Secret Power Of Yoga
by and with Nischala Joy Devi
My Vinyasa Practice was honored to host Nischala Joy Devi for a three-day, in-studio (and Live Stream ZOOM) workshop in December 2021, providing a deep dive in Nischala's teachings surrounding The Secret Power of Yoga.*
This workshop is now available for you to work through remotely in your own time. It focuses and parallels The Secret Power of Yoga as a lecture-based series of content explored through discussions, meditation, and collaboration with students in Q & A.
In The Secret Power of Yoga, world-renowned Yoga expert Nischala Joy Devi interprets Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, the principles at the basis of Yoga practice, from a heart-centered, intuitive, feminine perspective, resulting in the first translation intended for women.
Yoga is well known for its power to create a healthy body, but few realize the emotional and spiritual benefits. Devi’s simple, elegant, and deeply personal interpretations capture the spirit of each sutra, and her suggested practices offer numerous ways to embrace the spirituality of Yoga throughout your day.
