By donation. REGISTER HERE. No Yoga Alliance CE credits offered.

THE YAMAS OF YOGA (ON HOLD)

Many Yoga practitioners are familiar with the postures (asana) and breathing practices (pranayama) of Yoga, but these two practices must stand on the backbone of the Yamas and Niyamas, the first and second steps of Yoga.

Yamas are concerned with our relationship with ourselves, our inner essence, and the external world around us. They arise out of our natural state. The word Yama means “death”, and Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras highlighted 5 Yamas, five things we are to die to within our own character in order to remain in a state of unconditional love, peace and harmony.

Yoga is a way of life, and the Yamas are the means to experiencing lasting energy, calm, strength and transformation on and off the mat.

This online workshop will introduce the Yamas to you and will include:

– Group discussion on the nature of the Self and alignment

– Group discussion to gain an in-depth understanding of each Yama

– Interactive learning, journaling, and reflective questions

Please make sure you have available a journal and pen handy for the journaling portion.

This class is currently on hold.
