This yoga workshop will include the yoga philosophy based on the eight limbs of yoga, breath control (pryanama), a brief introduction of the different types of yoga, and will conclude with body relaxation/meditation!
Yoga is a practice that is done for the benefit of the mind, body, and soul. Yoga is a holistic practice that involves eight limbs. These are:
-Yama, which involves abstaining from violence, falsehood, and greed
-Niyama, which includes purity of thought and action
-Asana, which includes postures or poses
-Pranayama, which includes breath work
-Pratyahara, which means withdrawal from external objects and senses to the center of one's being
-Dharana, meaning concentration on a single object or point
-Dhyana meaning meditation with complete focus on one object or point without any distractions in mind or body
-Samadhi one becomes fully aware of the present moment and experiences complete awareness and equanimity.

SUMMIT AREA YMCA
In 1886, we were founded as the Young Men's Christian Association, but today, we are The Y. An association that values, and is made stronger by, its diverse people. We stand for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility — For a better us. We are committed to creating equal opportunity for all regardless of gender, age, disability, income, ethnicity, sexual orientation or religious affiliation. We strive to create a welcoming and inclusive culture in which our four core values — responsibility, honesty, caring and respect — are integral to everyday operations.
Each year, as one of the area’s leading 501(c)3 charitable organizations, the Summit Area YMCA serves more than 15,000 individuals with our free and fee-based programs and services in an area spanning the New Jersey communities of Berkeley Heights, Gillette, Millburn, New Providence, Short Hills, Springfield, Stirling and Summit. Our history is rooted in working side-by-side with our neighbors to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Through the generosity of our members, donors, and partners, we are able to offer financial assistance for our programs and services to those in need.
