Written over 2,000 years ago, the Yoga Sutras provide a framework for empowered living. We will discuss the overall structure and intent of the 196 Sutras, and spend an hour looking in depth at the Yamas ("restraints") and Niyamas ("observances"), and how they can be practiced in modern life to provide a foundation for mental and spiritual growth.

Join us on Zoom Saturday, October 9, 1:00 - 3:30 pm

Led by Brandy Berlin, each of the 3 Sundays in this training begins with a 90 minute Yin practice followed by sharing and discussion where we land content delivered through the practice. We then move into lecture as an introduction to the day’s explorations and break for a one hour lunch. After lunch is a combination of more discussion and sharing, activities and explorations, practice teaching and feedback designed for participants to have an embodied experience of the teachings.
