Intro to Yamas and Niyamas

Monday Jan. 14th / 7:30-8:30pm / $15

Exploring the yogic code of ethics.

The yamas and niyamas are yoga’s ethical guidelines laid out in the first two limbs of Patanjali’s eightfold path. They’re like a map written to guide you on your life’s journey. Simply put, the yamas are things not to do, or restraints, while the niyamas are things to do, or observances. Together, they form a moral code of conduct. We will be considering questions such as, how does Ahimsa, ‘Non-Violence’, help us to cultivate an attitude of compassion? What does Satya, ‘Truthfulness’, mean in our practice? How can we rest in Santosha, ‘Contentment’, and still encourage ourselves to strive towards our dreams and goals? Is Tapas, ‘Discipline’, really as scary as it sounds – or are we already practicing this without realizing? Let’s explore these concepts and discover how they can be used like a personal GPS!
