    What Is Ethics For Yoga And Massage Therapists?

    Uncover the history, sacredness and translation of the ancient yamas and niyamas. Yamas (Sanskrit: यम), and their complement, Niyamas, represent a series of “right living” or ethical rules within Hinduism and Yoga. It means “reining in” or “control”. These are restraints for proper conduct as given in the Veda. They are a form of moral imperatives, commandments, rules or goals. This course may stimulate your thought processes and awaken the intuitive, ethical yogi or yogini that lives within you. Bring awareness to subtle forms of violent communication and inadvertent methods of stealing personal power. Learn how to distinguish culturally accepted, yet, unkind behavior and thought patterns that can occur in a therapist/client relationship. This is a fascinating learning experience for yoga instructors and massage therapists who appreciate the ancient eastern sciences as they relate to today’s world. This course also includes the Standard V. Roles and Boundaries, as required by the NCBTMB. By not loving all parts of ourselves, we are creating tiny acts of violence, which is not aligned with the principle of ahimsa. What kinds of ripples are you creating?
