Did you ever want to take a break from your life for a moment to just relax and notice what was happening for yourself?

In this series, you will have the opportunity to be in a supportive environment to step back from the business of life & observe yourself, taking time for introspection. Allowing your thoughts/feelings to be witnessed and acknowledged without judgment? 

Together we will explore the yoga sutras to gain insight about our habits and learn practices that develop self-understanding & acceptance. Clarity is gained to help shift defeating behaviors & self-awareness is cultivated. We wake up & find our center. The sutras say, as we develop this practice, we open to the light of intelligence and a steadiness is established within. Create a place where you find stability, to be at home in your core or center.

Areas that will be covered in this book study lecture series
*understanding what yoga calls “the causes of suffering” and how they arise
*develop self-observation skills to witness your behavior in how you relate to the world and to others
*noticing how you feel without identifying with the feeling which moves us toward healthier self-care skills
* learn the practice of detachment, letting go of outcomes to be more fully present in the moment
*meditations techniques to increase self-understanding & acceptance
*enhance your understanding of what your communication, intimacy & support needs are

The series will focus on: sutras, discussion, meditation & pranayama but not asana.

Paula’s Personal Yoga Philosophy

As an athlete, I had many injuries through the years. When I started practicing yoga, it made my body feel better. My body felt like it was healing. I also felt like there was some spiritual aspect to the yoga practice, but couldn’t put my finger on how it was happening. Over time, an inner awareness developed and I was able to observe how I was responding in life. It challenged me to actually listen to what my body needed rather that what I wanted. This was happening at all levels of my being, not just the physical aspects. Through the practice of yoga, I have grown to respect myself and nurture the intuitive nature of my heart. We are all born with a light in our soul. When we can see that light, we feel good about ourselves, worthwhile and connected. We are able to give to others and know that our presence makes a contribution in the world. I think yoga can be used as a medicine. My intent is to guide you to use that medicine as a way to see your light and feel worthwhile. This practice will assist you in deepening your capacity to stay focused in the present moment and listen from your heart. So, open the space inside yourself and let your life force flow!
