Yoga Off the Mat: Yamas & Niyamas – A Members Only Workshop

with Christine Hills

It is said that yoga continues long after you step off your mat. Carrying the practice of yoga philosophy with you throughout your daily life is perhaps more challenging than anything you may encounter on your mat. All of life, then, is yoga.

“By firmly grasping the flower of a single virtue, a person can lift the entire garland
of yama and niyama.”
Swami Kripalu

Interested in supporting and expanding your asana practice? Curious about these drops of wisdom yoga philosophy provides? Join us for the next members only workshop! Together we will begin to explore the timeless teachings held within the first two of Patanjali’s 8 Limbs of Yoga: the Yamas and Niyamas. Often translated as guidelines or ethical disciplines, the yamas and niyamas offer us direction and insight as we navigate both the world around us, and the world within.

Date: Saturday September 16th
Time: 1:00 – 3:00pm
Location: University Place Studio
Cost: FREE for Autopay Members

Yoga Nidra

Join Lori Ferry one day each month for an hour of Yoga Nidra. In a Yoga Nidra class we shift beneath the mental and emotional activity of the mind to a state of deep consciousness that promotes extreme relaxation using guided words and imagery.  We begin with gentle stretching and movement then settle into our most comfortable relaxing posture.  This allows a space to explore what we really need in the moment.  One Yoga Nidra class is equivalent to 4 hours of deep sleep and who couldn’t use that kind of sleep…  Class is for all levels including those with emotional strain, PTSD as well as pre and  post natal. Use your class card, membership or pay as a drop-in to attend. 

Date:  This class will return to 1x each month in Fall

Location: North Tacoma Studio
