Practising studio etiquette through the observation of Patanjali's 8 limbs of yoga

As we graduate yet another group of brand new yogis from our New to Yoga series, I am excited for them to take their next steps on their yoga journey. This might be a good opportunity to review of some of the yoga etiquette, or protocol if you like, that we as seasoned yogis may also need reminding of once in a while. Much of what we refer to is based upon the yamas and niyamas - or social restraints and observances - which are yoga’s ethical guidelines as laid out in the first two limbs of Patanjali’s eightfold path.
