It's time to show Niyama some love:

Niyama, since it first opened well over a decade ago, has always been a studio looking to provide yoga and create community while being committed to an idea of Karma: unselfishly trying to do some good, while not worrying about the fruits of that, and trusting in that.

SO MUCH of Niyama revolves around that. It's why every year we've had 100% of our Thanksgiving classes go straight to the Greater Chicago Food Depository, and why we work with RefugeeOne during the holidays with the Giving Tree. It's why when we choose our Karma Charities we've always looked for local, small-scale charities to work-with: where we know the money we donate truly does provide the most good from Curt's Cafe and Syd Rocks, to Feed the Dream, Designs for Dignity and all the other groups we've worked with over the years.

At a certain point though, Niyama needs a bit of love/self-care for itself, in the form of fixing up the studio so we can continue. It's not just self-care, but something that is a bit overdue. For it to succeed though, it requires help from the community that has grown here since we first opened.

The study of anatomy helps us deepen our understanding of the physical aspects of yoga.  The study of subtle body energy deals with the positioning of the prana. In this workshop series you will learn basic anatomy and the relationship of the muscles and bones through the seven loops of energy. You will learn what muscles need to be activated to engage the specific spirals. By attending you will gain a keener eye for the engagement and energy in the body. Both yoga students and teachers will benefit from this deeper understanding of anatomy and subtle body energy in their bodies. 

Yoga Alliance (YA) continuing education hours will be earned for YA teachers. Individuals are encouraged to attend both, but can attend either one separately as well.
