On Ahimsa

Yoga is more than a workout.  It’s an 8 limbed philosophy that lays over all cultural and religious belief systems.  It doesn’t matter your nationality, your race, your economic situation, the 8 limbed path is for all people.  One of the 8 limbs is the Yamas, a set of principles that when practiced allow the […]
