Joyful Heart Foundation
In the past, CBY has been a contributor to various causes that spoke to our hearts. This year, CBY will be implementing a monthly donation jar in the hopes to increase our impact of giving to the community. Our yoga practice teaches us that in order to care for others, we must care for ourselves. Eventually, that self-care must extend. It is completely up to you whether or not you choose to participate.
For the month of February, we’ll be collecting donations — loose change, whole dollars, whatever you want to contribute — and everything collected by the end of the month will be matched and donated by CBY to Joyful Heart Foundation.
About Joyful Heart Foundation (taken directly from their website joyfulheartfoundation.org):
The vision of the Joyful Heart Foundation is a world free of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse. Our mission is to transform society’s response to sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse, support survivors’ healing, and end this violence forever.
While we understand that our vision may not be achievable in our lifetimes, we firmly believe that violence and abuse are preventable.
Our Values are the foundation of our organization and guide our thinking, actions, decisions, responses and priorities.
Our Guiding Principles serve as a compass both individually and organizationally. They are the application of our core beliefs that help to shape and direct our work. We approach all we do and every decision we make with the Guiding Principles in mind.
Andrew Eppler Returns: Apr 28-30 2017
ANDREW EPPLER RETURNS TO CBY
A studio favorite for many years, Andrew Eppler will bring his magical and compassionate approach to the Ashtanga practice to Cherry Blossom Yoga this April. Save the dates, more details coming in February.
Andrew Eppler has been practicing Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga for over 30 years and he is the owner and director of Ashtanga Yoga Studio in Norman, Oklahoma. In 1990 at the age of 18 Andrew was able to study with Sri K Pattabhi Jois where he practiced through the 3rd series. In 1995 Andrew returned to Mysore and studied with Sri BNS Iyengar. Because Iyengar’s series is slightly different, Andrew made it a point to learn both methods thoroughly. Andrew has continued to study with Sri BNS Iyengar 8 times over the last 20 years and has completed courses in Pranayama, Mudra, and Yoga Philosophy. Andrew carries Iyengar’s blessing in teaching Yoga.
Andrew’s teachers include everyone he has ever practiced with and every student in his classes. But some kind souls have made great contributions and those people include Sri BNS Iyengar, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, Cliff Barber, David Williams, Nancy Gilgoff, Danny Paradise, Kumar Pallana, and many others.
Magic is one of Andrew’s passions and he has always had a keen fascination with all things that seem to be miraculous or unexplainable. Through the yogic practices he became aware at an early age that perception depends hugely on the state of mind of each individual watching. In his lectures about yoga he sometimes uses magic and illusion to illustrate philosophical points about the nature of the mind and how our perception works. The art of illusion has deep roots and is a part of every culture.
“I have no magic powers other than the power to practice an art form that I love and to make people smile and take them for a moment to a place of wonder where anything can happen. Reality is very fragile indeed when you start to examine it carefully.” ~Andrew Eppler
Andrew’s teaching is a syntheses of everything he has studied and been exposed to in his journey with yoga. He has always loved the structure of the Ashtanga Sequences and the grounding repetition of movements that bring out our full potential and create states of deep concentration. Andrew also loves the creative and innovative sides of yoga and sees yoga as an evolving, expanding cultural and spiritual art form.
“My goal in teaching is to inspire people to believe in themselves and to cultivate a daily practice that fits in their life, and to make it a sacred, healing, evolving, life long journey to explore our fullest potential.” ~Andrew Eppler
