Sutra Discussion Group Sunday February 12

Dear Sutra Discussers,

We will be back with our monthly discussion on Sunday February 12 at 10:00 at Karen’s house, 336 W Dana St, 94041, until 11:30. Bring your translations as usual.

We plan to continue with Karma in Book 2 with sutras 2.14-2.15. To get the most out of the gathering, it is recommended to read a few translations and commentaries beforehand.

You can also listen to our previous discussions at the website.

See some of you Sunday

Intro to Mysore Workshop Next Sunday, Feb 12th

A week from today (2/12/17) I will teach an Intro to Mysore workshop. In it we talk about what Mysore is and do a short introductory practice. It serves as an excellent bridge to attending a Mysore class, and also a chance for already practicing folks to get a better sense of the intentions behind the practice, and the history.

Registration and information are here.

While this workshop is designed for students new to the practice, if you are already a monthly member and have not had a chance to attend, you are welcome to join us/ audit the class. If you can’t make it this time, we usually offer this workshop 2-3 times per year so you can catch it another time.  It is always nice to have different perspectives there on how it feels to practice in the beginning and over time.

Feel free to pass this information to anyone you know that is curious about Mysore or might enjoy this workshop.


Unclaimed mats

Hi Everyone,

You might have noticed a row of mats in the office by the wall. Those are mats from the back storage area. If you keep your mat there and don’t see it now, please check the office. If you are not coming to YiY temporarily, and have your mat there, please email me:  sabina at yogaisyouth dot com and I will save it. Otherwise, whichever mats are not claimed by February 1oth, will be donated.

Thank you!

More about the Johnny Smith and Kathy Cooper workshop/ regular mysore class schedule

Hi all, Just to announce and be clear. The workshop starts this Sunday, January 22nd and will run through Friday, February 3rd. Normal Mysore style classes (plus Friday morning 615 am Led Primary) will be cancelled during that time. You do need to sign up for the workshop to attend classes during this time period. You can register here.

If the workshop poses a financial hardship for you please do talk to Sabina or myself, as we do have some scholarship monies available.

If you elect not to attend the workshop, please be aware that you are welcome to use your membership to practice during the other yoga classes at the studio. And please know that we do our absolute best to limit canceling the Mysore classes to not more than two weeks each year. On balance, I do like to bring these visiting teachers to the studio when possible, both to provide depth of perspectives on the practice for the students and Mysore teachers alike. Thank you, to that end, as your financial support of these workshops makes it all possible.

Feel free to email me if you have any questions.

Have a great weekend and hope to see you all soon.
