Yama is yoga’s Social ethics, how we practice to get along with each other.
Michael Stone‘s way of looking at these . . .
Ahimsa: recognizing that I am not separate from all that is. Non-violence
Satya: listening, acting and speaking from the heart in each spontaneous circumstance. Truthfulness
Asteya: being satisfied with what I have; not taking what is not freely given. Non-stealing
Brahmacharya: encountering all creatures with respect and dignity; wise use of sexual energy. Continence
Aparigraha: using all the ingredients of my life without clinging. Non-possessiveness
How is your asana practice reflecting your yama? How is your yama out in the world reflecting your yoga?
