Niyama, or the Niyamas

The second of the limbs is Niyama, or the Niyamas. This translates roughly as ‘observances’ and includes our attitudes toward ourselves. The Niyamas also have 5 elements which I’ll be covering later.

When discussing the Niyamas 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. http://www.DeborahAdele.com
