Nature is full of things we can appreciate, all of which contribute to a Divine experience.
This sutra refers to a state of viśokā, a sorrow-less, grief-less state that’s obtained by concentration on the Divine.
Viśokā can be understood as a state in which the mind is not focused on the day-to-day, moment-to-moment changing situations, which often produce anxiety, regret and many other afflictions.
Focusing instead on the changeless, ever-present Divine state produces remarkably good results. A spiritual practitioner or aspiring yogi desires results such as a deep sense of peace, contentment, a lightness of being and confidence that we have something deeper and stronger we can tap into. That state of lightness is conducive for spiritual growth and knowledge.

Welcome to the studio. We have been in Berkley since 2006 and are delighted to have you join our community. COME PRACTICE!
We are an intimate yoga studio with a big heart, located in Downtown Berkley, MI.
Our teachings are directly from the lineage of Krishnamacharya.
All classes offer depths into the philosophy of yoga through references of
The Bhagavad Gita and Patanjali's Yoga Sutra, as well as other sacred texts.
Asana, posture practice, is the primary tool we use to explore the mind, body and spirit.
The goal: to be steady and joyful in each moment, each breath and to develop a healing relationship with the Earth.
Breath is the primary teacher.
We are made of sound + vibration.
We tune up our bodies with mantra , Sanskrit and music that is uplifting and healing.
