300 YA Credit
All Students Welcome
As the first limb of yoga, we will explore how the 5 principles (Yamas) offer us a ground to nourish and support our yoga practice and lives.
It is a responsibility as humans to live in a manner that represents and sustains the whole of this beautiful world we belong to. The study and deepening of our understanding of the Yamas gives us tools to live with greater compassion and wisdom. The first limb of yoga is meant to be guidelines for intention, where we approach life without judgment of self or others.
