The Yamas & Niyamas: Exploring Yoga's Ethical Practice

By Deborah Adele
The first two limbs of the eight-fold path of yoga sutrasthe basic text for classical yogaare examined in this spiritual guide to the practice of yoga. Foundational to all yogic thought, they are considered to be the guidelines to the yoga way of livingthat free individuals to take ownership of their lives, direct them toward the fulfillment they seek, and gain the skills to choose attitude, thought, and action. The first five guidelines are referred to as the yamasa Sanskrit word that translates to "restraints"and encompass nonviolence, truthfulness, not stealing, nonexcess, and nonpossessiveness. The last five are referred to as the niyamas, or observancespurity, contentment, self-discipline, self-study, and surrender.A self-study section at the end of each chapter may also be used by instructors for group discussion.
