Yoga IS the present moment.

What we put out to the world comes back to us. When we think negative thoughts we feel bad.

Class 4- Satya: Honesty

Honesty in body, speech and mind

Actions and thoughts that support ahimsa

Act of being authentic

Honest about ourselves

Do you keep your promises to yourself

Do you practice your self care?

Do your actions match your words?

Class 5 - Astesya: Not Stealing

“Not taking what is not freely given.”

The need to steal essentially arises because of a lack of faith in ourselves to be able to create what we need by ourselves. The moment we feel a sense of ‘lack’ in life - desire, want and greed arises. We begin to look for something to fill that ‘empty’ sensation, and often feel as though everyone else has what we want.

Class 6 - Samskara: A Ceremony or Rite

Our final class, a reflection on ourselves and our journey.
