Yoga is so much more than the postures (asanas), in fact there are 7 other limbs on the yogic path! The first two limbs of the 8 are called the Yamas and Niyamas, they are ethical and personal codes to keep the yogi on a disciplined and earnest path.
Through 2019 we will be doing a lecture series on each yama and niyama (there are 10). Think Ted Talks or Creative Mornings for yogis! This series will include a 1 hour (ish) lecture, followed by a 1 hour (ish) conversation/ think tank with all participants. We will be bringing in local experts in their field of work/ study to discuss each yama and niyama in a modern, relatable way to give us tactical considerations for how to think through and apply each discipline into our lives.
The goal of this series is to help people transition the lessons of yoga off of their mats and into the world- and in a modern way.
The word Dharma means to make firm. We hope that through this type of think tank/ lecture series that we can help solidify (make firm) the lessons of yoga in every day life!
We are so proud of the speakers we are collaborating with the bring you this series, and we hope you will join us.
