The word YAMA has special meaning to our practitioners. In the practice of yoga, the "Yamas" and their complement "Niyamas" are the tenets of health and wellbeing. They include ways to live with restraint, self-control and discipline, and be a supportive and right-living member of a society. The most-frequently referenced "8 limbs" are: Ahimsa/non-violence, Satya/truthfulness, Asteya/non-stealing, Brahmacharya/awareness of the universe, Kshama/patience, Daya/compassion, Shaucha/purity. And in the Japanese language, "Yama" translates to Mountain, as in our logo. Here in Colorado we are surrounded by mountains, in which each of us can find beauty and challenge, peace and exertion, meditation and release. Join us and find your own meaning for "Yama."
