Books + Yoga

Reading is a tool to deepen our awareness, while yoga is a tool to embody the knowledge we’ve learned. Books + Yoga combines the two to promote a transformed self for an empowered community. Join us for a two-hour monthly study group focusing on BIPOC authors and texts that bring us closer to collective liberation. We will discuss the book and then integrate the inner-standing with an Asana practice.

Why Yoga?

Yoga is a spiritual practice originating with Hindu sages and mystics in Ancient India. The Sanskrit word 'Yoga' is derived from the root 'Yuj', meaning to join, yoke or unite. In the Yoga Sutras of Patañjali, he describes yoga as the path toward yoking the self with the divine. The goal of Yoga is to attain liberation through union with our own Divine Consciousness. The practice of Asana allows us to synthesize experience into embodiment.
