Many people consider yoga solely from the perspective of asana – the glorified, physical practice in the Western yoga aesthetic. But the heart of yoga, from the Bhagavad Gita and continuing throughout history, is using the discipline of a complete yoga practice to live one’s calling in service to our collective well-being. This workshop will consider definitions of karma yoga, seva and reinforce an embodied understanding of the yama/niyama to form a foundation of how we should not only consider modeling our behavior, but also serving the needs of others.
This workshop will offer dharma, reflection and an asana practice that underscores aspects of self-study and personal peace that we can use not only for ourselves, but in service to our communities. Attendees should bring a mat, blankets, blocks, a strap, an open mind and a cheerful heart.

About your teacher: Reggie is an RYT- 500 certified instructor who began his yoga journey in the midst of a toxic work environment, finding peace of mind and equanimity through disciplined practice. His life is a testament to the power of the practice to strengthen inner peace and mental flexibility in addition to the physical benefits of asana. Reggie teaches a variety of flows, mostly hatha-style, that combine deep breath, postural alignment and fluid motion – all that is required is a willingness to try something new and not take yourself so seriously.
