Focus of the Month: October

Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra

Yoga Sutras

Tapas, Svadhyaya, Isvara Pranidanah kriya yoga (II,1 Patanjali, Yoga Sutra)

Yoga in action is made up of 3 ingredients: courageous physical effort, self-study/self-reflection and devotion to the subject (also a surrender of the desire for a specific result).

How did we all get so lucky to find this wonderful path of Yoga? A path which includes a guide book from ancient times, better than all the GPS and Siri devices, a true compass for the soul. 196 aphorisms compiled by Patanjali thousands of years ago are portable and short memorizable sutras, or stitches that connect the dots for us answering timeless and universal questions: What is Yoga? How should the body and mind be in poses? What are the impediments to our happiness? What should we concentrate on while trying to meditate? Can some forms of suffering be avoided? Look for all of the teachers this month to drop a sutra here and there in class, shedding light on these teachings for our collective benefit.

We welcome you to Jaya with open hearts and open minds. We are committed to the highest quality multidimensional yogic offerings and to a continued presence in the neighborhoods we serve.
