Yoga Wisdom at Work: DAY TWO: Focus on the Yamas and the Niyamas LIMITED

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Most Americans think of yoga as only doing the physical postures (asanas) on a mat in a gym, studio or home. Yoga is actually much more rich and complex, with a beautiful philosophy containing eight branches of study (asanas being the third of those.)

By relating all aspects of yoga to the workplace — using simple, everyday language — Maren & Jamie help people see how they can integrate the intricacies of this advanced spiritual tradition.

In this highly interactive, conversational workshop, they help people discover the pragmatic practices that can be be adapted and lived throughout anyone's work day. In addition, they will share inspiring stories from practitioners in a variety of professions to breathe life into the ways these precepts can enhance work satisfaction and success.

The workshop includes an overview of the Eight Limbs, with a focus on the first two limbs. Limb One (the Yamas) provides an ethical framework for the ways people work. Limb Two (the Niyamas) provides a personal guide to conduct and self-development. Throughout the workshop, Maren & Jamie will also use guided meditation (meditation is Limb 8), and breathing techniques (pranayama, Limb 4). 

DAY ONE: Overview of the eight limbs
DAY TWO: Focus on the Yamas (moral code) incorporating short asana practice, meditation and breathing. Focus on the Niyamas (personal conduct and self-development), incorporating a short asana practice, meditation and breathing
