Connect with Sanskrit’s timeless sounds through the chanting of classic ancient texts; The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the Bhagavad Gita. Sanskrit is the language of Yoga. It is a powerful and sacred language. The resonance created when chanting is not just pleasing to the ears but it’s vibratory effects have a subtle effect on our consciousness. The Yoga Sutras is the quintessential text on the practice of Yoga. Through the study of the Sutras we can obtain profound insight into the nature of the True Self. The Bhagavad Gita is a fundamental text that describes all of the paths of yoga that ultimately lead to the goal of connecting with the True Self. The Gita’s rich, poetic language describes yoga’s purpose to bring peace, happiness, and harmony to mind, body, and soul.

No experience necessary, students will be reading from transliterated text and chanting along through call and response with the teacher. Discussion of the philosophy will give the student a better understanding of the practice of Yoga. Texts will be provided.

Kacey Davy is a teacher with the American Sanskrit Institute (ASI) and also teaches Ashtanga & Sanskrit classes at Tahoe Yoga Shala in South Lake Tahoe.

Never underestimate the power of your words, beginning with your thoughts.

Words are an expression of energy. They can be powerful and magical. They can heal and harm. Do you choose your words with great care, or does the mind seem to randomly express itself, often as if on auto-response?

Choosing words that most accurately represent the energy we want to express and using them in positive and constructive ways, as well as having the experience of “no thought/no words” cannot be undervalued.
 
Consider the power, the affect of a single word…. HOPE, PEACE, LOVE, HATE, KILL, GREED.

Explore the energy and magic of words and how to choose and use them with greater mindfulness as powerful tools in daily life. Create your own list of Power Words – words that transform or that best express the energy you wish to convey. Experience  how choosing a different thought/word can change everything.

This is the second workshop in a series offered by DeeDee Boies in acquiring tools to help make life more Fun,
Inspiring, Rewarding and Easy – her acronym for living a life on FIRE. Attendance of the first workshop “Create Your Own ToolBox for Life” isn’t necessary to benefit from this next workshop.

DeeDee Boies has been teaching meditation for over 10 years. She is a Certified Life Coach and is dedicated to helping others more fully enjoy and appreciate life while being all that they can be.
