Thank you to 500-Hour Teacher Training student and a regular at Sunrise Yoga, Fran Gordon, for sharing the following information:
Curious about the Yoga Sutras? What about reading them from a heart-centered perspective?
Nischala Joy Devi is the first woman to translate the Yoga Sutras from just such a viewpoint with her book, The Secret Power of Yoga.
Originally trained in Western medicine and having spent over 25 years as a monastic disciple of Sri Swami Satchidananda, Nischala established yoga programs at The Dean Ornish Program for Reversing Heart Disease and co-founded the award-winning Commonweal Cancer Help Program.
BrightStar spoke with Nischala about the Divine Feminine focus she brings to all her work, from treating patients who’ve suffered from heart attacks & cancer to anyone looking to deepen their spiritual journey.

Congratulations to Christy Bales for winning the “10 things” contest. We randomly drew her name & she won this T-shirt. (If you like the shirt, you can own one too – they are available at the studio.)
Have you heard the news? There’s no excuse not to come to our 10-year Anniversary Party on Saturday between 1-5. Construction to the Yadkin River Bridge on I-40 has been postponed due to the weather, so traffic won’t be an issue. See you there!
For every friend who attends any part of Saturday’s Anniversary Party, you receive 25 Perkville points. You’ll be that much closer to redeeming a coupon for $10 off your next class card.
Sunrise Yoga is celebrating our 10th anniversary on June 8—and you’re invited! More details to come!
