The Yamas and Niyamas are the first two limbs of Patanjali's 8 limbed path as described in the Yoga Sutras. These yogic principals serve as road map toward a pure yoga practice, both on and off the mat.
In the first half of the workshop we will explore the 5 Yamas: Ahimsa (non-violence), Satya (truthfulness), Asteya (non-stealing), Brahmacharya (control of the senses), Aparigraha (non-clinging).
In the second half on the workshop we will explore the 5 Niyamas: Sauca (purity), Santosa (contentment), Tapas (discipline), Svadhyaya (self-study), Ishvara Pranidhana (Devotion to the Divine, as interpreted by the practitioner).
Yoga Alliance registered yoga teachers will receive continuing education contact hours.
