Balance & Equanimity: The Eight Limbs of Yoga Workshop

Sunday, May 19, 2019 at Camp Janette Pollay from 1-3:30P

At House of the Gathering Yoga School, our curriculum is based on The Eight Limbs of Yoga from the Yoga Sutra. The Yoga Sutra was written down or codified, by a guy named Patanjali around 1,700 years ago. Maybe you are wondering, who is this guy, and what is the Yoga Sutra?

The Yoga Sutra is basically a road map. It is a pathway of knowledge, wisdom, and disciplined practice to achieve what many yoga practitioners refer to as enlightenment or Samadhi. In its simplest form the Yoga Sutra can be thought of as an instruction manual for healthy and whole living. It’s really, pretty cool. The Eight Limbs of Yoga are as follows:

*Yama-Ethical behavior and how we conduct ourselves in life.

*Niyama-Self Discipline and Practice.

*Asana-Physical postures in yoga.

*Pranayama-Breath control and breath practices.

*Prayahara-Sense withdrawal, turning the attention inward.

*Dharana-Concentration, dealing with the distractions of the mind.

*Dhyana-Meditation or contemplation.

*Samadhi-Freedom and peace, realization of the Self. 

The Eight Limbs of Yoga offer a way in which to get know ourselves better at the place where mind and body meet. As we become more consistent in thought and action, our path becomes clearer. What no longer serves us begins to fall away, opening the doorway for something new to emerge. It is here where we can experience more freedom in our lives. In this workshop we will explore this systematized practice and place it within the context of our modern lives. 

*Continuing Education Units (CEUs) available for taking this course if you are a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance.*
