Tips from Yoga Philosophy to Get the Most Out of Your Practice
This month we’re diving into the traditional side of yoga with a look at some Yamas and Niyamas from the classical text the Yoga Sutras. The Yamas are known as restraints or behaviors to avoid and the Niyamas are ethical principles by which to live. These concepts can be applied to your life & your yoga practice on the mat is a great place to begin. Whether you’re newer to exploring the philosophical side of yoga or you’ve studied these concepts many times, they come from centuries old wisdom and will always remain time-tested sources of inspiration and guidance. Listen in as Dana explains the traditional and more modern viewpoint of these ideas along with tips on how to use them on the mat to get the most out of your practice. She covers Tapas (discipline), Satya (truthfulness), Svadhyaya (contentment), Ishvara Pranidhana (surrender), and Santosha (contentment).
