Liberation from the Kleshas:

A Workshop with Lisa “Asha” Rapplisa_seated1

Sunday, May 25th


(and Potluck Satsang immediately following at Satya Yoga!)

Join the much-beloved Lisa Rapp, in town from Hawaii for ONE CLASS ONLY, for a workshop exploring release and liberation from the Kleshas. Only through understanding our obstacles are we able to shed unnecessary habits, lead ourselves down a path of exploration and accountability, and free ourselves from all that shackles us to suffering.

Our asana work will be grounded in a discussion of the cycle of suffering (Samsara) as presented by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras.

Lisa will interweave the teachings of Patanjali so that together we can walk the path to self-understanding, love, and appreciation, while holding ourselves to whatever fires we face in our kleshas. Asana practice becomes a laboratory for our research and discovery. We’ll look at why we practice, how we practice, and how we can realize a full potential from practice.
