Yogic Philosophy: Understanding Ethics of Yoga|
The first two limbs of the eight-fold path of yoga sutras--the basic text for classical yoga--are about ethics. The third limb is the actual physical practice that most people focus on. Foundational to all yogic thought, the ethics are considered the guidelines to the yoga way of living that free individuals to take ownership of their lives, direct them toward the fulfillment they seek, and gain the skills to choose attitude, thought, and action. The first five guidelines are referred to as the "yamas--"a Sanskrit word that translates to "restraints"--and encompass nonviolence, truthfulness, not stealing, nonexcess, and nonpossessiveness. The last five are referred to as the "niyamas," or observances--purity, contentment, self-discipline, self-study, and surrender. In this one day workshop we will dive deep into exploring these ethics and how to apply them to our daily lives to help us be the best versions of ourselves.
