Millions of people who practice yoga are aware that it is a wonderful way to improve flexibility, balance, muscle tone, and endurance. These benefits are excellent reasons to practice yoga, but there are more extraordinary and transforming benefits to be derived from the ancient practice of yoga. At last, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga brings spirituality back to the practice of yoga.
What are The Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga?
Since its release in 1994, Deepak Chopra’s book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success has improved the lives of millions around the world. Through seven easily understood principles, the Seven Spiritual Laws of Success teaches that harmony, happiness, and abundance are available to anyone willing to embrace a consciousness-based approach to life.
Chopra Center co-founders, Drs. Deepak Chopra and David Simon, have designed The Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga, a daily yoga practice to unite body, mind, and spirit.
Each class teaches one of the Seven Spiritual Laws, allowing the full integration of that principle on and off the mat. Every class plays a crucial role in the yoga journey to enlightenment while providing a wealth of mantras practice, breathing techniques, and yoga poses.
