Shri Guru Gita Group


This class is taught by:

Laura Spaulding

Laura began practicing yoga in 1967 in Tennessee. She moved to Louisville and studied with Maja Trigg from 1990-1994 when Maja retired and moved away. Laura met K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore in 1999 and studied with him every year until his death in 2009. She continues to study with Saraswathi and Sharath Jois. Laura is a KPJAYI Level 2 Authorized Teacher.
Chanting was recommended by our late teacher, K Pattabhi Jois, and is regularly taught at his school in Mysore. The practice of chanting calms and quiets the mind and develops concentration. Chanting is also a way to learn about the yoga tradition. The Shri Guru Gita is from the Skanda Purana, a ancient text said to have been authored by the great Rishi Vyasa.  It describes the meaning of the guru-disciple relationship.
 
The version used by the chanting group is from The Nectar of Chanting book. (order online http://siddhayogabookstore.org/The-Nectar-of-Chanting.aspx).
