The Yamas & Niyamas – Dharma Discussion

The Yamas & Niyamas – Dharma Discussion

The Yamas and Niyamas are the first two limbs of the eight limbs of Yoga. With five points each, the yamas and niyamas deal with good behavior toward others and disciplined actions toward Self. We will explore each one and discuss how we can be more mindful and intentional in our daily practice.

The first week we will discuss Yamas, the Second Niyamas.

Donation based course and all welcome to attend. Bring a journal and tea or water. This will be discussion only-no posture so come as you are!

1.  What originally brought you to yoga?
My whole life I had been interested in Eastern Spirituality and its connection to science and a modern scientific worldview, and its claims on being able to master and understand the mind. I was always a lay fan of Buddhism and esoterism until I moved to Grand Rapids. It became clear that I need an outlet to center myself and express myself as a way to balance a stressful work environment. A friend of mine invited me to Yoga at Seva and I haven’t left since.

2.  What keeps you coming back?
No matter how stressed or tense I am, I know I can do something holistically positive for myself on my mat.

3.  What is your favorite asana and why?

4.  What do you love about Seva?
The eclectic background and interests of all of the teachers makes every class a new experience.

5.  What do you bring off your mat from your practice?
Willpower, mindfulness and compassion

6.  Favorite Book:
Thought as a system by David Bohm

7.  Favorite Place to Visit:
Northern Michigan

8.  Food:
No bake cookies
