Series on the Yamas & Niyamas
Mondays 5:30 - 6:45 pm
@ Yama Yoga, 231 E. Buffalo in the Third Ward
This series welcomes all bodies and backgrounds to a safe learning community. Through our weekly classes we'll experience simplicity and depth through focusing on the foundational principles of this ancient tradition. We'll focus our studies on a different yogic principle each week, mostly through physical yoga classes (Asana) as well as through exploring meditation, reflection, and breathing (Pranayama).
This class is accessible for all levels, with modifications and props available for near-beginners, and with deep content to explore for more experienced practitioners. It is recommended that you have had a few yoga experiences or complete the Beginner series at Yama Yoga before entering this class.
Let’s build a firm foundation together.
All are welcome to join the series anytime.
