The 5 Yamas – Living Yoga off the Mat

June 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

The practice of yoga is an art and science dedicated to creating union between body, mind, and spirit. Its objective is to assist the practitioner in using the breath and body to foster an awareness of ourselves as individualized beings intimately connected to the unified whole of creation. In short, it is about making balance and creating equanimity so as to live in peace, good health, and harmony with the greater whole. This art of right living was perfected and practiced in India thousands of years ago. The foundations of yoga philosophy were written down in The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, approximately 200 AD. This sacred text describes the inner workings of the mind and provides an eight-step blueprint for controlling its restlessness so as to enjoy lasting peace.

This 90 minute workshop will focus on Yoga’s ethical guidelines from the first limb of Patanjali’s eightfold path- Yamas (Universal Morality). Denise will explain these observances and how important it is to the yogic life. You will experience examples for each through journaling and discussion as well as mudras and mantras that will help you understand these ethical and moral codes on and off the mat.

When: Saturday-June 16th from 2:00pm until 3:30pm.

Where: At The Yoga House of Brandon
