Niyamas: The Ethics of Yoga – IRL + Virtual options!


Event Details


The niyamas: A lecture and yoga practice

The yamas and niyamas are the first two limbs of the eight-limbed path, which is a step-by-step path towards the realization of yoga, as described in the ‘Yoga Sutras of Patanjali’. They are the most concrete places to start, as they relate directly to how you behave outwardly in the world and inwardly toward yourself. They’re like a map written to guide you on your life’s journey. Simply put, the yamas are things not to do, or restraints, while the niyamas are things to do, or observances. Together, they form a moral code of conduct.

The five niyamas, personal practices that relate to our inner world, include
• Saucha: purity
• Santosha: contentment
• Tapas: self-discipline, training your senses
• Svadhyaya: self-study, inner exploration
• Ishvara Pranidhana: surrender

We will explore each of the niyamas, followed by some movement, so bring your yoga mat and a notebook and pen.

You can choose to attend this special class IRL (In Real Life) at our Lewes studio – or – VIRTUALLY (via Zoom) from your home.

Open to members + non-members.

Space is limited for IRL. Pre-registration is required. Masks must be worn inside the studio.

Virtual participants should download Zoom to the device they will use before the class. 30 minutes before the class begins, a unique link will be emailed so you can join the IRL group and instructor in the studio.

$30 per person for one day
*OR save $10 and pay $50 to join us for both days (4/25 yamas + 4/25 niyamas)!

Instructor:
Terri Surabian, 500-HR YTT
