“A shared cultural commitment to honesty supports a culture of awakening.” – M. Stone
“This yoga should be practiced with firm determination and perseverance, without any mental reservation or doubts.” – Bhagavad Gita
All of my students will be looking into Yoga for the last week of our term in India. We will be commenting on a forum, and making connections to the content we have covered throughout the semester and linking it to Yogi philosophy.
Day 2: (Prezi slides 25-52)
Yamas: Ahimsa and Satya

- How can we respons to violence with non-violence? How can we make it effective?
- Can we apply the yama of honesty to every aspect of our personal and cultural lives from how we speak to one another to how we determine how much we need?
Reflect on Forward Bend, Cat/Cow, Warrior 1, Warrior 2, or the poem “View with a Grain of Sand.”
