CY Book Club – The First Book
We have a community member approach us about starting a book club with a spiritual orientation through community yoga. We are starting this month and will meet once a month for 3 times and see how if we would like to continue meeting after that. We would like the group to be somewhat committed to the energy of the discussion and keep it moving forward.
We wanted to do this to support ourselves in reading and contemplating spiritual ideas and would enjoy being part of a lively and supportive group.
We thought for our first book we could start with The Yamas & Niyams / Exploring Yoga’s Ethical Practice by Deborah Adele. I have never studied this subject before and assume there may be people who have and can add even more to the discussion. (Book is available at Amazon). This is a book club that is meant to focus more on the ideas that are a jumping off point for discussions.
The dates for the book club are the second Sunday of the Month, starting October 14th.
We are very excited to start this so please RSVP email of interest and commitment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yoga Express for Less
This 45 minute class is Community Yoga’s way of giving back to our students as well as offering new students an opportunity to take advantage of a discounted price of $5 per class.
(No class passes – Monthly/ 5/ 10 class – are NOT accepted for this class due to the already low cost.)
Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the “going-to-sleep” stage. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed. This state of consciousness is different from meditation in which concentration on a single focus is required. In yoga nidra the practitioner remains in a state of light consciousness. The yogic goal of both paths, deep relaxation (yoga nidra) and meditation are the same, a state called samadhi. Yoga nidra is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness.
Starting February, first Sunday of the month, 12:00-1:00 pm
Drop In. $10 donation recommended toward Community Yoga’s charity.
Sacred Women’s Circle:
I see the Sacred Circle as an opening to connect with other amazing women. This is a safe space, where we have a variety of topics ranging from Simple Sharing to Vision Boards, Health Issue etc. We share thoughts, ideas, concerns, and even laughter through this monthly offering….all to open and to engage my mind to interesting possibilities not only for myself, but for the community.
Make a commitment, its not always convenient but make it happen 1 day a month.
Being in these Circles never “just happens.” Your calendar will never just automatically pop up an alert that says “Women’s Circle” without you putting it there. Intention is necessary.
