"True North is your orienting point - your fixed point in a spinning world - that helps you stay on track as a leader. It is derived from your most deeply held beliefs, values, and the principles you lead by. It is your internal compass, unique to you, representing who you are at your deepest level." -Bill George

  • The Sutrabowl

    Join Jacqui Bonwell, the “Spiritual Mother of New England” for one of her most profound offerings. A note from Jacqui on what to expect:

    One of the most heartfelt classes I have ever taught. 196 Yoga Sutras explained in vinyasa & meditation format. All of the Sutra interpretations (ok, not all, but a lot of them) can just stop with the drama. They are quite simple teachings that can be a profound compliment to the way we reframe our thoughts, understand ourselves and carry on with some kind of freedom. I work towards providing an intimate insight into the teachings of Patanjali. That said-nobody knows who he really is, we could easily find out he mistreated others like Pattabhi Jois and who knows if it's all been a big game of telephone tag. I've got a 50/50 shot...so I am both grateful & suspect. I've always felt like the bastard child of Yoga. BUT....if you start going Sutra by Sutra and look at the teachings in the simplest light you see what a compliment they are to whatever you believe. That they seem to have no agenda other than for you to get on board with you, and THAT can be of great service to us all.
