I just began exploring the yamas and niyamas, “the rare gems of wisdom that give direction to a well-lived and joyful life”, in more depth with a fellow yogi and kindred soul. We will post the musing from our journey on our respective blogs. The book, “The Yamas and Niyamas – Exploring Yoga’s Ethical Practice” by Deborah Adele is our guide. Her compassionate words and provocative questions bring the elegant sophistication of yoga’s ethical practice firmly into the relevance of our daily lives.
I begin my entries with the yama, “Asteya – non-stealing, which calls us to live with integrity and reciprocity”.
Both quotes I used are borrowed from Deborah’s lovely book.
