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.”
Lotus Workshop: Om Mani Padme Hum
INSTRUCTOR: Kelly Metcalf
DATE & TIME: Saturday, August 16th, 1-3pm
The Lotus Flower grows in still water. It is said that the mind, like the Lotus, will only come to full bloom within stillness. In our desire to be good students, many of us increase the challenge and pace of our asana practice. While movement is an essential way of releasing tension, the asanas are tools toward self-realization as yoga is a path toward meditation. Join Kelly in this 2 hour workshop to return your awareness to your crown center, your right to know, to intelligence, to humility, and your right to harmony. We will join together to remember how to become one with a force greater than ourselves, without losing ourselves. Lotus will begin as a strong asana practice, then move into hip openers and lotus preparations. In creating a perfect platform for stillness, we will culminate with an extended crown chakra meditation. Please bring a journal and pen.

This workshop is an opportunity to indulge in all the flavors of You. To simmer in your own experience and let it take you to where you need to go.
The hours of practice will weave together to create a complete transformational journey, taking your practice to another level of deliciousness!
