In addition, we provide ongoing weekend classes, workshops and events.
Compiled by the Sage Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras, the Eight Limbs of Raja or Royal Yoga are a progressive series of steps to purify the body and mind, ultimately leading the yogi to complete enlightenment. The first, and perhaps most important of these limbs is the Yamas.
The Yamas are five ethical codes of behavior to be practiced in word, thought and deed:
- Ahimsa - non-violence
- Satyam - truthfulness
- Brahmacharya - moderation in all things (control of all senses)
- Asteya - non-stealing
- Aparigraha - non-greed
I could not imagine a better set of ideals to strive for when operating a business geared to the enrichment of the body, mind and spirit.
