Yoga Sutras: Freedom From Attachment and Aversion

A free public program with WMYC Director Janaki Pierson.  The talk is followed by instructions in meditation and a group meditation.

In the ancient teachings of yoga, we learn that emotions such as attachment and aversion can become obstacles to achieving happiness and inner peace. Janaki discusses methods from the yogic system and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali that help to achieve freedom from the distractions of the mind and realization of one’s true nature of inner peace.

Ms. Pierson, co-founder and executive director of the Woodbury Meditation & Yoga Center (WMYC), presents seminars on Hatha Yoga, Meditation, Stress Management, Death and Dying/Life and Living, Elementary Sanskrit, and Thinking into Being: Creating Your Own Reality.  Ms. Pierson has been teaching meditation for over 35 years and has been established in her own daily practice for over 40 years.

This complimentary program is to open everyone, and includes instruction and practice of meditation. WMYC is located at 122 West Side Road in Woodbury, CT. Everyone is welcome to come earlier, at 5:00 pm, for a complimentary sample yoga class.
