an enlightened heart
alicia from the mahasukha center asked if i would post details about a workshop they're hosting this weekend at their new location in westchester. the class sounds interesting enough, and since it's from a place i haven't heard much about, i agreed to help spread the word. needless to say, i'll be checking out one of their yoga classes next week: worldview yoga? hmmm... i can't wait to find out what that's all about!
here's a short blurb on the center itself:
The Mahasukha Center (in Sanskrit "great bliss") provides a wide range of courses including guided meditations, Buddha dharma, teachings on spiritual partners, workshops by nationally known yoga teachers, and informal talks on a variety of subjects.
This Center is a place for people to connect through study, practice and events such as Dharma Flicks, debate nights, dinners and more.
here are the workshop specifics:
Enlightened Heart Yoga with Sarah Class: Bringing Love, Wisdom and Power to Your Practice
October 4th: 10am-1pm; 3pm-5:30pm
October 5th: 10am-1pm
Cost: Suggested donation $50 for whole workshop, $20 per session. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds
The practice of yoga includes far more than just physical yoga poses. In the Yoga Sutra, Master Patanjali describes four attitudes that will greatly assist us to fulfill the potential of our yoga practice. These four attitudes are love, compassion, joy and equanimity. In this workshop, we will learn how to integrate these four attitudes into our yoga practice, and our lives.
Each session will begin with a talk on the four attitudes, followed by an asana class which integrates them.
Sarah has been a student of Tibetan Heart Yoga since 2004, having studied under the guidance of Yoga Studies Institute and Diamond Mountain University teachers. She is a Sivananda trained yoga teacher and teaches in Reno, Nevada.

the center is located near the intersection of sepulveda and centinela, on the way to LAX. it's practically next door to dinah's family restaurant, the home of all-you-can-eat-depending-on-the-day-of-the-week fried chicken, ribs, fish, and spaghetti. that's a thought -- it's been a good many years since i've been there... while i'm there, maybe i'll swing by just to see if the place has changed any...
