    Dear Student,


    Sutra 1.14 - Practice for long time with devotion & enthusiasm


     Renew your practice with a healthy dose of inspiration.


    We would like to thank Ty Chandler for an amazing workshop and all the yogis who attended to make it a very successful and fun workshop.  Ty's dynamic teaching and energetic pace was an inspiration for all of us. 


    Last year Ty focussed on the shoulders and gave us many tips on bringing more mobility and opening in the shoulder joint, while this year we learnt a lot about the hips. Also another big thank you to Ty for the beautiful chants and the music with us.


    She shared an ancient Sanskrit proverb which said "Constant practice is the source of joy".


    We at the Yoga Studio South are grateful to all our teachers for sharing their light of Yoga. It is with the light of Yoga we can avoid the pain which is yet to come, as stated in Yoga Sutra II:16.


    With gratitude,


    Ruth & Vic

    "Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions, the gates of the soul open." ~ BKS Iyengar
