A doorway to a deeper practice through the Yamas & Niyamas. This 6 session deep dive is about finding and following an authentic life both on and off your mat. Move beyond your physical practice and learn how to integrate the 8’fold path into your everyday life.
Deepening your understanding of the 8 Limbs of Yoga (The Yamas & Niyamas) your asana practice will not only expand but can be integrated into everyday life. While yoga is most accessible to the masses through movement (asana, the third limb of yoga), the other 7 limbs can be used as a source to not only strengthen your physical practice but can help you embody the soul of yoga and provide a doorway to a deeper practice of self.
The philosophy of Yamas and Niyamas combine a solid base for a balanced life. They encompass most of the challenges that people face from others and themselves. Whether you’re a practitioner of yoga or have never stepped on the mat, the principles drawn from the ancient texts can strengthen your foundation and help you to embody the soul of yoga in your teachings and in your life.
