The Third Yama – Asteya

By |2021/07/14|Categories: Yoga philosophy|Tags: , , , |0 Comments

In my previous post about Ashtanga, I mentioned that the yogic philosophy recommends the practice of the 8 limbs to overcome suffering. The first of the 8 limbs is "Yama". The yamas are 5 moral guidelines to follow, and they are mainly about our interactions with the world around us and ourselves. We've already explored the first one, Ahimsa (non [...]

Fascia – and why you feel even less flexible in the morning

By |2021/06/06|Categories: Asana|Tags: , , |0 Comments

Have you ever noticed that the less you move, the less you *want* to move? There are definitely several factors to this, but I think one of them has to do with our fascia. One of my students told me today that when we stretch in the morning (in my Stretching Together class), she feels like her body is frozen [...]
