , 3, and Peaceful Warrior, Humble Warrior and Fallen Warrior. Warrior poses challenge and test us, but, by doing so, nurture in us not only strength, but stability, steadiness, ease, focus, confidence, faith and courage. These traits help us on our yogic path towards perfect peace. Rise up and flow with your fellow spiritual warriors.
