Sunday Sangha Circular



July 10, 2017
Enhancing life exponentially with every yogic action 
Know that when you live in Yoga you serve yourself and your loved ones to the highest degree.


Chant Camp wrapped up a few weeks ago - a wonderful annual 'stay-cation retreat' offered by Jake Miller at Blue Banyan. At the onset of this magnificent week I had just finished reading a most wonderful book by Atul Gawande titled "Being Mortal". This book looks at the intersection of medicine, medical intervention and technology & our inevitable aging process. This year in Chant Camp Jake focused on the Sutras, particularly Sutra 1.1, 1.2 & 1.3 .

events & workshops

BIG \'V\' little \'\'v\'\'
Join Sophie on Tues Aug 22nd for a deep dive into Vinyasa Yoga. Get the scoop on the hows and whys of both BIG 'V' and little 'v' vinyasa. We will look at physical alignment of the shapes that comprise 'the vinyasa' (little v) as well as how to tap the full energetic potential that lies within the flow. We will discuss the linage of Vinyasa Yoga (big V) and how it came to be that a Vinyasa class is defined by connecting Asana through a vinyasa "flow". Vinyasa translates (loosely) to 'mindful placement' - This workshop will transform how, where and why you 'place' your mind and body during a Vinyasa Practice.

Inner Peace at Blue Banyan Yoga

By Paul Rowe, Pennsylvania Homes

Ten years ago there weren't any consistent yoga centers in the Mt. Airy area. Although there were a handful of wonderful teachers living in the area, they all traveled away from home to teach. Recognizing this, founder and director Sophie Simpson rose to the occasion for her community and started Blue Banyan Yoga studio.
