Wednesday, August 12, 8:30 PM Yoga 1 (1 hour)

Thursday, August 13, 7:00 PM Yoga 1

Yoga 1 is a great class if you are new to yoga or looking for a refresher of fundamentals. The flow is slower paced, but can still be quite challenging.

This week you can also join me on August 16th at 7:30 PM for Tranquil Space Arlington’s quarterly book group. We’ll be discussing The Wisdom of No Escape and the Path of Loving-Kindness by Pema Chodron. The discussion will be held in the tea lounge. Tea, cookies, and surprise treats will be provided.

Hope that I’ll see you on the mat!

Tranquil Space Arlington Book Group – August 16

Aug 6, 2015 // by admin // Blog, books, DC, Yoga // No Comments

 

IMG_4239Take your yoga practice off the mat with the Tranquil Space Arlington Book Group, meeting next on Sunday, August 16, to discuss The Wisdom of No Escape and the Path of Loving-Kindness by Pema Chodron.

“This is the process of making friends with ourselves and with our world. It involves not just the parts we like, but the whole picture, because it all has a lot to teach us.” (page 23)

“On the other hand, you could just relax and realize that, behind all the worry, complaint, and disapproval that goes on in your mind, the sun is always coming up in the morning, moving across the sky, and going down in the evening.” (page 26)

“If people are willing even for one second a day to make an aspiration to use their own pain and pleasure to help others, they are actually able to do it that much more. As you become more fearless, your bodhicitta will ripen with each day of your life, which will be of great benefit to others.” (page 64)

The Wisdom of No Escape and the Path of Loving-Kindness is a collection of talks written and given by Pema Chodron. It’s a book that I have continued to come back to since my yoga teacher training. It is full of many truths that I often know and always seem to find I need to be reminded.

Join us on August 16th at 7:30 PM in the Tea Lounge (at our Arlington studio) to enjoy tea, cookies, and lively conversation. All are welcome (reading of the entire book in advance is not required to join the discussion)! This is a free event and pre-registration is not required.

Can’t make this meeting, we hope you’ll join us then for our last meeting in 2015 when we discuss the following:

  • November 15, 2015 - Core of the Yoga Sutras: The Definitive Guide to the Philosophy of Yoga by B.K.S. Iyengar

All meetings occur from 7:30 PM-8:30 PM on the specified date. We hope that you’ll join us for tea, cookies, and cOMmunity.
