The YogaYAMA Method

We use movement, storytelling, and conversation to teach emotional resilience, character, and connection. Each class features a story that incorporates character-building concepts from yoga philosophy.

Benefits include:

  • Reduced anxiety
  • Increased emotional resilience
  • Improved communication

  • Physical fitness & fun
  • Healthier relationships
  • More focus & confidence

What are the yamas and niyamas?

Yoga principles include the five yamas (universal, pro-social values) and the five niyamas (personal skills essential for emotional resilience). These 2,000-year-old insights into the human condition continue to assist our personal development to this day.

The Yamas & Niyamas:
A Path Toward Connection

Why learn about the yamas and niyamas?

They teach integrity – the alignment of what we think, say and do.

Yamas such as kindness (ahimsa) and honesty (satya) are examples of acting with integrity. They are how we naturally behave when we have a healthy sense of self.

When integrity is established, trust follows. Trust is the foundation of deep, fulfilling interpersonal connections.


YogaYAMA classes use story and movement to demonstrate the benefits of living in alignment with the yamas & niyamas. Students also learn yoga poses, breathwork, and meditation techniques to stay clear-minded and open-hearted, even when difficult situations and strong emotions arise.
