Mind Over Matter, Heart Over Mind!

LIVE SCHEDULE FOUND HERE!

Yoga: is a practice, way of life, and healing modality that all bodies can do. It helps to balance mind, body, and spirit and supports the integration of all parts of a person. While cultivating a compassionate and loving inner voice, it allows one to sit with self while noticing, honoring, and processing not only the times of abundance, balance, and flow but the harder, challenging, even darker times of struggle, hardship, pain and suffering.  It builds compassion for self, others, and the collective experience both on and off the mat. Pleasure Point Yoga is here for you. We support growth and healing to empower individuals and build a healthy and happy community. Cultivating a lifelong yoga practice requires a sustainable approach and methods which continue to challenge, as well as relax us on a daily basis. Located in the heart of the Pleasure Point neighborhood we serve all of Santa Cruz County. Our dedicated and highly trained teachers are here for you 7 days a week. Whether you are brand new to yoga or have been practicing for years, you will feel warmly welcomed as you step through our doors. Each breath is an opportunity to grow, each breath is an opportunity to change.  A mindful practice, yoga asks us to pay attention, to become aware of what we’re doing while we’re doing it, and to take responsibility for our mind, body and spirit. It is a practice of coming home to what we already know to be true. To support you on your path of well-being, we offer 30+ classes per week.  We are a Yoga studio and loving container, holding space for our community to go inward on a journey deeper to self, to the jewel of your heart, and your soul’s calling.

 

All Levels, All Bodies, All Ways are Welcome Always!

INSTRUCTOR: Sherry Cassedy

DATE: Every Monday

TIME: 7:30 – 8:30am

COST: Free and open to all!

LOCATIONS: Livestream

Mantras, Sutras and Mudras, Oh My!

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.

Come clear your mind and refresh your soul.

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.

We begin each morning with chanting the Gayatri Mantra, the ancient invocation to the Sun. We take up one Yoga Sutra (brief teaching) in sequence each week, chanting and translating the prior Sutras for practice and review, then translating, breaking down, studying the Sutra of the week and sharing how it applies to our lives at this moment. We practice pranayama (breath) and mudras (hand poses) before we settle in for about 5 minutes of meditation to allow the teachings to settle into our bodies and consciousness.
