Destin Yoga by the Sea honors the roots of yoga...
This is a very simple way to explain a small part of a very long journey that should be enjoyed along the way to ones chosen path.
|Yamas ~ Guidelines for how we interact with the outer world. Social disciplines to guide us in our relationships with others, with relation to the yoga poses.|
~The five Yamas are~
|Ahimsa ~Non-Violence, Maintaining Compassion (being kind to (all) as well as yourself in the pose, do not judge yourself or others)|
|Asteyaor ~Truth (your truth)...(except where you are in the pose)|
|Satya ~ Non- Stealing (coveting) (don't compare or compete with others in the class that may be deeper in a pose, don't hold back on your potential in the pose)|
|Brahmacharya ~ Moderation (do not push to hard or force the pose)|
|Aparigraha ~ Non- possessiveness or non-attachment (to let go, focus on the present moment, open in the pose, stretch)|
|Niyamas ~ How we interact with ourselves, our internal world .Niyama is about self-regulation – harnesses the energy generated from our yoga practice, helping us maintain a positive environment in which to grow on our own chosen spiritual path or style of yoga.|
~The five Niyamas are~
|Shaucha ~ Cleanliness or Purity (sweat or toxic out impurities in the body- in styles like Power Flow, the release of tensions in the muscles)|
|SantoshaTapas ~ Contentment (can be a uplifting challenge in an intense stretching pose such as Hero)|
|Swadhyaya ~ Austerity or Discipline (focusing on alignment, engaging muscles needed for the strength needed for active poses)|
|Ishwara ~ study or self study (simple learning how your body works and feels in the poses, "Listen to your body" Consistently practicing and growing)|
|Pranidhana ~ Surrender (allowing release in
the pose, the posture of yoga mudra when your head is below your heart
is a symbol of surrender, relax and "Just Be")
