Second Thursday of Month / 6:45 - 8:15 PM

Change, transformation, non-attachment, ethical action, discriminative awareness, liberation – these are the themes that emerge in one of the most important yoga texts, the Yoga Sutra-s of Patanjali. This text has powerful lessons for addressing suffering, fear, change, the distracted mind, and relationships at home, work and in the community. Join us to explore yoga philosophy through chanting, discussion and integrated yoga practice (chanting, asana, pranayama, meditation). The lessons will be practical and applicable to your life. Bring a copy of a translation / interpretation for the yoga sutras. (See suggested list below). Continuing education credits available for yoga teachers.
