Cultivating the Mind: An Intro to Yoga, Asana and Meditation
Yoga, in the original sense of the word, refers to the state in which the mind is completely quiet and under control—it is a state in which there is purely Joy. There are many practices associated with Yoga, including meditation, all of which have the purpose of guiding the practitioner towards experiencing that ultimate state. Today the word Yoga is used most often to refer to physical postures, yet Yoga is much more than this and offers benefits to the practitioner that are far beyond that of physical exercise or stretching. In fact, the practice of Yoga is extremely practical for anyone, as it allows one to: - cultivate a quiet mind - strengthen concentration - develop new perspectives - deepen knowledge of the Self within This program, a series of 3 introductory classes, will focus on providing an introduction and foundation to what Yoga is, as well as the practices of asana (physical postures used to prepare the mind for meditation) and meditation. Class Dates: Saturday mornings: December 1st, 8th and 15th 10:30am - 12:00pm Class Fee: $20 cash or check per class – All proceeds go to support Mahayogi Yoga Mission, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the teachings of Yoga in their original and most authentic form. Note: • Please RSVP – spaces are limited! • Bring a mat or towel • Keep an empty stomach

What we're about

My name is Sadhya and I’ll be leading this program. I have had the opportunity to learn and practice under the direct guidance of Satguru Shri Mahayogi Paramahansa, a living master of Yoga. As I continue to learn the teachings of Yoga, in their traditional and originally intended form, I am hoping to be able to share and introduce what I have learned so far through my own firsthand experience of them.
