Yoga Sutras Study Group with Kimberly Vest

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are one of the primary texts of yoga. If you are looking to take your practice beyond the mat, this course is for you. The word sutra means “thread” and these brief, concise threads weave together to outline the complete system that is yoga.

Each class will focus on three to five sutras and break down the meaning of each. You will also learn to chant each sutra with proper pronunciation and each session will end with a short meditation. You will gain a deeper understanding of how this ancient text is not just a manual on yoga philosophy, but also a manual to help you better your life.

No previous exposure to the Yoga Sutras is required. All that is needed is a sincere desire to go deeper with your yoga practice. A copy of Swami Satchitananda’s translation is suggested. There will be homework each week to enrich your experience.

Please contact Kimberly (206) 200-7849 if you have questions. All ages welcome, please pre-register, space is limited. Six-week course, fee $70.

The Seven Steps of Vibing with Jeanmarie Paolillo,
author of The Vibe-a-Thon

Do you believe you can have what you want?

Life is filled with infinite possibilities, and yet we often hold ourselves back from the very things we most desire. But by tweaking our perception, we are able to move in the direction of our goals. Vibing is the art of aligning your internal world with what you want, and then mindfully creating it. It is a practical approach that draws from Eastern philosophies as well as scientific research, and provides a step-by-step process that will lead you from dreaming your dreams to living the life you have always dreamed of.

Join author and yoga teacher Jeanmarie Paolillo for a deeper understanding
of creating from the inside out; a peek into the mind and how it works;
and what she has defined as the 7 Steps of Vibing. You will receive a signed copy of the book; a workshop; tips for beginning and deepening both meditation and mindfulness practices with led meditation at the end of the
workshop; and plenty of time for questions and answers.

$75; pre-register, space is limited. Fee includes a copy of the book (a $20 value)

About the Book: The Vibe-a-Thon will bring this broad, practical exploration of mindful creating (and living) to people outside the parameters of the yoga community. As well, it will help expand understanding of the more far-reaching and fulfilling teachings underlying the physical practice within the yoga community. It is a light-hearted book that is meant to be read throughout the course of a month, with weekly exercises and daily contemplations to help deepen awareness and keep the "vibe" up.

For more on Jeanmarie, check out her website, Jeanmarie Paolillo, author of The Vibe-A-Thon, is a senior teacher, teacher trainer and mentor who formerly taught at Yoga Works in New York City. She leads trainings and workshops on asana, the philosophy of yoga, meditation and mindfulness, and the energetic body internationally.
