Suzanne will offer an introductory exploration into yogic philosophy. To many people the word “yoga” conjures visions of humans twisted into various pretzel shapes. But a yogic life is more than asana or physical postures. Yoga is “the union between the individual soul and the universal soul.” Both in Buddhism and yogic philosophy klesas are referenced as “afflictions” or obstacles. They are impediments to the realization of self/Self. These afflictions are considered the base cause of suffering. The presentation will examine these five self-imposed hindrances to enlightenment.

Suzanne M. Best, C-IAYT, E-RYT® 500, is owner and president of Santosa Studio, LLC in Kilmarnock, Virginia ( She is a certified yoga therapist by the International Association of Yoga Therapists, Yoga Integrated Science® certified graduate and ambassador, AFAA certified personal trainer, AFAA certified group exercise instructor, Second dan black belt, and a Bay Center for Spiritual Development board member.
