“Yoga is a sophisticated system that extends far beyond doing postures; it is literally a way of living.” – Deborah Adele
Our theme for the month of October is compassion. So for our next two yoga chats we will be discussing compassion as it directly relates to ahimsa. Ahimsa is the first tenet in yoga’s ethical guidelines known as the Yamas. It is so important, it is said to be the foundation of all yoga philosophy. How can we apply ahimsa as a way of living to be more compassionate, loving human beings? We will be discussing this and more with the following questions:
- What is Ahimsa?
- What is the origination of the word ahimsa? (scripturally)
- Why is it important?
- What are some examples of ahimsa in the world? Leaders practicing or not practicing?
- How can we create and implement ahimsa in our daily life?
Please mark your calendars, share the word and invite your friends! We look forward to another inspiring chat!
“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” – Dalai Lama
