Open Sky Offers Two New Yoga Series

Open Sky Yoga Barn’s (OSYB) Fall 8 Week Series began on September 13, running twice a week for two months until November 1. Laura Young teaches Tuesdays from 9:30-11am while Cathy Whelehan leads the mixed-level yoga classes on Thursday mornings.

This series draws from the wisdom of two books; the first is the classic The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. In the second book, True Love, renowned Zen Buddhist monk Thich Naht Hahn offers four key aspects of love described from this tradition and emphasizes that in order to truly love, we must first learn how to be fully present. These sources will help inform, support and guide our exploration of the many ways we may deepen our practices of mindfulness and consciousness through asana, pranayama, meditation and daily life.

Series classes foster commitment to regular practice, establish a sense of connection through community and create a greater possibility for transformation. Series classes are taught progressively, deepening the practice over the weeks so that students can make progress in an appropriate, systematic and evolutionary way. Modifications and options are given for different levels of asana experience. Books can be purchased online through Amazon if interested in following along.

You can sign up for one or both days a week. Missed classes can be made up in any one of Young or Whelehan’s classes at OSYB.
