Monthly Satsang

This class is taught by:

Catherine Mulligan

Catherine was introduced to yoga at age 14 as a ballet dancer at Savannah Arts Academy. She quickly fell in love with the movement and philosophy of yoga. At age 16, she earned her first teaching certification and began teaching yoga classes in the dance room after school.

The practice of yoga has undoubtedly been the greatest gift in Catherine’s life. The continued impact yoga makes in her way of being is the “why” behind her teachings. The value of the practice is so high that it would be wrong not to share it.

Katherine Johnson

Teacher, RYT 500
Katherine came to yoga in her retirement after 30+ years as an educator. She started out on the WiiFit, progressed to DVD's and finally made it to her first Gentle class at Savannah Power Yoga almost four years ago. One thing led to another and she decided to enroll in the teacher training program. Katherine wants to share her love of yoga with others.
In addition to yoga, Katherine is an avid gardener, enjoys cooking and entertaining, and likes to travel when she can. She is devoted to her husband of 43 years, her two sons and daughter-in-law, and her new granddaughter. Her dog, Augie, holds a special place in her heart. She believes that everyone can benefit from the joys of yoga. Who knew??? At 60+ years old, Katherine has found a new passion in life. She has also found a new home-away-from-home at Savannah Power Yoga.

Kate Doran

Certified Baptiste Power Vinyasa Teacher, RYT500
Kate started practicing yoga in 1998 to balance out the physical stress of her running habit and the mental stress of working in the software industry. During the years since, she has turned a weekend hobby into her vocation. With more than 1,000 hours of teacher training under her belt, Kate brings a breadth of experience to her teaching.

Join us for a monthly gathering to discuss and reflect on the ethical principles of yoga. 
We will use The Yamas and Niyamas by Deborah Adele as our guide. Each month, one of our SPY teachers will lead the discussion and help us reflect on, discuss and assimilate their meaning into our 21st century lives. These gatherings are intended to be a dialog and an inquiry into how we can align ourselves with these principles and bring them into our thoughts and actions.

The 5 Yamas include:

  • Ahimsa - non-violence (February 21)
  • Satya - truthfulness (March 21)
  • Asteya - non-stealing (April 18)
  • Brahmacharya - moderation in all things (May 16)
  • Aparigraha - non-covetousness (June 20)

The 5 Niyamas include:

  • Saucha - purity i.e. internal and external cleanliness (July 18)
  • Santosha - contentment (August 15)
  • Tapas - austerity; discipline (September 19)
  • Swadhyaya - study of the sacred texts (October 17)
  • Ishwara Pranidhana - constantly living with an awareness of the divine Presence (November 14)
The book, The Yamas and the Niyamas: Exploring Yoga's Ethical Practice by Deborah Adele is available for purchase in our boutique.
No asana practice, we will sit for discussion. Please dress comfortably, bring your ideas and a journal.
