regular class pricing/passes
We will weave the Sutras (Threads) through a specially designed Yin Yoga practice. Designed to take us deeper into the heart of our practice and to elevate our minds. Chanting of Sutras, the Gayatri and the Shantipat will be explored along with time for a short meditation at the end of each practice. A perfect remedy on Monday evenings for body, mind and Spirit; as well as a chance to fortify our yoga community with deep teachings and shared company on the Path.
Sherry Cassedy: “I appreciate Pleasure Point Yoga’s approach to practice and teaching, blending a high level of knowledge and support with a deep sense of invitation and light-heartedness.The satsang will offer a welcoming context for our shared exploration.
Studying with Bhavani Maki over the past 10 years, I have developed a love of the yoga sutra and the deeper teachings of yoga.I was honored to work with Bhavani editing her book The Yogi’s Roadmap, Patanjali Yoga Sutra as Path of Self-Realization, 2013. I also enjoyed recent yin training at PPY and restorative with Judith Lasater at Mt. Madonna. I am excited for the opportunity to unravel the sutra together with shared wisdom and light.”
Downside Up: What happens to YOU when your world is inverted?
INSTRUCTOR: Billy Gloege
DATE & TIME: Saturday, July 26th @ 1pm – 3:30pm
Learning to balance on your hands, arms or head may seem like a strenuous physical practice, but with this workshop you will come to understand that the growth is more of a mental practice. We will break down several of the basic postures from the ground up, showing that through slow and careful practice, you will be able to explore these positions that may currently seem unattainable. We will also explore where your inversion path may lead you in the future and set you up for more advanced transitions and variations to come. The fewer expectations that you bring, the deeper your understanding will become. Experience is totally irrelevant for this series as we are all in the same place in our practice…..together. Bring a mat, water bottle and a smile.
