There will not be any "presentation" on the book, so if we have nothing to discuss there is always Chai. We welcome differing viewpoints, so bring your future selection suggestions.  First cup of chai is provided by Just Plain Yoga Studio and made by Cornerstone staff.  No outside food or beverage.  


Last Sunday of every other month 

Next meeting June 24th

Book selection for June: 


The Goddess Pose: The Audacious Life of Indra Devi, the Woman Who Helped Bring Yoga to the West

Our book selections will be group chosen. We are striving to select books of high interest which may be controversial,  emotionally moving, and/or exciting. Any topic within the broad term "Yoga" is acceptable.

Angela Conforti took her first yoga class at Just Plain Yoga in 2009. Since then she has been drawn to the mental and physical benefits that yoga provides. She received her B.S. in Life Science and Psychology, has completed significant graduate coursework in Anatomy at Penn State, and is now pursuing her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Marymount University. During her graduate coursework, she fell in love with the human body and its exquisite function. Teaching experience includes college level biology and anatomy courses as well as anatomy seminars for yoga teachers interested in deepening their knowledge of the human form. After completing the 40 Hour Hatha certification at Just Plain Yoga, she has made it her mission to bring the essentials of anatomy to all who wish to study, practice, and teach yoga.

Freedom Dance- with Erica Binder

"Dance when you're broken open. Dance if you've torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you are perfectly free." -Rumi

Through a combination of guided and free-form movement, become fully present and journey through a moving meditation. Erica will introduce you to simple movements set to upbeat, funky music. You choose where the breath will take you from there. Combine the basics of asana with the breath and invite yourself off the mat in the ultimate of self-expression AND self-exploration. Let go, have fun, and move. No dance experience necessary

kids yoga at just plain yoga studioAbout Erika: In her personal life and professional career, Erika has found the laughter and smiles of others to be the most fulfilling. That is why one of her favorite hobbies is juggling and she refers to herself as Miss Erika Amerika.

Having taken every opportunity in her life to inspire people and put smiles on their faces, she began by earning a degree in Sociology and Psychology leading to a career in therapeutic situations and learning environments. In her life studies and employment, Erika has learned that mindfulness and positive thinking are great tools for all.

After practicing yoga for many years, Erika recognized that the benefits of yoga could be useful for children in their everyday lives so she became a certified Kids Yoga instructor through Kidding Around Yoga. She is also a certified 200 hour Kripalu yoga instructor.

You will find Erika meowing in the Cat Pose; barking in Downward Dog; and Kidding Around with the children in her class (and sometimes with adults).

yin yoga at just plain yoga studioAmrit Yoga Nidra-with certified yoga nidra teacher, Paul Herzer E-RYT-500

Amrit Yoga based guided relaxation for stress relief & rejuvenation

A paradigm shift from thinking and doing to feeling and being. During sleep, we drop beneath mental and emotional activity. Yoga Nidra literally means “yogic sleep.” In the meditative experience of yoga nidra, we transcend self-created perceptions and limitations. Sleep takes us below the mind, and meditation carries us beyond the mind.

Through a unique combination of alert awareness and profound relaxation, Yoga Nidra works by immersing the practitioner, simultaneously accessing the power of the logical left-brain and the intuitive right brain to align the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems back to homeostasis.

The Amrit Method of Yoga Nidra requires neither years of practice nor intellectual understanding. With focused attention  unconsciously held obstructions and energetic blockages are released, freeing you to actualize your intentions and live to your true potential.

About Paul: After 10 years and thousands of hours practicing the few authentic styles of Yoga Nidra, Paul trained directly under Yogi Amrit Desai in the Amrit Method Yoga Nidra. Amrit Desai is the last living yoga Grand Master; he and Dr. Kamini Desai developed Yoga Nidra over the last 25 years blending ancient wisdom with modern science. Paul was then personally invited to participate in the first Advanced Yoga Nidra Facilitator Training. He is a certified Master Yoga Nidra Facilitator and leads Amrit Yoga Nidra meditations all over the world.

"Just Plain Yoga's program makes the 200 hour training accessible to teachers who want to further their yoga education while continuing to work full time." - Patricia

Her (full one-year or more) teaching training format allows ample time for full comprehension of material, attendance at required workshops and readings. Upon completion of the program, students leave confident with their own authentic voice. A transformational experience and the best teacher training in Central Pennsylvania!" -Susan

"I thoroughly enjoyed completing my RYT 200 hour training at Just Plain Yoga. Now that my training is complete, I feel confident in my capabilities as a yoga instructor. I feel educated not only in the area of yoga poses and techniques, but also in the anatomy of the human body and the process of meditation. I look forward to touching people's lives through yoga, as yoga has touched mine." -Renee

"I feel just plain yoga has prepared me to be the best yoga instructor that I can be." -Amanda

"An outstanding teacher training program with exceptional instructors in a professional and nurturing environment." -Brenda

"Just Plain Yoga teacher training is rigorous and fun. There is an emphasis on being well rounded, learning more than one style of yoga and still providing the the opportunity to "specialize" in either Hatha or Vinyasa. The required reading is designed to make you really think about the many topics in yoga, some controversial, in addition to providing expert guidance. There is plenty of time to practice teach during the modules, working in pairs with other students under the guidance of instructors. The anatomy training is based on applications to yoga and is immediately useful. The guest instructors for special topics like anatomy, history, and Sanskrit are excellent." -Sherra

"The best investment of time, funds and self that I have made in my 63 trips around the sun." -Gary
