Silvia Mordini brings a unique passion and enthusiasm to studying the Yamas of the Eightfold Path of Yoga! Together we will explore the basic concepts of Yoga philosophy and discuss how to integrate them into our lives and teach peace in the world. 

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are the foundational text of yoga. Written over 2,000 years ago, they describe the eight limbs of yoga as well as the purpose, philosophy and practice of yoga. The sutras are a practical guide to living a more peaceful, balanced and happy life. Like asana practice creates balance and health in the body, the sutras include practices to remove the obstacles to our happiness and how to create balance in all other facets of life. Although the sutras are thousands of years old, their teachings are astonishingly relevant for today. They are a “handbook on happiness.”

Yoga Sutra Chapter 2 Verse 35 outlines Ahimsa, one of the five Yamas, guidelines for how we can live in harmony with others. This workshop will present 5 ways for the Urban Yogi to live their yoga by applying Ahimsa everyday.

1. Lovingkindness

2. Compassion / Connection / Respect

3. Safety / Balance / Self-care

4. Empathy / Choice / Forgiveness

5. Peace

Come prepared to journal. Just like Yoga, journaling is a form of creative expression that gives us deep insight into our own self-observations and learning for even greater transformation.  Journaling gives us insight into the held patterns of behavior, thoughts and feelings that have kept us from experiencing our potentiality or seeing clearly. When we can't make sense of things we restrict ourselves from uniting with our own true nature, joy!
