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.

The bridge will be open this weekend!

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!
