Lindsey began practicing yoga in 2012. With a gymnastics and cheerleading background, she immediately was drawn to the challenging poses and flexibility components of vinyasa. Soon, she realized that yoga was much more than the postures and wanted to learn more about yoga as a whole to gain an in depth knowledge of the practice. Lindsey completed her teacher training in the fall of 2013 in San Francisco and has been teaching ever since. She loves to go upside down and “fly” as much as possible, and tries to incorporate these in her vinyasa flow classes regularly.

Anatomy of Emotion

INSTRUCTOR: Mark Haviland

DATE: Saturday, March 17th

TIME: 12:00 – 6:30pm

COST: $175

This workshop is a powerful, interactive exploration of the body – your body and the vast universe of emotions within each and every one of us. Feelings buried alive never die and when feelings aren’t felt and honored they get stuck in the body. This “stuck-ness” can turn into aches and pains and then if not dealt with can manifest into serious illness. All the information will be presented in an easy and digestible fashion with humor and relevance. Anyone is welcome to attend and no prior experience is needed – all you need is a body!

Please wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing. And bring a snack! There will be a 30 minute break for nourishment.

Satsang, weekly

INSTRUCTOR: Sherry Cassedy

DATE: Every Monday

TIME: 7:30 – 8:30am

COST: Free and open to all!

 

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.

Satsang will resume Monday, January 8, 2018, with overview of the Sutra, some Sanskrit basics, and then taking up the second book, Sadhana Pada on Practice.  It is a wonderful time to join in but always feel free to drop in as we share the path of yoga.

“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.
