[Live Streamed] The Yamas_ The Backbone of Practice with Kate Bailey - Seattle Yoga Arts

This workshop starts at the first limb of the traditional 8 limb practice: the Yamas. The yamas are universal principles set out to give structure and points of self reflection on how we act in our world. While we often start our relationship with yoga during yoga asana classes, how we approach those classes should be soaked in the philosophy of the ethical backbone of the practice defined by the first two limbs of yoga: the Yamas and the Niyamas.

During this workshop we will look at the 5 principles: ahimsa, satya, asteya, brahmacharya, and aparigraha. We will look at each as it is commonly defined and extrapolate how we as students of yoga can apply these principles to our practice on the mat, as well as our practice in relationship outside of the yoga studio. We will learn how each Yama informs all the other Yamas and by working through the understanding of these principles, the practice of yoga becomes richer and more complex, brining the philosophy of this ancient system to contemporary life.

In addition to discussing the Yamas, we will practice integrating the principles with a pranayama and simple, home friendly restorative practice.

Pre-registration is recommended; workshop size will be limited.


Tuition: $60
