Join Luke for a class, discussion and practice that will take an in-depth look at the 10 commitments of yoga – the Yamas and Niyamas. Find out how we constantly use the world around us and others in our lives to see habits that need refinement. Through these habit changes we can learn how to apply those refinements to our lives and our own inner environment. As Gandhi says “Be the change you want to see in the world.” The Yamas and Niyamas are the way.

Have you always wanted to try yoga but feared walking into a class for the first time and having not a clue of what’s going on or what to expect? Or perhaps you’ve been practicing for a while and would like to fine tune your awareness of some of the poses. Well in this informative workshop we will visit and deconstruct several of yoga’s core poses. Learning the names and proper technique/alignment will help anyone new or not to yoga feel better prepared to step onto their mat with a greater mind body awareness.
Winter Session II 2019 will introduce Strong Flow Yoga.
You will build strength and endurance with this dynamic vinyasa practice. It is a fact that we loose 15-20% of our muscle mass as we age even if we stay active. Using our own body weight (and other props) to build muscle mass and to increase our stamina is the focus of this practice. Strong flow will include sun salutations and plenty of opportunities to assist us in becoming an individual of character and strength.
Restorative Yoga brings harmony to the body’s rhythms. It brings you to a state of “being”, not “doing”, while there is no movement, no effort, and the brain becomes quiet. Props are used to place the body in comfortable, relaxing poses. This enables the mind to clear, the breath to deepen, and the body to easily relax into balance. Restorative Yoga is the practice of deliberate stillness. This is when the healing begins. It is known that restorative yoga can activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which enables automatic control of the body. As such, the regular nervous system will be at rest, and the muscles will become more relaxed. Constant practice of restorative yoga will make your body less vulnerable to stress-related illnesses and help you achieve optimal health.

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!
Please PRE-REGISTER below or in the studio. For more information call Donna at 262.758.0658
Let us commemorate the transition into 2019 with a heart-centered focus and transformational yoga practice that welcomes a magnificent New Year!
Please join us for this journey to celebrate the blessings that are already with us and those that are are about to unfold. We will pause to look into our center, tap into grace and gaze forward into the infinite potential of 2019. Let’s leave behind all that keeps us from our true purpose, passion and JOY in life. Using our concentrated awareness and playful attitude, we will practice as a way to set our intentions (sankalpa) for 2019. Let’s aim high and true so that we may offer our gifts to the world and move towards our Dharma (true purpose).
