The Yamas in Practice with Emily Mills
Want to learn more about yoga philosophy? Then The Yamas in Practice: A two-hour exploration of living well using yogic philosophy on and off the mat is for you! 🧘♀️
Join Emily Mills for an embodied practice of the Yamas using meditation, mantra, mindful movement and breathwork to experience the theoretical concepts of the Yamas in a tangible way. We’ll look at ways to deepen your practice and how to create more self-awareness by looking at the first limb of yoga — The Yamas. 🌟
What are the Yamas? They encompass our relationship with the world outside of ourself and how to interact with it. Think of the Yamas as guidelines that lead us to living life in harmony with our surroundings. 🕉️
There are five Yamas:
1. Non-violence (Ahimsa)
2. Truthfulness (Satya)
3. Non-stealing (Asteya)
4. Moderation (Brahmacharya)
5. Non-greed (Aparigraha)
Dive into yogic philosophy during The Yamas in Practice with Emily Mills on Saturday, July 29th from 2pm – 4pm, only at Aspire Yoga Center. 💙
