There is much more to yoga than poses, and much more to learn about yoga than how to wrap your leg around your head. If you are seeking more than just the next “advanced pose,” this weekend is for you, but don’t expect it to be about posing.
The Sutras are a record of some of the simplest, yet more profound revelations and practices for exploring human potential. I’ve been studying them personally and teaching from them professionally for over 25 years. Each time I revisit them, I learn something new, or get curious about something I’ve disregarded in the past, or understand myself in a whole new way. This is a layered and multifaceted body of work, one that has always been a source of questions rather than answers. The sutras are a record of scientific findings rather than a list of commandments; a book about potentiality and possibility, rather than morality and sin. Less a text that tells me I have no right to interpret them, and more a body of work that says one can (and should) apply these principles to their lives and be better for it. It is in this spirit that I will present this evening discussion. I guarantee it is a fresh perspective, a new way to look at the Sutras and the possibilities therein.

She is a credible, respected, esteemed veteran of yoga whose reputation is consistently that of a teacher who makes sense of the powerful information, without taking away from the true message.
