"Yoga Church"… That is what we called the Sunday morning sessions during our Teacher Training :) ...so it got us thinking: Why not continue it as a monthly offering? So, here we are... These new monthly sessions will be centered around key sutras from one of the major texts in the yoga tradition. A sutra is a short aphorism that contains essential teachings from a particular school of yoga philosophy. Sutras are like frozen bits of wisdom that we thaw out, explore, and contemplate, while discussing their value and relevance to daily life.
These conversations will be followed by a practice of Bhakti Yoga, live Kirtan (chanting). Chanting is one of our favorite practices. It drops the mind into the heart and expands the space inside, laying the ground for the guided meditation. Study and explore the cave of the heart. No previous experience necessary, just an open mind and open heart.
The first collection of sutras we will be exploring is The Heart of Recognition - Pratyabhijna-hrdayam.
