Workshop offers introduction to Sivananda yoga

Sivananda yoga workshop at Inner Light Yoga Studio in Vernon

Considered one of the most influential spiritual teachers of the 20th century, Swami Sivananda’s mission is to bring peace, health and joy through yoga.

On Saturday, a Sivananda yoga workshop will be offered by Vernon yoga teacher Satyama Lasby at Inner Light Yoga Studio.

Lasby has been teaching Sivananda classes for 10 years, following her first visit to the Sivananda Ashram in Kerala, India. She is multi-disciplined trained and is the owner of Open to Bliss yoga, massage and retreats.

“Learn how yoga can help maintain a healthy body and how yogic philosophy, applied in daily life, can help maintain a peaceful mind and spirit,” said Lasby.

The teachings are simplified into five points: proper exercise (asanas); proper breathing (pranayama); proper relaxation (savasana); proper diet (vegetarian); positive thinking (vedanta) and meditation (dhyana).

“This workshop is ideal for those sincerely seeking change in their lives,” she said.

The workshop takes place Saturday from noon to 2:30 p.m. at Inner Light Yoga Studio, 2807-44th Ave. Cost is $45 per person, and pre-registration is required by calling Lasby at 250-545-4774 or
