Full Description

The yamas and niyamas are yoga's ethical guidelines laid out in the first two limbs of Patanjali's eightfold path. They're like a map written to guide you on your life's journey. Simply put, the yamas are things not to do, or restraints, while the niyamas are things to do, or observances.

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali rank among the basic philosophical writings of yoga. There has been and still is a long tradition of passing it on from teacher to pupil to be practiced and repeated. With the rhythm of the Sanskrit language wisdom is transported, which exceeds the simple meaning of the words easily.

The Yoga Sutra, widely regarded as the authoritative text on yoga, is a collection of aphorisms, outlining the eight limbs of yoga. These "threads" (as sutra translates from Sanskrit) of wisdom offer guidelines for living a meaningful and purposeful life. Learn more about the sutras and Patanjali, the sage who wrote them.

Kim will discuss the Yamas and Niyamas of the Yoga Sutras and how they apply to our yoga practice.
