The Yamas Niyamas


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

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.

The Yogic Dharma


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

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 No attempt to instill outdated and dogmatic morals or ethnics into you.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!

The Hatha Yoga Pradipika


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

This is a large print edition of The Hatha Yoga Pradipika offering clear easy to read version. This edition offers text printed in fot size 14. Hatha Yoga Pradipika is a classical text describing Hatha Yoga. It is the oldest surviving text on Hatha Yoga.

The Eight Limbs Of Yoga


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

A clear, concise guidebook to the essentials of yogic thought and practice Many people think yoga simply means postures and breathing. Not true. The intention of this short guide is practical and straightforward: to say what yoga really is and to apply its principles to everyday life. It leads us through the eight-limbed system, a coherent framework that has been handed down and elaborated upon for thousands of years and consists of five "outer limbs," which pertain to our experience of the social world and the operation of our senses, and three "inner limbs," which focus on the mind. Stuart Ray Sarbacker and Kevin Kimple present the eight-limbed system as something that can be turned to again and again to deepen and expand understanding and practice. As an introduction and overview to the essence of yoga, The Eight Limbs of Yoga is unparalleled for clarity, usefulness, and concision.

Yoga S Yamas And Niyamas


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

"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
