What is Living Yoga?
…an opportunity to come together with the power of intention, to learn, to grow, and to expand our experience.
Living Yoga is Willow Street’s deeper studies program. Designed for students who wish to explore more of what practice has to offer!
At Willow Street, we are not only a friendly and accessible neighborhood yoga studio, but also as school for deeper study. We pride ourselves in having a deep connection to the remarkable tradition that is yoga. Living Yoga is one of our many expressions of this connection and is a great example of our bigger philosophy of growing, together and in relationship.
Even in its name, Living Yoga expresses that yoga is a bigger opportunity for consciousness in all parts of our lives. Although our work on the mat, and with the physical body, is a key opportunity and a great resource in the tradition, it only scratches the surface of the opportunities of the deeper tools.
Our Living Yoga programs are tailored to the interests of our teachers and community. We ask our faculty to follow their hearts, and to teach to what truly lights them up. The program structure is flexible to meet the needs of each topic and can include focused long weekends as well as multi-week and multi-month programs.
We find that there is a synergy that happens when we come together around shared interests, and we hope that you’ll find Living Yoga to be an opportunity for like-minded hearts to be more than the sum of our parts. Join us to explore an interest, make deep connections, and strengthen our community.
Ultimately, Living Yoga is an opportunity to come together with the power of intention, to learn, to grow, and to expand our experience from the power of our hearts.
Exploring the Yamas & Niyamas – Yoga’s Ethical Foundation
10 weeks with Terri Shuck
June 1–Aug 3
The yamas and niyamas represent the essence of living yoga. These jewels of wisdom are the first two limbs of the 8-fold path of yoga, providing a practical framework for cultivating a well-lived and joyful life. This online weekly study group will sequentially focus on each jewel through some short readings, journaling and group discussion, accompanied by a gentle touch of movement and mediation. Terri Shuck will facilitate this participatory learning process with the supporting text of Deborah Adele’s book “The Yamas & Niyamas – Exploring Yoga’s Ethical Practice,” available in the WSY boutique and online.
