Practice, Dharma & Brunch

Join Sharon for this deep yoga study opportunity on the third Sunday of every month (no classes in July or August). We start with a practice of deep, long-held asana—-in a combination of yin-restorative styles that incorporates aromatherapy, breath and energetic therapies. The practice is supported by a theme based in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and other classical yoga texts. After practice, Sharon discusses the sutra or text related to the theme and provides a variety of interpretations and applications for daily life. Sweet breads, muffins, bagels and other morning treats provided for all who pre-register. These gatherings are designed to be a mini-retreat—relaxing, inspirational and rejuvenating! Tuition & Registration Tuition: $25 OR 1-class from package + $10 (Included in Yoga for Life Packages) Kindly RSVP at least one week prior to each session so that Sharon can prepare an appropriate number of handouts and brunch items. In order to save your space, please send Sharon an e-mail to sharon@yogamatrika.com or call her (412) 855-5692 and leave a voicemail. Even if you have a Yoga for …
