Most people arrive on their yoga mat for the benefit a physical practice, to find relief for their sore, tight, and stressed bodies. In other words, they “do” yoga. What does it mean to “live” yoga, to take lessons off the mat and into real life, to tend to our stressed hearts and minds, rather than solely move our bodies?
Join Alison for a six-week dive into the philosophies that form the foundation of a well-rounded yoga practice, the Yamas and the Niyamas. With gentle movement, readings from Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, discussion, and time for reflection and meditation, we'll maybe move less, but explore more.
All humans welcome — bring your journals and pen. Expect some outdoor time and maybe even some playful homework.
+Explore the first two limbs of Patanjali's 8 Limbs of Yoga, the 5 Yamas and the 5 Niyamas, through gentle movement and meditation.
+Learn ways to take yoga off the mat and into real life, to create stronger connection with self and community.
+Deepen your yoga practice through exploration of the totality of yoga can offer.
+Gentle movement, breathwork, and community
