Libby's Blog: July Highlights, Workshops, Teacher Highlights and More!

PRACTICE the Eight Limbs
The Yoga Sutras presented by Patanjali outline a plan for living that flows from action to knowledge to liberation. This plan, or path, has eight limbs that give the practitioner the tools to achieve profound peace by merging with the object of contemplation. Over the next few months we will explore the eight limbs of yoga.

In July our focus is the Yamas or the five moral restraints that concern our relationships with others:

Ahimsa: nonviolence
Satya: truthfulness
Asteya: nonstealing
Brahmacharya: continence or self restraint
Aparigraha: noncovetousness

WORKSHOPS

FAYC: Friday Afternoon Yoga Club
Instructor: Jenny Harrison
Friday, July 8th at 5:30pm
Please join us for July’s FAYC with an upbeat fun power flow yoga class with Jenny Harrison. The theme will focus on “being a yes”! Being a yes creates willingness, action, possibility, acceptance and expansion. It can help you deepen your practice as well as help you create what you want for your life. When you are a “yes” for something you are automatically a “no” for something else. Learn how to be a “no” for what no longer serves you. Come celebrate with us what you are about and learn how to change resistance to yes! We will have wine and snacks by the pool or lobby after class. All levels welcome.
FREE FOR MEMBERS
