The Yamas & Niyamas: Yogic Wisdom for Happiness Off the Mat

Sunday March 4th, 1-4pm

Cost: $30.00

We all know that when we make it to our weekly yoga class that we often feel so much better both physically and mentally. But what if there was a deeper wisdom that you could take with you off the mat? A set of guiding principles that would make you happier and healthier in both body and mind as you went through the ups and downs of every day life? The good news is, there is!

The Yamas and Niyamas are often referred to as the ethical and moral codes of yoga. However, they are much more than a restrictive set of rules. The Yamas and Niyamas are guidelines that can teach us how to work with our every day struggles to lead a happier and healthier life on all levels. 

In this workshop, we’ll introduce you to each of these guidelines in turn to start to develop your understanding of each of these pearls of wisdom. As a group, we’ll offer real world examples of how these guiding principles might be employed to help you navigate the demands of your every day life with a little more skill and a little more happiness. As with most things, it’s a practice, but this workshop will get you on your way to embodying this ancient wisdom that is still so very relevant today.

No experience with these ideas is required to attend!
