Moving Beyond Asana: A two-part yoga philosophy workshop

Yoga is a journey of the self, through the self, to the self. It is a practice of internal transformation through observation, which gives way for the light of your true self to shine through. I believe that when we come to yoga, we are following an instinct to live well and to be happy. Most of us begin our journey of yoga with asana—or yoga posture—as a form of physical exercise or to heal a part of our body. Many of us then yearn for a greater understanding of the practice and how it can help us with our relationships with others, and to our self. In this two-part series, we will discuss the five niyamas in depth: cleanliness, contentment, self-discipline, self-study, and surrender. By learning about the niyamas, we can begin to understand how the whole practice of yoga is a process of examining our attitudes and habitual behaviors.

By becoming aware of our thoughts and actions, we can begin to unlock the magic of internal growth on and off the mat.
