Fall Series: A Course in the Yamas and Niyamas
Starting next week I’ll be teaching a series that allows you to really immerse yourself in the ancient wisdom of yoga’s guiding principles, the yamas and niyamas.
This is going to be a very special course, not only because I’ll be bringing you juicy perspectives that you can apply directly to enrich your life and get through challenges more gracefully, but also because this kind of course is usually something you study in a workshop or yoga immersion training.
And you’ll be getting it all just by being dedicated to your yoga practice, coming to class each week.
Why you should be excited about this:
This is an incredible opportunity to engage in a beautiful time of self-study and an expansion of your understanding of yoga. Because of the depth you will bring to your practice, you’ll get so much more out of it, both on and off the mat.
When I realized how beautifully and perfectly these guiding principles apply to every situation, actually making life’s challenges easier, I became a better person.
The yamas and niyamas invite you to raise your level of integrity in a way that enhances, enriches, and empowers your relationship with yourself and the world.
You’ll get a LOT out of this, feeling the benefits in every aspect of life, so be sure to schedule time to come to class each week.
By Solstice you’ll discover how MUCH more you are who you want to be because of this journey in your yoga practice.
