These meetings are Free and Open to everyone. We recomending having your own personal copy of the book as this is an ongoing study over the next few months.
The Yamas and Niyamas are yoga's ten ethical guidelines and are foundational to all yogic thought. They comprise the first two limbs of Yoga's eight-fold path and provide the toolkit you need for skillful living.
The Yamas and Niyamas are like a detailed map, telling you where you are and how to look for the next landmark. The Yamas and Niyamas free you to take ownership of your life and direct it towards the fulfillment you seek. Gaining the the skills to choose attitude, thought and action may be the grandest adventure you can choose.
In this book each Yama and Niyama has been given its own chapter in which the philosophy of the guideline is woven with practical examples and stories. At the end of the chapter Deborah provides questions that challenge the reader to find deeper insight.
