PART 1: THE YAMAS - MORAL RESTRAINT AND SELF CONTROL (10 CEU's)
Tuesdays starting 6/2-6/30, 5:00-6:00pm
- OR -
Thursdays starting 6/4-7/2, 11:30am-12:30pm
A virtual course to gather, learn, discuss, contemplate and embody the most basic and therefore, in my opinion the most important practices in Yoga and on the spiritual path. Consider a house built on a rocky foundation, it’s unstable. Understanding and living the Yamas & Niyamas creates a strong foundation for which you can build the home of your life and spiritual practice. The Yamas & Niyamas, a practical guide that brings understanding and guidance to life in the physical body. I invite you to join me on this journey through the fundamental practices of Yoga that lay the framework for a life full of joy & happiness- and not because everything is going perfectly and nothing bad ever happens, but because the foundation of life is rooted in these core beliefs that seek to alleviate suffering. Covered over the course of five weeks, we will meet virtually once a week for an hour to discuss one Yama and how to apply it to your Yoga practice and every day life. I have purposefully structured the course so that there is a full week between each Yama so you have time to implement, contemplate, journal, and become familiar with each one.

Friday, June 12th. 7:30pm - 8:45pm
Instructor: Ashlyn Miller
Subtle Yoga & Relaxation- a fusion of gentle movement, pranayama (breath work), mudra (hand gestures), and mantra (a condensed vibration of realization in the form of a sound or saying) to prepare the body for deep relaxation. You will be guided through intentional movements that help loosen up the body and any places of tension, tightness, & stagnancy (physical, mental, & emotional) creating spacing for the expansion of prana (life force energy) through breath work. There will be a light asana (physical postures) practice to clear the subtle body, composed of nadis (channels) & chakras (energetic centers/wheels) according to Yogic philosophy. The use of mudra & mantra will be weaved in towards the end to prepare the mind & intellect for an extended guided relaxation in savasana. All levels are welcome. It is best to practice on an empty stomach- if you must eat before, have a light snack 30min-1hr before or give 2 hours after a full meal. Feel free to bring a journal in case there is anything you feel the need to write or reflect upon.
