5-class series. $10 per class/ $40 for all five
Tuesdays in May 5/4, 5/11, 5/18, 5/25 and June 6/1
Join Deborah for exploration of the 5 Yamas of yoga philosophy. In each one-hour asana class, we’ll focus on pairing clear, safe physical alignment with our intention to live in peace with ourselves and others. This class is appropriate for all levels.
Not sure what the “Yamas” are? Here’s a very brief intro. The Yamas are centuries-old guiding principles of yoga practice. There have been several translations of the Sanskrit descriptions of these teachings. The following description is based on a translation published in 2007 by Nischala Joy Devi in her book The Secret Power of Yoga. She refers to the Yamas as “Reflection of our true nature”. They are: Ahimsa–Love and reverence for all; Satya–Truth/integrity; Astheya–Generosity and honesty; Brahmacharya–Living in moderation; Aparigraha–Acknowledging abundance.
Deborah has been practicing/studying/teaching yoga since the late 1990’s. Her first certification was through Kripalu in 2000. She completed her second teacher training, in the Ashaya style of yoga, in October 2020. Ashaya is a Sanskrit word that means “abode of the heart”. Besides offering solid physical alignment in asana practice, Ashaya inspired practice is geared towards aligning the head and the heart towards deeper self awareness, optimal health, and a peaceful planet. Her goal is to share these teachings with each individual through mindful, fun movement sequences.
