Yoga Study

This class will review the basic philosophy, theories, and practices of classical Yoga as presented in various ancient texts and epics. Students will learn some simple Sanskrit chants (in Sanskrit) that deal with nature, healing, and well-being. Each session will offer a simple practice to experience the various techniques of Yoga for body, breath, and mind. Please contact Carolyn with any questions.

Going Deeper Into Yoga

For continuing students this class will refine the Yoga postures and include breathing practices and the use of sound, to experience Yoga at a deeper level.

Moving Forward in Yoga

This is a continuing Yoga class for individuals who have some Yoga experience and wish to broaden their knowledge and understanding of this mindful discipline.  This class will offer both Yoga postures and breathing practices which will support each person in his or her home practice. All are welcome.

The Starting Point

This class is for all those who wish to learn about Yoga and to start at the very beginning. All are welcome. Contact Rachelle with questions or to register. 651-442-8049

Yoga Sutra-s of Patanjali

The meaning and practical application of yoga philosophy, as presented in the text The Yoga Sutra-s by the sage Patanjali, will be presented and discussed along with the chanting of the sutra-s in Sanskrit. This ongoing class is for everyone with a serious interest in learning about the true breadth and depth of yoga. Each two-hour class will include discussion followed by a practice at the intermediate level. Please contact Carolyn with any questions.

Vedic Chanting

This class will present several chants from the Veda-s, the ancient and authoritative texts for the original six philosophical schools of thought in India, of which Yoga is one. This offers participants the opportunity to connect with the earliest teachings which formed the foundation of Yoga. The chants will be taught in the original Sanskrit, a language rich in sounds, and the meaning will be provided in English to offer a deeper appreciation of each chant. No previous experience is necessary. Vedic chanting is not singing; it is poetic recitation of beautiful passages that honor the various qualities of the natural world as well as of the pervading spirit that underlies them. Please contact  Carolyn with any questions.

Lessons in Mindfulness

This is a two-session course introducing the concept of mindfulness, an opportunity to learn the basic teachings in order to cultivate an interest in a mindful way of living and being. Mindfulness meditation will be introduced and practiced, along with poetry and movement. Discussion will be facilitated in order to make sense of the teachings. A person attending this course will leave with suggestions on how to begin to introduce mindfulness tools into daily living.
