The Yamas and the Niyamas can be crucial in looking deeper at the self and how we interact with the world around us. The yoga path, as Patanjali lays it out in the Yoga Sutras, is a path that takes the mind from a state of constant movement and disturbance to a state of rest and harmony, and it begins with the practice of the yamas and niyamas.

Our physical practice (asana) and meditation practice do not sit in a vacuum; they rest firmly on the foundation of yoga’s ethical system.  If we go to our mat or our cushion before we have had a heartfelt conversation with these principles, we are missing a powerful part of yoga.  Gaining the skills to choose attitude, thought, and action, may be the grandest adventure you can take.  we will Explore yoga poses to invoke or inspire the courage to bring these concepts to your life.

There will be opportunities for self- reflection and experiential practices that challenges us to apply yogic wisdom to our lives today.

Some of The workshop will be based on Deborah Adele's book and some language and information I will be accessing from her.   I am grateful for people like her who help us recognize what our deepest truth is and that there are other people that resonate with us!
