50 Minute Yoga Class – 8 Limbs of Yoga Part 1: Yama



Yoga is more than just poses, but through a physical practice we can delve deeper. This is the first of 8 classes that focus on the Eight Limbs Yoga. In this Yama flow we talk about ahimsa, satya, asteya, bramacharya, and aparigraha. What’s all that? Read the blog and practice along!

  4. Thank you so much for this series! I'm starting my YTT in about a month. I've been studying the 8 limbs and this is a great practice to help me begin memorizing them with practical application.
    With gratitude. Blessings & Namaste <3

  5. Greetings. I've been randomly practicing to your videos for 2 months now. had already deemed you my favorite teacher. until today. when I first experienced your Yama class…which includes mental stretching with the physical. now your my more – favorite teacher. Even though my flexibility is beyond this class I got so much more out of my 50min than before. I'm looking forward to this entire series and to see if you produce more Like this with the verbal teaching with the physical. Thank you and your staff and the students. .p.s I really like having both learning students along with those who just look perfect – together in the same class. its nice to have someone who I can wobble with๐Ÿ˜‚

Literally love how you talk about stealing energy it really resonates with me I see it happening all the time around me and your words help me be more self aware of everything I do after I'm done with this practice.. I just love it. I am addicted to these 8 limb videos because of the poses AND because I love your insight & wisdom ๐Ÿ™‚
