It’s not too early to think about your New Year’s Resolution. Make a different kind of resolution this year – one that truly enriches your mind, body and spirit. Starting in January, Mint Hill Yoga will offer a Yoga Book Club, which will meet on Wednesdays at 5:30 pm starting on January 8th.
Consider making this your resolution. For only $5 per week, pre-registered participants will enjoy tea and cookies while they discuss reading and what it means for them on and off the mat. Pre-registration will be available on www.minthillyoga.com in mid November.
The first book up for discussion is The Bhagavad Gita translated by Stephen Mitchell. Bettie Shea, the owner of Mint Hill Yoga, describes it as the story of Arjuna, a young warrior on the battlefield, and his encounter with Krishna, who is God incarnate. The entire story is a conversation between the two about life and death, the after life and spirituality. It is a story you will truly never forget.
