The Yamas & Niyamas: Exploring Yoga’s Ethical Practice (Cover):

The Yamas & Niyamas: Exploring Yoga's Ethical Practice
The Yamas & Niyamas: Exploring Yoga’s Ethical Practice

There are five Yama’s which can be defined as guidelines and five knee Yama’s which are defined as observances.

  1. The first Yama is non-violence
  2. The second Yama is truthfulness
  3. The next non-stealing
  4. the fourth yama is non excess
  5. The last yama is non possessiveness

The Yamas and Niyamas, yoga’s ten ethical guidelines, are foundational to living skillfully. In this book, each Yama and Niyama has been given its own chapter in which the philosophy of the guideline is woven with practical examples and stories. At the end of the chapter a list of questions is provided for group or self study.

The Yamas and Niyamas are like a detailed map, telling you where you are and how to look for the next landmark. This book is the guide you need for your journey. The Yamas and Niyamas free you to take ownership of your life and direct it towards the fulfillment you seek. Gaining the skills to choose attitude, thought, and action, may be the grandest adventure you can take.

I wanted to return all my other books to the shelf and just practice these teachings.
