“Within you, there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at anytime and be yourself.” – Herman Hesse, Siddhartha
As we continue our year-long exploration of the yamas and niyamas, May brings us to the fourth yama: Brahmacharya, which has a range of interpretations ranging from celibacy to non-excess to walking with God. The concept of preserving vital energy for the purpose of realizing one’s highest potential, one’s divine nature, is a common thread among them all.
Come breathe with us! Pranayama, or breathwork through control of the vital life force, is our most readily available yoga tool. When we notice our breath, we notice life!

Breathe work is an accessible way to deepen your yoga practice and it will support clear thinking off the yoga mat in your daily life.
