8-Limbs of Yoga: Niyamas

Throughout the month of May, we discussed and learned more about the 5 yamas in the 8-limb Patanjali tradition of yoga in our class through conversation and practice on our mat. 

We will continue our journey through all 8-limbs and discuss the Niyamas throughout the month of June.  The Niyamas are practices you can cultivate within yourself.  You can read more about them: An Introduction to the 5 Niyamas


The Niyamas are:

  • Saucha (purification or cleanliness)

  • Santosha (contentment)

  • Tapas (discipline)

  • Svadhyaya (self study)

  • Isvara Pranidhana (devotion or surrendering to a higher power)
