YOGA IN ISLANDIA
Ancient Remedy for Modern Stress
Namaste Yogis & Yoginis! Spring has Sprung! Time for RENEWAL
Just returned from a week at the Paradise Island Sivananda Yoga Retreat, during which time I read Amy Weintraubs excellent, motivating book Yoga For Depression A Compassionate Guide to Relieve Suffering Through Yoga. Thousands of years ago, Yoga asanas and breathing techniques were developed to alleviate suffering and prepare the body for Meditation. How can we ever thank Patanjali, the father of Yoga practice, for this life-affirming gift? For readers of this newsletter who suffer from Depression, or constant Blahs, low energy and self-defeating ruminative thoughts, perhaps you would like to be a part of a FREE 2-hour workshop to discuss and share your personal experiences. To prepare for the workshop, I suggest you obtain a copy of the book (Broadway Books - Div. Random House) to learn how the regular practice of Yoga can lift your spirits, move you in the direction of happiness, without pills. If you think this is something you would like to explore, mark your calendar for Saturday, April 17th, 10 am to noon, and call me at 631-348-7199 to reserve your spot here in Islandia; or email me at grac...@gracewelch.com
