Applying Yoga Teachings to Your Everyday Life


Online Class with Chase Bossart of Yoga Well Institute and 

Local Discussion Group with Jeannie Turner


The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali outline the process and results of the transformation that can take place in your life when you follow this path. The text comes alive when you work with a knowledgeable teacher who has experience applying these principles to everyday life.  I’ve worked with this text with various teachers for decades. The last few years, I’ve been studying the Yoga Sutras with Chase Bossart of Yoga Well Institute. His approach is accessible and practical for the student, and based on solid scholarship and study with his teacher T.K.V. Desikachar. He is offering an 8 week introductory class on the Yoga Sutras. I'm offering a free local discussion group as an additional opportunity to explore and apply the teachings to yourself and your life.


Here's The Yoga Well Course Description:


There’s a lot of talk about “Yoga off the mat.” While Yoga is a great physical fitness activity and a wonderful meditation tool, what would your life look like if you lived Yoga? What does “Yoga off the mat” really mean?  Yoga, above all, is an experiential process of self-observation. In the Yogasūtras, Patañjali tells us what Yoga is and what happens as the result of Yoga. Through studying the  Yogasūtras, you will learn what that looks like.  In Yogasūtras in Action, you will explore the applications of the Yogasūtras and how they relate to your everyday life.  You won’t just study Yoga – you will live it.


There are no prerequisites for this class. General knowledge of the practice of Yoga and a desire to study ancient text with an experienced teacher is preferred.


Location: Zoom (free online video conference), which allows you to take classes wherever you are in the world. Classes will also be recorded and made available for replay via your Student Portal.

Please Note: Webcam is preferred, but not required to participate. A dial-in option is also available.

Discussion group with Jeannie Saturdays 10:00-11:00 am March 28- May 2  Free!


I’m offering the local discussion group so we can explore the implications in depth and support each other as we apply these teachings in our lives.  It’s and opportunity to create community among us who have found a home in yoga and on our island.


“Jeannie's participation over many years has been marked by insightful comments from real world experiences. She adds incredible depth to my classes in practical, easy to understand ways and I learn a lot from her. I'm very excited that you will have the opportunity to explore Yoga's teachings with her. I'm sure it's going to be very meaningful.”  Chase Bossart Executive Director of Yoga Well Institute
