Interfaith Service – 9:00 am in the Sanctuary

Soul Talk – 10:00 am in the Peace Chapel

With Avril James-Hurt

Interfaith Service: “Yoga as Meditation”

Soul*Talk: “Moving from the Gross to the Subtle: the Multi-leveled Body in Yoga Philosophy”

An interactive discussion on the multi-leveled body system of Yoga Philosophy (koshas). A discussion on the karmic relationship between healthful eating and a spiritual path.  Suggestions for developing ahimsa (nonviolence) in eating and brief exercise, the 61 points, to increase relaxation in the physical body.

About Avril

Avril began exploring Yoga two decades ago with the Siddha Yoga devotional tradition asana and Yoga Nidra from R. Allen Pittman. His lead inspired her to begin teaching in 1996. Although her classes were successful something was missing—the true goal—Enlightenment. Her understanding of Yoga as a spiritual path was renewed and expanded by Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati (Swami J.), and the introduction to the Himalayan tradition. She is currently undergoing the 2000+ hour self-study program (sadhana), codified by Swami J., focusing on the internal work of Traditional Yoga where meditation is central. Through this practice she has become an Abhyasa Ashram authorized coach in Yoga as meditation.  Avril holds both a bachelor’s of science degree in exercise physiology and a master’s degree in public health from Georgia State University and Benedictine University. She is an ACSM certified Health and Fitness Specialist, a Yoga Alliance 500 Hour Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher, an IYTA Registered Yoga Therapist, a Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES), and recently completed the WellcoachesTM wellness coach training. Over the past 8 years at the Medical Fitness Association member center, Piedmont Atlanta Health and Fitness Club, Avril has developed a highly successful Restorative Yoga program, Vitality Yoga Therapy.
