YOGA IN BODY, MIND, AND SOUL - EVENTS
In mystical Judaism the word for “Dew” in Hebrew signifies “divine nourishment in a hidden manner.” That is exactly what is behind each yoga posture: a subtle way to tap into your mind, emotions, and soul. While my main goal is to share the deeper aspects of yoga, I take great care to set up your yoga postures to be comfortable and effective. This class is inspired by Ananda Yoga® and my diverse yoga, fitness, and dance background. Get ready to recharge your body with Yogananda’s Energization Exercises, to use positive affirmations to enhance your yoga experience, and to chant and meditate.

Bhagavad Gita Book Study Group
Join Online Tuesdays 6-7:15pm PDT
Let us take a voyage through the sacred texts together; not to go back in time, but rather to discover how this universal ancient wisdom can spark the answers we need to live more fully today. Explore how these teachings can help in every area of life: work, family, relationships, emotions, spirituality… We will start by studying the book The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita, which shares the interpretation of this scripture by Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the bestselling classic Autobiography of a Yogi. We will start each session with a brief meditation and then review the text from that week’s reading. I will share some thoughts and encourage group discussion and introspection.
