I have been studying the yoga sutras last week with my teacher and this is the most beautiful.
1.36 Visoka Va Jyotismati
Visoka means serenity or having no sorrow
Va means or
Jyotismati means the light, illumination.
Interpretation of the sutra: Mental stability arises when we concentrate on the light in our hearts, that is sorrow less and serene.
When we truly become illuminated by the state of yoga, we enter a sorrow less and serene place, free of mental and physical afflictions. This requires concentration on the light that rests in our hearts.

RETREATS CHANGE OF DATE:
I feel deeply apologetic, But I may have to CHANGE the YOGA NIDRA RETREAT date from the Saturday 21st 2-5pm to the Sunday instead.
Can you confirm with me that this will be ok for you all? We have the new studio going up, and the builders will be here on the Saturday….therefore not very peaceful. They wont be here on the Sunday…..
How is Sunday 22nd 9.30am-12.30pm? Would that suit everyone instead? Plea email to let us know. Thank you.
“Yoga Nidra Retreat”
Yoga Nidra is such effective technique, not only for physical or mental relaxation but also for preparing the mind for the higher yogic discipline.
Yoga Nidra aims to focus the mind to achieve relaxation and increase wellness. Research also indicates that Yoga Nidra can be used as a therapeutic technique to cure psychological disorders like anxiety, depression, insomnia, and psychosomatic diseases.
Yoga Nidra enables us to enter deeply into our superconscious “alpha wave” strata and remove mental and physical tension.
