Dear Yoginis

South Side Yoga presents now NEW
Yoga Philosophy and Lifestyle Series

Join us for our first Yoga Philosophy and Lifestyle Series starting Saturday September 14th @ 12pm.

Our new lifestyle series offers a beautiful opportunity to dive into “YOGA beyond the Asanas” (in our classroom and at home) and learn about the philosophy and wisdom of this ancient practice that we all have come to love so much. Ideal for everyone who is interested in expanding their understanding of yoga and deepening their experience about what it means to practice a “yogic lifestyle” in our modern times. Also, this workshop could be a wonderful “warm-up” for all our upcoming teacher training interests, as well as everybody, who wants to go deeper into the subject of YOGA, but cannot participate in our upcoming Immersion next year. These series will be taught as a 5 week workshop and centered around a book which will be picked, presented and discussed over the course of the workshop.

Our first series of workshops will be based on the book

Living Your Yoga
by Judith Lasatar, PhD. PT

Lasatar, a yoga teacher for more than 30 years and one of our highly respected teachers nationwide with several book publications, uses the wisdom from the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutra to take the reader through a journey to explore how to deepen your relationships with yourself and the world around you
through yoga practice.

Our classes will be structured around discussions of the readings, how the concepts resonate with us and how Lasater’s ideas could impact our yoga practice. Each session will include identifying ways to incorporate the concepts into our lives and yoga practice which we can work on between classes.

The first class will be held on September 14th at 12:00 pm. At this session, we will read and review the introduction and first chapter, and then create a plan for practicing the concepts in between our sessions. You aren’t required to read anything before our first meeting. Please bring something to take notes on. Depending on how many students are interested, we can either order the book together as a group or you can order it individually online.

This first class series will take place over 5 sessions held at 12:00pm
on the following Saturdays:

9/14, 9/28, 10/12, 10/26 and 11/9.

Cost for the entire series is $50, or you can register for individual
sessions for $15.

Our lesson plan for the entire workshop :

9/14 – Session I – Introduction – topics include how to have a meaningful practice and finding beauty in everyday life

9/28 – Session 2 – Yoga Within Yourself – topics include Discipline, Letting Go, Self Judgement and Courage

10/12 – Session 3 – Yoga and Relationships – Part I: Compassion, Fear and Control

10/26 – Session 4 – Yoga and Relationships – Part II: Patience, Attachment and Aversion, Suffering and Impermanence

11/9 – Session 5 – Yoga and the World – Greed, Service, Connection, Truth, Nonviolence and Love; and series conclusion.

Please register with our coordinator Susan under [email protected], so we can start planning for your participation.

We are so looking forward to having you share this beautiful workshop with us…
