About the Book

Practicing Yoga means more than just posing. Yoga has eight limbs that begin with ethical principles called the Yamas, and practices of conduct called the Niyamas. This book takes a profound look at each Yama and Niyama, relative to our 21st century lifestyle, and offers the reader a meaningful understanding of how and why to practice the Yamas and Niyamas. When practiced in our daily life, the Yamas and Niyamas help us to calm our mind and lead us into a state of meditation where we meet our higher self, join with the source of infinite possibilities, and manifest our intentions.
