The first of the limbs is Yama, or the Yamas. This translates roughly as ‘restraints’ and includes our attitudes toward our environment. The Yamas have 5 elements which I’ll cover in the future.
When discussing the Yamas here, I’ll often be referencing the work of Deborah Adele and the book ‘The Yamas & Niyamas: Exploring Yoga’s Ethical Practice’. I love this book and it is written in a way that’s easy to understand and gives journaling and exploration prompts we can work through together. www.DeborahAdele.com
