Yoga s Yamas and Niyamas Excerpt :

"Finally, a truly accessible, comprehensive guide on how to apply yoga's yamas and niyamas to everyday life. Both for the yogi and non-yogi alike, this beautiful manual has powerful teachings about relating to self and others. I can't wait to share it with my yoga students and yoga teacher trainees." ~Stacey Vespaziani, E-RYT and owner of South Hills Power Yoga and Bloomfield Yoga The Yamas and Niyamas are yoga's essential, ethical principles originally mentioned in the Yoga Sutras, the first written explanation of yoga compiled by Patanjali over 2,000 years ago. In the West, yoga is mostly known as a form of exercise, though the Sutras say yoga is an eight-part system working in unison to control the mind. These "limbs" as they are called in the Sutras include the Yamas and Niyamas, breathwork, yoga postures, and various stages of meditation. The Yamas (how to treat others) and the Niyamas (how to care for yourself) include values such as peace, truth, gratitude, and contentment. When practiced, they make life more manageable and meaningful. Although similar to other moral or religious codes, the Yamas and Niyamas are more freeing than restrictive and a thought process over a hard set of rules. They are basically 10 ways to be a better person. YOGA'S YAMAS AND NIYAMAS is a practical, relatable yoga philosophy text. Informational and instructional, this book is for anyone curious about yoga philosophy, self-improvement, or is seeking more out of life. It is also of value to yoga instructors who want to incorporate yoga philosophy into their teaching or yoga teacher trainees who are deepening their understanding of the first two limbs of yoga. In this book is a chapter for each Yama and Niyama explaining what it is as well as a physical yoga practice, consideration, mantra, journal prompt, and a personal account of how the author used the principle in her own life. This book can be applied as a textbook, resource, or workbook to live life with peace, purpose, awarene

Yogic Ethics for a Balanced Mind Excerpt :

Essential reading for anyone interested in philosophy, spirituality or yoga, this book examines the concept of ethics within the context of the yogic world-view: their practical, psychological and social implications in the historical as well as modern setting. The author proposes that Yama-Niyama are designed to create the mental balance, clarity and perception necessary for the expansion of empathy and therefore consciousness which is the essence of spiritual meditation. Recognizing the relativity of our daily experiences yet based in certain essential archetypical truths, they are a means to produce an integrated personality on the individual level and the foundations of a healthy society collectively. Yama-Niyama are an ethical formulation which work to challenge one's individual limitations and preconceptions, producing a continuous process of mental expansion and deepening awareness of what is means to be human.

Being Human Excerpt :

In recent years, the practice of yoga has been heavily westernized. Some might criticize how far we have deviated from its origins, yet yoga's increasing popularity has touched many more lives than it otherwise would have. While an asana practice is becoming a normal part of the day for many of us, yoga's deeper teachings are often left unexplored. The Yamas and Niyamas are a foundational part of yoga beyond asana. The Yamas show us how our choices and actions impact the world and its people. Their practice helps us step lightly through life as we become more intentional. The Niyamas teach us about ourselves. When we focus inward, we begin to notice patterns that reveal our opportunities, our purpose, and our truest self. Being Human explores each Yama and Niyama from a lens of imperfection and without the expectation of a destination. When we begin our journey knowing that there is no finish line, we open doors we might have left closed. And when we accept that we can't get it "right" or "wrong," we create space for life to unfold without expectation.
