Upcoming Workshop & Intensive Topic:

The Yoga Sutras: A Practical Guide to Finding Sustained Joy in Daily Life

The Yoga Sutras, written by the great sage, Patanjali, outlines the philosophy and psychology of Yoga, one of the oldest systems of healing and self-care on the planet.

An answer to human suffering, the Sutras clearly address the quality, patterns and functioning of the mind - and ultimately influence the way we experience ourselves, others and life overall. 

A complete guide for living, The Sutras, are designed to help people reduce suffering (such as overwhelm, fear, addiction, anxiety, depression, loneliness, etc..), and create more sustainable joy and freedom in their daily lives.
