Sutra Discussion Sunday April 14

We’ll be meeting at 10:00 on Sunday April 14 at 336 W Dana St, 94041 (the little house), until 11:30. Bring your translations as usual.

We plan to finish discussing sutra 2.43 about the third niyama, tapas, and maybe start on 2.44, svadhyaya:

Svādhyāya is a compound Sanskrit word composed of svā (स्वा) + adhyāya (अध्याय). Adhyāya means “a lesson, lecture, chapter; reading”. Svā means “own, one’s own, self, the human soul”. Therefore, Svādhyāya literally means “one’s own reading, lesson”.

Sharath at Stanford, April 22nd-27th

Less than two weeks left to this very special event that will take place in almost your backyard. Sharath is coming to Stanford April 22-27th. He will teach Primery and Intermediate classes for 6 days. It is a rare opportunity and if you have never practiced with Sharath and if you have never practiced with over hundred people in unison you should try it, even for just a day. It is going to be very special experience. Please check the link for details and talk to me if you have any questions. I hope to see you there.

Sutra Discussion Sunday March 24

We’ll be meeting at 10:00 on Sunday March 24 at 336 W Dana St, 94041 (the little house), until 11:30. Bring your translations as usual.

We plan to discuss the third niyama, tapas:

Tapas, like most Sanskrit words, means many things to many people.  Most simply, tapas is heat, specifically the kind of heat generated by certain yogic practices, or a certain approach to yogic practice.

Workshop and Mysore practice with Tim Feldmann, March 15-20th

Once again we have a pleasure to host Tim Feldmann, a wonderful and dedicated teacher with incredible knowledge of the body mechanics and movement, and on top of that a great sense of humor. We will kick start on Friday afternoon, the 15th with a more philosophical warm up. On Saturday morning we will dive straight into detailed primary series. This time we are really lucky because Tim will also teach Mysore classes for a few days, until Wednesday the 20th. You can either pick and choose single classes or buy a whole package. We added a new package just for the Mysore practice. Check it out. It is a great opportunity!
