Deep Dive Through the Yamas + Niyamas

September 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

After practising yoga for awhile, some may wonder if there is more to yoga than just the postures. The truth is, the asanas, or the “postures” are only a small fragment of what Yoga is. There are eight ‘limbs’ to the Yoga Sutras, each describing a different aspect of the yoga practice, and a different step on the ladder to realisation. The Yamas and the Niyamas make up the first two limbs.

 

Yama (moral discipline)

  • Ahimsa (non-harming or non-violence in thought, word and deed)
  • Satya (truthfulness)
  • Asteya (non-stealing)
  • Brahmacharya (celibacy or ‘right use of energy’)
  • Aparigraha (non-greed or non-hoarding)

Niyama (observances)

  • Saucha (cleanliness)
  • Santosha (contentment)
  • Tapas (discipline, austerity or ‘burning enthusiasm)
  • Svadhyaya (study of the self and of the texts)
  • Isvara Pranidhana (surrender to a higher being, or contemplation of a higher power)

 

This 8 class series will included not only a deep dive into the Yamas + Niyamas, but also will include yoga, journaling, energy work/reiki, food, chakras and breathwork to name a few. These experiences will be 6:30-8:30pm on Mondays + Thursdays starting September 9th. The classes will be at an outdoor location on Monday’s, Vitalize on Thursday’s. (And if you look at the calendar… there just so happens to be a full moon on one of the Monday’s!)

 

Bonnie + Jojo will collaborate on some of the classes and individually guide you through some of the classes. You can expect a completely different experience each class encouraging pratical ways of taking the Yamas + Niyamas off the mat.

 

The whole enchilada: $90 per person for 8 two hour experiences + a bonus Hike + Meditation on 9/12 😉

Members of Blu the Collective: $40

Individual class drop ins: $15 suggested donation. All indivduals welcome! (Same-same but different for Thursday’s classes! Just a hair longer, yay!)

 

Upon registration, details for each individual class and what is needed will be messaged to you a few days before each class.
