*Learn to Live Your Yoga: Ahimsa

In the Learn to Live Your Yoga workshops we will be exploring one yama at a time. The yamas are the first of eight limbs of yoga, and they help us ask questions to live a more authentic life. Reflection on the yamas moves us towards a well-rounded yoga practice that supports us on in all of our endeavors-- they aren't meant to replace, but rather to bolster and help us examine, any other belief systems we hold.

A discussion on the specific yama we will be working on that day will be followed by a flow-style yoga class inspired by the topic. The workshop will end with a guided journaling session to reflect on the practice.

Each session will be able to stand alone-- come to one, or come to many!

The schedule will be as follows:

  • May 20: Ahimsa, or non-violence
  • June 10: Satya, or truthfulness July 15: Asteya, or non-stealing
  • August 12: Brahmacharya, or non-indulgence
  • September 9: Aparigraha, or non-gripping (aka, the art of letting go!)

Proceeds from this workshop will go to support the Veterans Yoga Project annual free four-day retreat for Montana veterans and their families at the Feathered Pipe Ranch.

I studied for my 200-hour certificate with the support of some people who saw how yoga helped me live more fully and with more clarity. I am passionate about yoga and the good it does our bodies and minds, and I love to educate others about what I am learning! I also hold a Masters of Science in Health and Human Performance, and am a certified Community Health Education Specialist. I am currently working on completing my 300-hour certificate to expand my knowledge about the art of teaching and practicing yoga, and I'm proud to have provided over 1,000 hours of yoga instruction since 2012. -Anna Bradley
