8 Limbs is committed to being a supportive and welcoming place to learn and grow
through the mind-body practices of yoga.
We root our commitment in the eight limbs of yoga, precepts for living that originated in South Asia and Northern Africa, and honor the lineage of teachers that have informed us as practitioners of yoga in the West. We pledge to practice all eight limbs of yoga within our business and ourselves.
The eight limbs of yoga are yama (attitudes toward our environment), niyama (attitudes toward ourselves), asana (physical postures), pranayama (breathing practices), pratyahara (sensory restraint), dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation), and samadhi (complete integration).
We aim to provide classes, workshops, and other events geared to supporting people of all backgrounds and levels.

To welcome beginners to yoga, we have several Intro Series sessions to choose from. Continuing students can choose from the many drop-in classes each day, Levels I-III. They may also deepen their practice through Series, Workshops, our Seasonal Retreats, and Teacher Training. We offer group Hatha Yoga classes, Pre and Postnatal Yoga, Kids, & Tween Yoga, Yoga for 50+ and more at our neighborhood studios in the Capitol Hill, Phinney Ridge, Wedgwood, and West Seattle neighborhoods. We aim to foster yoga centers that meet the needs of the community and are always open to your suggestions.
