Yoga book club

Svadhyaya is the Sanskrit word for "self-study". We will read and discuss a book each month chosen to help us reflect on ourselves, our place in the world, and what we can do to make our community stronger for all.

We meet the first Saturday of the month at Black Cat Yoga for discussion and meditation on that month's book. Books are available for purchase at Aaron's Books and Black Cat Yoga.

No purchase necessary to attend.

In-person and Virtual attendance available.

Donations to the Black Cat Yoga Community Fund appreciated.
