Self Study-Study of the self

We have learned the importance of self study-svadhyaya.  As Socrates told us “the unexamined life is not worth living.”

Svadhyaya a practice of self study reading ancient text (all) spending time in quiet to research and discern belief, understand context, culture, and modern day applications lends to ones spiritual voice, to one’s own spiritual practices.

Svadhyaya as a practice of examining the self, spending quiet time reflecting, searching and researching your own path, directions life has taken you and what may still lie ahead.  To be open and prepared to receive all these practices are part of the yoga in life–daily life, daily practices.

Join us in the practice, yoga, practice svadhyaya–on Sundays we sit in comfort, gathering together over tea, or beverage, bringing our questions, our past understandings, our learned experiences, sharing our spiritual practices.  It’s a beautiful thing, this happens here, there or anywhere–contact us for more information.



Light and darkness—darkness in the light-intelligence in conscious awareness.  What is guru and who is guru the conscious knows.

‘The one who guides you, the one who enlightens you, as such there is a guru in everyone, as such there is a guru in everyone.’

On Sundays, we sit together and study yoga philosophy/spirituality questions like what is guru, who is guru.  We look to Satchidananda and other gurus, to the guru within to help guide us.

Yoga is more than asana, there is asana in yoga (postures/poses=exercise) that help keep us physically fit.  We sit, we chat, we discuss, we question, and search for meaning and understanding beyond asana.

Join us, this can happen anytime, anywhere.  Please contact us for more information about this or any other services.
