The first two limbs of the eight-fold path of yoga sutras—the basic text for classical yoga—are 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 living that 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 yamas—a 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 observances—purity, 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.

"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, awareness, and accountability. This book comes with online yoga videos to physically practice the principles: courtneyseiberling.com/yoga

Revealing the underlying essence of the Yamas and Niyamas. A profound, unconventional, and inspiring exposition on the spirit of the Yogic Dharma principles. You've probably heard or read about the yogic dharma principles of the Yamas and Niyamas before. But was it life-changing? Did it create any lasting impact on your mind? The truth of the matter is that nobody cares about the Yamas and Niyamas. Reading about them is often tedious, dense, and impractical. So, why is there another book on them? Because this book is remarkably different--it's not what you think it will be. No mindlessly parroting with the typical superficial observances, abstentions, codes of restraint, "dos," and "don'ts." No rhetoric concerning how practicing celibacy and faithfully reading archaically translated scriptures are the cornerstones of proper Yoga and spiritual practice. No attempt to instill outdated and dogmatic morals or ethnics into you. Here, we will go beyond an exposition on ethical or moral concepts, and even beyond typical yogic understandings, into a deeper and unified framework of understanding. When these first two limbs of the Yoga Sutras are presented in a distorted, westernized, or over-theorized manner, which is oftentimes embellished to fit today's "self-help chocolate" reading culture, they help very few genuine seekers advance in their spiritual journey of self-transcendence. But enough is enough. Prepare yourself for an insightful, pragmatic, and spiritually maturing exposition on Yogic Dharma principles--like you've never seen before. You'll experience a total recontextualization of the Yamas and Niyamas, and rather than applying them as the moral and ethical bedrock of Yoga practice, they will be used as tools for Self-Realization. Now that's what a real twist is, and hopefully, one that will unleash a powerful roar in your heart--the roar of Freedom!

Ethical Practices In Yoga

Anyone who has practiced Yoga has felt the joy and peace that can come from the discipline, yet as any passionate Yoga Instructor will tell you, the yoga is not complete without the spiritual and ethical disciplines to guide you. Anand Gupta brings the mind and the focus to this concept in this 4th volume in the expansive "School of Yoga" collection, based on the Ashtanga Yoga, also known as the Eight-Limbed or Raja Yoga, based on the Yogastura as codified by Patanjali around 400 C.E. Unveiling the first two limbs known as the Yamas, or what not to do, and the Niyamas, or what is to be done, in the Yogasutra, Anand Gupta explains how the Yogi must incorporate these deep disciplines in their daily lives. The five Yamas listed and defined in this book offer a set of activities that must be avoided by the Yogi while the Niyamas are a set of observances that promote self-discipline and improve will power. Together these help in bringing the Yogi closer to the goal of Yoga: unity of the body and mind.

After the death of a loved one, Julie felt compelled to dive into a deep personal examination and exploration of the Yamas and Niyamas, the moral and ethical tenets of ancient yoga. The result of that study is an easy-to-read book (no previous yoga experience necessary) that is part philosophy, part memoir. "[Julie Hillman] does [her yoga] lineage proud by presenting both its teachings and her path to the teachings which allow her to pass it all on to others in this present moment with 2020 vision." Julie gives the Yamas and Niyamas a modern twist while remaining true to the ancient teaching."This book is inspiring and opens one's mind up to the many possibilities and truth that lies inside" (Robyn Simas). Becoming Parvati will be a spiritual resource, one you will refer to again and again on your own spiritual journey.

Glimpses Of Raja Yoga

In Glimpses of Raja Yoga, Vimala Thakar introduces the basic concepts of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras by focusing on a different sutra, or aphorism, in each of the twelve chapters. In her opening chapter, she presents the historical and cultural background of Patanjali’s Raja Yoga. Chapter 2 contains an eloquent invocation of the dimension of Silence—the meditative state that one enters with the stilling of the mind. Chapters 3–6 examine the ethical principles and observances (the yamas and niyamas) that form the foundation of a healthy spiritual practice. Here Vimala discusses the importance of ahimsa (non-violence) and satya (truthfulness), and offers a radical interpretation of brahmacarya based on her understanding of Sanskrit. Chapter 7 concerns the kleshas or causes of suffering such as avidya (ignorance) and asmita (egotism). Chapter 8 discriminates between dharana (meditation with deliberate focus) and dhyana (effortless meditation), and reflects Vimala’s own experience. Chapter 9 describes the relation of prakriti (matter) and purusha (spirit) according to Patanjali. Chapters 10–12 describe the ultimate goal of the yogic journey—the absolute freedom of samadhi.

The Way Of Love

Author : Subhash Anand
ISBN : UVA:X030119635
Genre : Religion
File Size : 54.56 MB
Format : PDF
Download : 938
Read : 431

Description: In this study, the author discusses the sadhana presented by the Bhagavata-purana and this is essentially the bhakti-marga, the way of love. After some preliminary remarks about the puranas in general and the Bhagavata-purana in particular, the author attempts to describe the sadhaka (man as a pilgrim), the sadhya (god as the supreme lover), and the sadhana (bhakti as the universal and the most effective way to attain god). The book then draws the attention of the reader to the possible obstacles he may encounter in his spiritual journey, while at the same time assuring him that the guidance of a good guide, the fellowship of other devotees and some other aids will assist him in his pilgrimage. Love is not only the way, but also the goal (Prayojana), and hence the study concludes by presenting moksa as sa-prema-bhakti-yoga, that is a union of loving devotion, between god and man, Bhagavan and his bhakta.
