3-5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 21
and ongoing 3rd Saturday
The Theme for this Year is Be Your Self!
Over the course of the next eleven months, Women's Satsang will offer an opportunity for yoga students to deepen their personal and spiritual growth through the study of the Yamas and Niyamas.
The Yamas and the Niyamas are the underlying principles of yoga. They are both the foundation of all yogic thought and a practical guide for spiritual living.
Applying these principles to our daily lives provides an experience of vitality, wholeness and peace of mind; the kind of experience that comes from taking ownership of our life, from aligning our values with our actions, and from directing our energy toward personal and spiritual fulfillment.
Each class will begin with a discussion of one of the principles, followed by an all-levels hatha practice and meditation. Integrating the teachings through the body allows for a deeper awareness and application of these principles on and off the mat.
Join us the Third Saturday of each Month
to find a piece of your truth.
Mark your calendars now for September 19

Starting Sept. 18
Postnatal Yoga for New Moms and Babies Ages 6 Weeks until They Start Crawling
New moms -- bring your babies to yoga class on Friday mornings at 11:30 a.m., whether they are asleep or awake.
You will work on gently getting back into shape as you learn how to incorporate your baby into your yoga practice. This is a great way to get out of the house and enjoy the company of other new moms, make new friends, and establish play dates.
Isolation is a common situation for new moms, and this is a positive way to share your feelings with others who are learning how to best enjoy the joys and trials of motherhood. Postnatal Instructor, Bridget Orengo, has the experience to answer your questions and address many of the concerns you may have as a new mom.
This class will be more than just relaxing, it will be a good form of exercise, a social outing, and fun! Spread the word to all your friends with babies!
Postnatal Yoga is also a good way to use any left over classes from Prenatal Yoga, and a great way to keep up with your prenatal yoga friends.
Bridget Orengo is the mother of 2 toddlers, hairstylist, massage therapist, poet, dancer, philanthropist, philosopher and spiritualist....
The 17 years of being a licensed bodyworker, has given Bridget a deeper understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the human body, as well as different healing modalities from the east to the west. Her continuing study of massage led her to prenatal/postnatal massage, from there to attending births, and many midwifery courses and workshops.
Bridget took her first yoga class 17 years ago, weaving many different styles into the mix; kundalini, bikram, integral, pre/postnatal, vinyasa flow, yin yoga, and meditation and pranayama practices. This quest of learning postures has been an undercurrent in her humanitarian services and spiritual journey; traveling abroad immersing herself in different cultures and religions. Bridget is a believer in unity through diversity, and in always reflecting love and compassion. As Sri Swami Satchidananda said," Many paths, One truth."
Bridget received her RYS 200hr from the Asheville Yoga Center and is enrolled in the RYS 300hr. She is humbled and grateful for the opportunity to serve as a yoga teacher and vows to always be a student on this great path.
