8 Limbs of Yoga Series- 1st Limb: Yamas

Join us at Vital Medicine for the Soul as we move through this in-depth series of the 8 limbs of yoga. The 8 limbs are attributed to the Indian sage (wise man), Patanjali. Patanjali created a philosophical work called the Yoga Sutras, a series of poems and stories dedicated to the practice of how to live a more meaningful life.

In this series, we will discover and share ideas and activities on how to lead a life full of purpose, perspective, self-love, service, and love for others.

The series will run every 2 weeks on a Saturday afternoon. The cost for the series is $200 (intro plus 8 workshops). Alternatively, you may attend any one of the workshops for $30/each.

You will also be introduced to and become familiar with the Chirapsia Energy Vibration Technique*.

Each 2 hour interactive class will explore various avenues to assist you personally as well as provide you the tools to assist those around you. You may attend each class individually or build ability and knowledge, participating in each class as a series.
