Tuesdays & Thursdays
Want to kick start your summer days in just the right way?
Stop by gorgeous Gallagher Way (right next to Wrigley Field) on Tuesday and Thursday mornings for a free yoga class with us. You'll be on your way by 8 AM, feeling strong, loose, and calm. Ready for anything the day has in store for you!
Tuesdays are a vigorous flow, designed to get your heart pumping and challenge you a little bit. Thursdays are a treat to wind down your week with a gentler flow. All levels are welcome.
Love is always the answer.

Sutra 1.3 - तदा द्रष्टुः स्वरूपेऽवस्थानम् - Tada Drastuh Svarupe Avasthanam
Then the Seer Abides in Its Own Nature
Now we come to the result of practicing yoga. Abiding in the spirit’s nature. What is the spirit’s nature? What is the spirit?
The spirit animates the body and mind. It uses the body and mind to participate in nature.
“The spirit is like a constant light. It has no name. It does not feel pain. It has no likes or dislikes. Right now within you, there is an exuberant spirit taking delight in watching the world. Whenever you are completely involved in what you are doing, you experience the creative and timeless nature of the spirit.” (Bhakt, 7)
We experience the spirit’s nature when our mind is calm. Our spirit’s nature is love. This Sutra really is as simple as that!
