The Yamas & Niyamas: Exploring Yoga's Ethical Practice

by Deborah Adele

Join Diane for a discussion of The Yamas and Niyamas: Exploring Yoga’s Ethical Practice, by Deborah Adele. The yamas and niyamas (translated from sanskrit as restraints and observances) are two  of the eight limbs of yoga, as outlined in the yoga sutras, and are foundational to all yogic thought.

This engaging, clearly-written book guides readers into not only a deeper understanding of the yamas and niyamas, but suggests how to live them, as well. Each chapter explores one of the yamas or niyamas, and ends with a self-study section, on which we will base our discussion.

This club meets monthly, and we will discuss a new chapter each month. You are welcome to join at any point. Chapter for May: Aparigraha: Nonpossessiveness.
