Would you be interested in getting even more out of your yoga practice? How about taking that peace you find on your mat into your life with more consistency?

Whether you are a seasoned practitioner or brand new to yoga, this 2-hour workshop is appropriate for you. We will explore the practice, history and philosophy of Patanjali’s 8 limbs of yoga that have brought transformation to people’s lives for thousands of years! The 8 limbs are the source and foundation of all styles and practices of yoga you have heard about. When we think of yoga, we often think first about the poses… the poses only represent the 3rd limb. In this workshop, we will experience all 8 limbs through lecture, discussion and experiential exercises. Bring a pen and paper if you like to take notes and be prepared to leave with:
• An understanding of how the 8 limbs translate in our modern lives
• A map to guide your own practice and life towards balance and enlightenment
• A deeper appreciation for yoga
