Winter Solstice Sunrise Salutations

INSTRUCTORS: Kayla Copeland, Logan Taylor & Sherry Cassedy

DATE: Thursday, December 21st

TIME: 7:00-8:15am

COST: Regular Class Pricing

At the Winter Solstice, the sun literally stands still, reaching the extent of its journey, it pauses and turns. Harmonizing ourselves with the rhythm of nature, at the solstice, we also pause, honor the stillness, and celebrate return of the light.

People around the world and across time have followed the path of the sun so vital to our very existence, and marked the solstice with communal silence and celebrations of light. 

Join us at PPY for a Sunrise Practice to greet the Solstice with chanting, a Sun Salutation flow with mantra, closing with restorative meditation, as we welcome the return of the light in our days and in our hearts.

Pleasure Point Yoga’s Monday morning Satsang is a unique (and free) opportunity to delve deeper into the esoteric teachings of Yoga in the company of one another. It is a great introduction for anyone who is curious to learn more, and an open invitation to revisit and share in the supported space of the Sangha as we deepen our practice.

We are currently finishing a review of Book One (through I.34) to integrate and will be diving back into Book Two in early November. it is a great time for newcomers. Sherry Cassedy will be leading through November 20, and then Aerielle Webber will lead through December 18. Join us.

“Satsang” is a Sanskrit word derived from “sat”, meaning truth, and “sanga”, meaning community. In Satsang, we gather together, in community to seek truth or, more simply, to be with the truth. We create the space with chanting, light, and intention, gentle rituals that help us to dedicate this hour to our study and practice and to one another.

Deepening Our Meditation, Pranayama, & Asana Practice Through Understanding Vibration

This weekend immersion explores & celebrates the profoundly beautiful Indian teachings on vibration. We’ll delve into how they relate to our āsana & meditation practices, & our lives off the mat. Our time together will include asana, breathwork, meditation, chanting, singing, listening, & satsang.

For centuries, Indian tradition has recognized and expounded upon the fundamental truth: that everything is vibration. Over many years the examination of vibration not simply as a phenomenon but as a vehicle through which the human being can experience connection to the deeper pulse and rhythm of life and nature was refined and transmitted. This celebration of the vibrational power of the cosmos reaches its zenith in the Tantras, whose texts and practices are primarily concerned with how to experience, harmonize with and connect to vibration.

This vibration they call Spanda; in the Tantras, vibration is consciousness, it is the pulse of breath, and it is the way to the heart. In āsana, vibration manifests as the pulse that inherently exists within ‘static’ poses that opens, strengthens, and connects us to center. In meditation, vibration is the calm and tranquil mind. Silence itself is a vibration.
