This 8 week course will introduce the 8 Limbs of Yoga (the tree of yoga) as they apply to and can be experienced through our physical yoga practice.
1) The Roots: Yama (Principles)
Yama can be viewed as foundational principles of yoga. We will bring our awareness to the five Yama as we travel through our physical practice.
2) The Trunk: Niyama (Qualities)
Niyama are qualities of being that we nurture through our yoga practice. We will weave these into our second week's Asana sequence.
3) The Branches: Asana (Postures)
We will move through our Asana practice with plenty of space to perform the positions and to reflect on them.
4) The Leaves: Pranayama (Breath/Energy)
Our focus this week will be on Pranayama (breath/energy work) and the role it plays in our Asana practice.
5) The Bark: Pratyahara (Senses turn inwards)
Pratyahara is a withdrawing of the senses from the external to the internal. Our asana practice will facilitate this action and observe the effects.
6) The Sap: Dharana (Concentration)
Dharana is a state of complete attention or concentration on a single point. Our sequence this week will invite us to practice dharana as we travel through our asana sequence.
7) The Flower: Dhyana (Meditation)
This week we will work with our asana to invoke a sense of flow, fullness and presence that unites our inner and outer worlds.
8) The Fruit: Samadhi (Liberation)
In this final week, we will connect to our deepest selves and to the heart of the Universe. We will move from this place.
