Bhagavad Gita As It Is

Join your fellow Sid Yoga Center member, Walt Mills, as he leads you through a 10 session series to dive deeper into your Yoga practice and learn all about the ancient Hindu Scripture, Bhagavad Gita.

Bhagavad Gita is the ancient Hindu Scripture described as the “heart of all Vedic literature.” It is likened to the Gospel of John in the Christian Bible, in that it is the essence of Eastern world views. It is dramatically delivered as a song by Lord Krishna on the Battlefield of Kuruksetra in ancient India, as a response to Arjuna’s life-altering dilemma. Topics include:

 

 

 

- Karma-Yoga
- Bhakti-yoga
- Transcendental Knowledge
- Action and Inaction
- Renunciation
- Devotional Service
- The 3 Modes of Material Nature
- Reincarnation
- Divine and Demoniac Natures
- Mantra, Sanskrit and Meaning

A copy of the book will be provided free to each participant!

Meeting Dates: Jan 5-12-19-26; Feb 2-9-23; March 2-9-23

Cost: $10/session or $60/entire ten week sessions

Led by: Walt Mills – Sid Yoga member and bhakti-yogi. Student of The Bhagavad Gita for 45 years; disciple of A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, founder/acharya of ISKCON.

Cost: Pre-Register $20 / Door Price $30

Healing Breath @ Sid Yoga Center: Towson
Jan 25 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Release your inner blocks

Healing Breathwork is a tool for healing, and clearing old patterns within ones body. Learn how to use your breath for emotional release, mental clarity, and physical freedom.

Sid’s Healing Breathwork is a powerful approach to self-exploration and healing that integrates insights from modern consciousness research, transpersonal discovery, and spiritual practice. The process itself uses very simple means: it combines natural baby’s breathing with evocative music in a comfortable setting. With the eyes closed and lying on a mat, each person uses their own breath and the music in the room to tap into deeper a consciousness.

This experience is appropriate for everyone and will leave you with clarity, inner peace and connection to yourself.
Sid McNairy will be your lead guide for this session, who has countless hours studying Holotropic and transgressional breathwork under the direct supervision and teachings of Grandmother Morningstar, who was a direct student of founder of holotropic breathwork Stanley Grof’s for years.

Space is limited. Sign up today!

Cost: $35 pre-register / $45 day of the workshop
