"Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love."
- Hamilton Wright Mabie

For us at BYSYC, the holiday season is a time for community, or kula , tradition, and ritual. We are pleased to share our December schedule of events and hope you'll join us for our favorite holiday traditions. Candlelight classes are back, and we are once again supporting The Brashear Association's Holiday Toy Drive. Raghunath returns to BYSYC tomorrow for a special class (there are still spots available!). Make sure to save the date for our annual New Year: Renewed event on Friday, January 3rd 2020. Details and more goodness below.

FRIDAY, December 6th 2019
6-8:30 p.m.

Advance your physical and spiritual practice with Raghunath. In this special class, you can expect inventive inversions, brave balancing, sneaky sequencing, and tricky transitions along with Bhakti yoga philosophy and call-and-response chanting. Raghunath will demystify advanced asanas and teach appropriate ways to add them to your practice. In true Raghu style, this class is rooted in down-to-earth spirituality and instructions for living a contemporary yogic lifestyle. Change your mind, strengthen your practice, and open your heart. Some yoga experience recommended.

Cost: $50
