How to Be School:
Yamas & Niyamas
Pay what you are able.
The Yamas and Niyamas were laid out for us by Patanjali, the father of classical yoga, who gave us an 8-limbed path of yoga meant to lead us to liberation. Out of our minds, into our bodies, and into our Selves. The first two limbs of that path are not the asanas (or physical postures) we do in yoga classes, but rather, are moral and ethical guideposts that light our way as yogis on “how to be” in this world. This workshop is a continuation of a previous discussion, but you don't have to have attended the others to benefit from this wisdom & sharing.
This is recommended for all serious yoga practitioners to start to learn these as part of your sadhana, or spiritual path. Bring a pen, a notebook, and an open heart as we dive into these gems of wisdom together. FREE for monthly members; all others are encouraged to pay what they are able ($5-$20).
