$108.00 Experience the Yamas: A 6-Week Series to Embody Yogic Ethic Principles

The Yoga Sutras are an ancient text that define the Eight Limbs of Yoga (Ashtanga) and explain in detail how to practice and live yogically. One of the 8 limbs is THE YAMAS - a set of five yogic principles that guide us how to act ethically in our lives. The yamas are the first of the eight limbs, and actually precede asana practice as part of a yogic lifestyle! In the special in-depth series, Abby will guide you to explore these five principles - not only what they are, but how to experience and embody them in your physical yoga practice. Each session will begin with discussion, followed by a yoga asana practice which will integrate the yama into the physical practice. You'll embody each yama, and learn how to take them from your yoga mat into your daily life. This series will delve into how to practice asana ethically, and how the five yamas innately guide you away from stress and towards an abiding sense of inner peace within yourself and in relation to others.
