While Asha Nayaswami was visiting us and speaking at the Texas Yoga Retreat last October, she also did a podcast with a student group from UT called the Polymath Club — students who design their own degree plans from various disciplines they are interested in. This podcast series is charmingly called “The Unfinished Mind” and here is the link to their 30-minute interview with Asha. I love the name ‘Unfinished Mind”! It aptly describes the spiritual journey: that there is always more, that our happiness and destiny lies inside of us and not out there somewhere in worldly achievements. As Yogananda puts it, “The only place where you can find God is within the human nervous system.” Until then, our minds (and hearts and souls) are not finished or satisfied. But never fear, an array of signposts, rest stations, and lessons await as we sojourn the vast territory of that joyful, mysterious inner space.
So, let us be traveling companions on Sunday mornings — if you are new to the practices, we will guide you. All levels of experience are most welcome. Details are:
Where: Be Well Yoga Studio
1906 W. Koenig Lane
Austin, TX 78756
When: Sundays 10:00 – 11:00a.m.
What: Energization, prayer, chanting, meditation, affirmations
Details: Park behind the house. Look for the driveway between Be Well Yoga and Bare Body Day Spa to park in back. It’s OK to park behind 1908 as well and walk through the gate. Take the outside staircase up to the deck to enter the yoga studio. Bathrooms can be accessed through the downstairs back door. Suggested love offering $10 for rent. Venmo: @Kim-Pradhan
Afterwards: Optional brunch at Brentwood Social House, walking distance down Koenig Lane.
Joy is within us,
“Life is nothing but progress toward freedom — that’s 100% of what we are doing here.” Asha Nayaswami, Texas Yoga retreat, Oct. 15, 2022.
