100 Hour Certification


The art and science of yoga is dedicated to creating a union between body, mind, and spirit. Its objective is to assist the practitioner in using the breath and body to foster an awareness of ourselves as individualized beings intimately connected to the unified whole of creation.  In short, it is about creating balance and equanimity so as to live in peace, good health, and harmony with the greater whole.

This art of right living was perfected and practiced in India thousands of years ago and the foundations of yoga philosophy were written down in the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, approximately 200 AD.  This sacred text describes the inner workings of the mind and provides a blueprint for controlling its restlessness so as to enjoy lasting peace.

The first two limbs of the philosophical yogic tree that Patanjali describes are the fundamental ethical precepts called the yamas, and the niyamas. These can also be looked at as guidelines of universal morality and personal observances.  The Yamas and niyamas are suggestions of how we should deal with people around us and how we can optimally shape our attitude and behavior. The attitude we have toward people and things outside ourselves are the yamas, how we relate to ourselves inwardly are the niyamas (pronounced nee yamas).  Both are mostly concerned with how we use our energy in relationship to others and to ourselves.
