What is Yoga, Really? An introduction to the practice beyond the mat. with Dariya Quenneville Sun, Jan 7, 2018 at 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm


How do you define yoga? How do you practice throughout the day?
In this 2 hour all-levels workshop, you will learn about the holistic definition of yoga and tools to help you integrate the practice throughout your life outside the studio. Using Patanjali’s 8 limbed path as a foundation to explore and experience all aspects of yoga. During the workshop you will gain knowledge and insight of:
- the 5 Yamas (ethical practices)
- the 5 Niyamas (personal observances/relationship with self)
- Asana (refinement of the body)
- Pranayama (regulation of breath)
- Pratyahara (sense-withdrawal)
- Dharana (concentration)
- Dhyana (meditation) and Samadhi (complete attention).
Perhaps you will quickly realize you’ve been practicing a lot more yoga a day than your 1 hour class! The workshop will include group discussion, journaling, movement, breath work, meditation and a booklet with additional thoughts and exercises to take home.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
