Beyond Asana: Yamas Edition- 3 Part Series
BEYONG ASANA: YAMAS EDITION- 3 PART SERIES
This series is for those seeking a deeper understanding not only of yoga but of themselves.
The practice of yoga derives in part from Patanjali’s 8 Limb Path. This path outlined all the ways that we, as yogis, can bring ourselves ever closer to understanding the inner self (also known as “enlightenment"). Asana (or postures) that we are so familiar with through social media is only one of these Eight Limbs. While the other limbs are included in every class here at Zen, it is helpful to contemplate these limbs further with more time to reflect on what they mean to us both as individuals and collectively.
YAMA is the very first limb listed in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras in which he describes:
THE 5 ETHICAL RESTRAINTS OF YOGA. This series will take an intensive look at each Yama and discuss how it influences our practice and can be integrated both on and off the mat.
Dates: Thursdays, Mar. 26, Apr. 30, June 4 from 11-11:45am @ ZHY NORTH

STAY TUNED FOR OUR BIGGEST CHALLENGE OF THE YEAR!
Yoga for Veterans Initiative
YOGA FOR VETS INITIATIVE
This will be ongoing for any new active duty or Veteran to Zen Hot Yoga.
You can receive your first 4 classes for FREE (to be used in 30 days).
Yoga has proven to be beneficial to our military and veterans for many reasons including anxiety and PTSD. Yoga is a great alternative to other drugs and therapy and can calm the nervous system and help heal physical and emotional trauma. One of the most important things for veterans, and for human beings in general, is to find a group of people or a community who support and understand them. Practicing yoga with other veterans can be a great opportunity to bond and share a calm – and even spiritual – connection.
Over 20 Veterans a day commit suicide. We want to be a safe place for healing and connection. We hope you will take advantage of this offering.
If you or someone you know is thinking about suicide, please reach out for help.
