Dhrti Yama - Calm Constancy

Thank you! Hope you have a peaceful day

There are 10 Yamas and 10 Niyamas - daily values and practices from ancient Vedic Sanskrit texts that help us reach our full potential for personal, spiritual, and professional growth, and to liberate us from mental, spiritual, and physical suffering.  


This October, we are inviting you to align your life with the value of determination and consistency using the profound tools of yoga practice and holistic wellness. Dhrti (pronounced like ‘deerty’) is the value of firm determination and perseverance towards our purpose against all challenges. It gives consistency to our character and our actions. 

It helps us establish and keep our boundaries with grace, commit to our purpose, build our confidence and our faith. The success is INEVITABLE when we embody this Yama.  Read about 101 Old Skier George Jedenoff from the East Bay who truly embodies this yogic value. When we embody calm constancy, we avoid self-sabotage, which supports our mental health. When we embody calm constancy, the whole universe supports us and opportunities will be opening up to create ease and flow.  

What will YOU introduce in your life as a calm constancy this month? this year? your whole life?  Please contemplate it from every angle possible.  

The physical focus this month is on hamstrings and low back. In every class, our teacher's team will be sharing all the different ways of safely strengthening and releasing tension around our hamstrings and low back, plus the daily mindfulness tools to grow our determination, mental clarity & perseverance using the yogic value of calm constancy (Sanskrit:  Dhṛti धृति ). Join our yoga and core classes this month to rehab and build supportive muscles around the hips and low back, and master a few playful poses such as Splits and Lord of the Dance. 


And, please join us in congratulating our neighbor- yogi-swimmer and an incredible badass Erika Gliebe for opening a conscious grocery store for our neighborhood and beyond Replenish Grocers, located at 958 Columbus ave. They celebrate Grand Opening Ceremony this Thursday! >
