~THE YAMAS & NIYAMAS: On the Mat and Off~
Riverstone Yoga, Tarrytown NY
December 1 & 2
Early bird rate ends November 1. Sign up HERE.
The practice of yoga is not a goal, it is a path. A means for us to reach our highest development as a human being – physical, mental and spiritual.
With the popularity of yoga, the focus has been on the physical practice. But asana (the physical practice of yoga) is just one component/limb of 8 limbs that make up the path of yoga. The Yamas and Niyamas are the first two limbs. These can be described as restraints/wise characteristics and observances/attitude – ethical principles – that help to guide us on this path that leads to finding harmony with our external and internal environment.
In the workshop you will not only learn the meaning of each Yama and Niyama but how to apply each principle on the mat and how to carry the practice with you off the mat. An in-depth discussion will be followed by a master class incorporating these principles.
This workshop is intended for both teachers and students. As a teacher, you will learn how to guide your students on the mat and help them to apply these principles in their practice. As a student, you will begin to learn to use the pose and physical practice as a tool to help take your practice off the mat and into your daily life.
