Location: Main Studio

the book of joyPlease join us for an informal discussion of The Book of Joy by Douglas Abrams. Copies are available at the studio for $26.00.

Nobel Peace Prize Laureates His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu have survived more than fifty years of exile and oppression. Despite their hardships – or, as they would say, because of them-they are two of the most joyful people on the planet. In The Book of Joy, they offer us the reflection of real lives filled with pain and turmoil in the midst of which they have been able to discover a level of peace, courage, and joy to which we can all aspire.

 

Our Book Club meets monthly on the third Tuesday of every month at 7.30 pm.

Teacher:

  • Gemma:  Gemma Farrell has studied various styles of yoga, including Iyengar, Sivananda, Jivamukti, Yin, Insight, and Integral Yoga. Her current approach to teaching yoga fuses the precise alignment principles of Iyengar yoga with the freedom and creativity of a Vinyasa Flow practice, and incorporates the deeper release stretching and meditative aspects of Yin Yoga. Gemma sees yoga as a vehicle for self-discovery and a means for increasing awareness of the present moment, an opportunity to cultivate wisdom and compassion, and above all, an invitation to foster a spirit of devotion and open our hearts to love and serve others.
