Welcome to Blue Light Yoga
NEWS & THOUGHTS
The richness of yoga is found when the practice follows you off your mat. For eight sessions over a four month period, join me every other week after my Monday 9:15 class to embark on an exploration of how to bring our yoga practice into our every day lives. Honing our understanding of our asana practice as a means to a greater end, the 9:15 class will lay the groundwork for a rich hour-long group discussion on how to find a greater sense of freedom and authenticity in our ego-driven culture.
Together we will read Dr. Mark Epstein’s latest book Advice Not Given: A Guide to Getting Over Yourself in which he uses the Eightfold Path as the road map for spiritual and psychological growth, a way to deal with the intractable ego. Each session will focus on a limb of the Eightfold Path: Right View, Right Motivation, Right Speech, Right Action, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness, and Right Concentration.
Founder of Blue Light Yoga, Georgia Reath, is teaming up with art historian Katy Smith Abbott to offer a dynamic and culturally rich experience in Tuscany.
Join Katy and Georgia in the rural hills of Tuscany at Spannocchia, a self-sustaining 1100-acre organic farm committed to honoring and preserving the traditions of Tuscan living.
Georgia will offer a daily vinyasa flow class and one afternoon, she will offer an asana workshop. Katy will offer three art history classes that will set the stage for her to lead the group on walks and museum visits in San Gimignano, Siena and Colle di Val d’Elsa. The group will also visit a nearby vineyard and monastery. (Yes, there will be mixing of wine and yoga!)
Georgia is a magical teacher. Her classes are challenging, yet she infuses them with kindness and encouragement for every student. Through intelligent and creative sequencing, she builds each class like a work of art. She is compassionate, thoughtful, and as real as they come.
One of my all-time favorite teachers! -Beth Reisen
