The Ultimate Guru - YOU!

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali state that "...God is the ultimate guru ...untouched by previous actions, time or space - and is the teacher of the ancients (1:24 - 1:26)"

Further on in the sutras, when the discussion turns to the asana practice, Patanajli says that "...Perfection in the pose is achieved when the effort to perform the pose becomes effortless and the infinite being within is realized (2.47)"

Lastly, he says in sutra 1:20 that this state of "connection and consciousness" is..."near to those who apply themselves."

I love bringing the wisdom and practicality of the sutras into my own personal yoga practice.

On October 9, 2015,  I will be leading a 2-night/3-day retreat at the Land of Medicine Buddha in Soquel entitled:  Finding & Reclaiming your Inner Power - through a Personal Yoga Practice.

This retreat is about YOU - about you discovering & designing a personal yoga practice that heals you - that feeds you - that takes into consideration your body, your particular requirements, your limitations and your hopes, goals and dreams.  

Many people go to a yoga class to be led by the teacher.  During this retreat each participant will be directed and encouraged to connect with their own unique Inner Teacher - the Guru within - as described in the Yoga Sutras.  

My intention and hope is that everyone comes away from this weekend with a clearer connection with their inner guru - and - as a result, develops a personal practice that allows them to find and reclaim their inner power.

Sound good?  I think so.  Join me if you like.   Write me a note if you're interested.   It will be on our website this week at

Oct 9-11, 2015.  Write me for details.
