Dear reader Namaste,

WOW – mid October. Canada has just celebrated Thanksgiving and we have much to be grateful for and we count YOU as one of our blessings. We know all the world is not as fortunate as we are right now.

When we speak of this moment in history, it should be said that our grief and anger woke us up to look around the world to heal all sad and oppressed people.

Why Is Yoga So Important for Us All?

At this time in history, we are experiencing many great shifts on planet Earth. We are confronted by day-to-day challenges and global crises which call on each of us to rise up to be our best selves. We face addictions and distractions, disease and trauma, war and environmental devastation, as well as a pervasive sense of disconnection from each other and the natural world. To shift these things into the more beautiful future our hearts know is possible requires a major upgrade to our lives, so that we can be more radiantly healthy, spiritually awake and passionately engaged

Yoga philosophy offers a powerful path to do all those things. We can draw strength from the eternal truths of yoga when we are facing these challenges. Yoga has truly become a global phenomenon, embraced by every country across the planet. Why? Because it has solutions.

As many of you have experienced, Jeffrey Armstrong is a master teacher, who offers deep philosophical and psychological answers to many of life's practical and spiritual questions. He has quietly influenced many people to achieve their dreams. 

Over the next few months, he will be offering classes online via This will give our international students more access to the great wisdom that Jeffrey carries as a Vedic teacher & scholar. PLEASE join us.

"You go to the gym to excercise your body,

the library to exercise your brain - what are you doing for

your atma each day?"  ~ Jeffrey Armstrong


In Vancouver Nov 5: Attend in person or on-line

"Dessert & Yoga Philosophy with Jeffrey Armstrong" 

Great topic this month!!

Dessert at 7:00 pm Class 7:30 - 9:30 PM PST.

According to the Vedic culture, there are four duties, or purusharthas, in human life: Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha.  Last month's topic was on Artha which is the creation of wealth, it is not simply mindless acquisition, but entails the well-being and long-term care of the planet and all the resources for the common good. 

TOPIC: Moksha

Why is it that we so often feel trapped: in our jobs, our relationships and our daily lives? Is it possible that our deep yearning for freedom is an essential quality of the soul and therefore we unconsciously rebel against being stuck or limited in any way? By understanding our true nature, we begin to free ourselves from bondage and take the path that leads towards liberation, or Moksha, rather than burying ourselves deeper into distractions and addictions.

If you can't make it in person you can still register and view online - LIVE!
