Sunday Sangha Circular



October 24,, 2017
Step back and feel the magic
You are keeping our Banyan Tree alive


Earlier this week I had the pleasure to cook dinner for and host our lovelies, Angella & Jenna. Cooking for those I love is one of my greatest pleasures; so this was a treat!

During dinner Angella shared that when she initially began practicing at the studio she didn't realize that there was actually a Banyan Tree painted on our large wall. When, as a practitioner, she heard the instruction 'face the Banyan Tree Wall' she just thought it was 'Blue Banyan lingo'.  I found this fascinating and it inspired this weeks Sangha (obviously). Above you can see one of the pictures Angella took of our mural.

Yoga Lovers in Philadelphia Come Together to Find
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.
