The 8 Fold Path of Yoga philosophy arises from the Yamas and Niyamas, ethical precepts and practices for living a fully enriched and embodied life.  Ahimsa, the first Yama, is often translated as “non-violence” or “doing no harm,” and forms the basis of all yoga beliefs and practices.   When we think of non-violence, we usually envision not hurting others, and, truly we value serving others as the highest expression of living an ethical life. However, we must also extend ahimsa to ourselves, loving and nurturing ourselves to enhance our well-being.

Self-care is a potent way to nourish one’s self in order to live a vibrant and meaningful life. Self-care can be as simple as sipping a cup of tea, taking a hot bath, or a walk in the woods. It can be having lunch with friends, practicing yoga, or taking a deep breath to release stress.

Come learn how to create self-care practices that truly nurture you and create a life of vibrancy and aliveness!

This workshop meets on four Tuesdays from 6:15-7:45 pm beginning on February 19th, 2019.
