An invigorating exploration balancing strength and flexibility Unleash Your Potential An invigorating exploration, balancing awareness, strength, and flexibility. Most of us come to Yoga to change some aspect of our lives. However, if we "do" Yoga like we do everything else, we are bound to fail. What we're looking for is not out there. To be effective, our Yoga must be practiced from the inside-out.
Yoga philosophy is crystal clear: the seeds for any change we desire, already reside within us. This dormant energy is Nataraja, Shiva as the cosmic dancer – the power to transform ourselves, and unleash our potential.
Are you tired enough of who you used to be? Through the practices of Asana, Mantra, and Mudra, we'll leave nothing to chance, learning how each breath, in every posture, can become invocation, a powerful catalyst – clearing the way for transformation.
The cage door swings open, and we are free. We had the key all along. A perfect blend of Body, Mind and Spirit, you'll leave with finely-honed tools for transformation that you can apply right away. Bring an open mind, and reveal the yearning heart of a true Yoga Warrior.
Sunday April 5'th 10am-Noon Yoga Spot Wellesly Hills Space is limited, registration requested. Your tuition is $27 in advance Advance registration is strongly encouraged, drop-ins allowed if space permits. Email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 508-254-4530 to signup

New Hampshire Global Mala Sat, Sept 18th 2010 Live Kirtan music will carry us through 108 Sun Salutations A flowing, purifying practice of dedication and meditation. This is a very physical process, yet don't be daunted, This practice is suited for all levels. You'll be encouraged to rest and modify when you need to. John is teaching at the New Hampshire Global Mala: Live Kirtan music will carry us through 108 Sun Salutations A flowing, purifying practice of dedication and meditation. This is a very physical process, yet don't be daunted, This practice is suited for all levels. You'll be encouraged to rest and modify when you need to. In book II.I of the Yoga Sutras Patanjali writes: Tapas Swadyaya Iswarapranidad – Kriya Yoga ~ Tapas is our efforts, doing whatever it takes, the solvent that will dissolve our obstacles ~ Swadyaya is the courage to look within ourselves in the context of these teachings ~ IswaraPranidad is about making a sacred offering, a dedication of your efforts Kriya Yoga is a cleansing, a purification process. That's what this is about, clearing about the old, to make room for the new. The 108 will be led in segments, so that you can join for as many as you'd like. We'll keep it this simple: ~ Look within and make your commitment ~ Dedicate your practice, making it a sacred offering ~ Follow through with your best efforts This is the tested and true Yoga Science of Transformation. I look forward to seeing you there, and seeing the new you on the other side of our Kriya. -john p.s. why 108 Surya Namaskars?
