When one thinks about “yoga”, the postures and movements of the body, also known as Asana, are typically what comes to mind. However, Asana is just one part of the Eightfold Path of Yoga in the ancient teachings of the sage Patanjali. Go a little deeper into yogic philosophy with yoga instructor Nina Levenduski in this discussion of the Yamas and Niyamas, or moral codes of conduct in the tradition of yoga.
The stillness, spirituality and deepening of the mind-body-spirit connection Ms. Levenduski has found in yoga and meditation inspired her to become an instructor. Recently graduated from a 200-hour Yoga Alliance training program, she currently teaches gentle Hatha yoga at the Woodbury Meditation & Yoga Center (WMYC).
This complimentary program is to open everyone, and includes instruction and practice of meditation. WMYC is located at 122 West Side Road in Woodbury, CT. Everyone is welcome to come earlier, at 5:00 pm, for a complimentary sample yoga class with Nina.
WMYC is a not-for-profit educational institution offering meditation, yoga, tai chi/qigong and a variety of programs weekly, as well as complimentary Sunday evening events including meditation instruction. WMYC welcomes individuals to try a class for free and see first-hand how yoga changes lives. The Center welcomes cancer patients/survivors, caregivers, veterans and others in need of assistance, and offers free or reduced-cost classes.
