Immerse yourself in authentic Yoga practice…

Did you know that Yoga is not only physical movements on the mat?
Do you want to learn Yoga the way it really is, with all of its subtle aspects?
Heard of the 8 limbs but never quite got what each of these stands for?

Active Sanctuary Yoga is featuring a full introductory course  to the 8 limbs of Yoga!

What are the 8 limbs of Yoga?
Traditionally, the idea of Yoga (union) and the Yoga practice itself are consisted of 8 limbs, or parts:
Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi. All of these are essential practices on the path to spiritual awakening. They rely on each other, and as the Yogi grows in his practice he becomes familiar with all of these aspects. Rather than focusing only on one or two of the limbs (as we modern Yogis tend to do) and thus missing out on the richness of the practice and the fulfilment it can bring to our lives.

Date and time: 8 Wednesday night sessions, 07:45-08:45 PM, starting January 30th
Your teacher: Our founder and senior Yoga teacher, Anna Bukchin

What will we do?
Each week we will discuss one of the 8 limbs of Yoga. Each limb will be explored in theory and through an active practice.
Look at it as a mini workshop on each aspect of Yoga!
