JIVAMUKTI ASHRAM: How the practice of yamas informs your karma yoga

We are happy to present the RESIDENTIAL ASHRAM INTENSIVE


“Hasten to do good; refrain from evil. If you neglect the good, evil can enter your mind.” –The Dhammapada

Karma Yoga, the yoga of selfless service, is one of the four classical forms of yoga, as described by the Bhagavad Gita. The Yamas (restraints) are the ethical principles that form the foundation of a Yoga practice according to the Yoga Sutra of Patañjali. Deliberately engaging in uplifting society by serving others purifies the heart and mind and makes the practice of Yamas easier. Yoga practices, especially Asana can easily lead to spiritual ego and/or a self-centered, narcissistic body cult. Karma Yoga is essential for practitioners who consider themselves compassionate activists and want to progress on the spiritual path. Maria and Yogeswari will teach vigorous Jivamukti classes and share what inspired them to create their respective foundations (Fundacion Radika and AZAHAR Foundation).
