There is a book, that can be bought at a reasonable price ($20) by Deborah Adele “The Yamas and Niyamas: Exploring yoga’s ethical practice”- that is helpful if you want to explore these principles more deeply.

The Flow Yoga  movements will shift between standing and floor postures and the practice will be designed to recharge body and mind.   Please wear comfortable clothing and have either a yoga mat or socks/shoes that grip the floor.
