Because yoga is more than a physical practice.
One of our most popular episodes to date has been about our individual journeys with the physical practice of yoga
. And while we are firm believers that rolling out your mat and doing the work is important, it's nothing compared to the non-physical aspects of yoga. Betsy, our resident yogi, walks us through the first two limbs of yoga — the moral, ethical, and personal codes that create the foundation of yoga that are supposed to be in place before you even hit the mat. So join us for a conversation about the yamas (limb one) and how they translate to our internal world or niyamas (limb two).
We’d love to know!
