Yamas Study Group with Judy Rubin
Last Sunday of the month Jan-May 2020 4-5:15pm
Suggested Donation $5 Per Session
Yogic philosophy consists of an 8-fold path. One of those limbs are Asana or postures which we practice in our yoga classes. Two of the limbs deal with ethical guidelines; the Yamas and Niyamas. In this study group, we will be using Deborah Adele’s book The Yamas and Niyamas to learn about the first five guidelines, the Yamas (which include non-violence, truthfullness, non-stealing, non-excess and non-possessiveness). Sessions will include introduction to the monthly Yama and time to debrief from the questions for exploration from the text. For the flow of the group, we hope to have participants commit to all of the sessions. Group size limited to 10.
We will be meeting in the “tea room” in the Aloha building. Tea and cookies provided! Required Text: The Yamas and Niyamas by Deborah Adele.

What is Mantra? What are Mala beads? Is Mantra part of the Yogic Path?
Join Raji for an introduction to the world of Mantra. The repetition of Mantra, called Japa, is an ancient meditative tool which can ease suffering and bring us closer to our true potential. It is a powerful modality that can be applied to all life situations. With the proper guidance, the practice of Mantra can change your life, plus you need not have any experience with Yoga or Mantra or have any specific spiritual belief to obtain the benefits!
