Yamas & Niyamas; Yogic Principles

  • Yoga One 609 Broadway Street Alexandria, MN, 56308 United States (map)

Introduction to Ashtanga, or the 8 limbs of yoga. We will be covering the first two primarily; the Yamas and the Niyamas. These two are sometimes called the yogaic "Do's" and "Dont's". We look at these as helpful guides. As teachers. What they mean to us personally and what are they really showing us? Why and how can they benefit us and make our practice easier and more full.

Ashtanga means eight limbs or branches, of which asana or physical yoga posture is merely one branch, breath or pranayama is another. The first two limbs - Yamas and Niyamas - are given special emphasis to be practiced in conjunction with the 3rd and 4th limbs (asana and pranayama).
