The Niyamas 2/8
Manage episode 349828101 series 3273773
Moving from the restraints of the Yamas (E50) to the Observances of the Niyamas (E51), the hosts steer the conversation to the second set of Yoga’s ethical offerings.
From discussions about cleanliness and digestion of the worlds around them to golden shadows and the presence of creation in all things, this conversation touches on the myriad experiences of being human.
These talks are not about providing answers, rather they are to spark curiosity and deeper study (if that’s what the spirit moves). This conversation moves with a cadence that captures the imagination of the Niyamas and invites listeners deepen self-study.
The degree of spontaneity, combined with research and the experience of being in this world for decades as students & educators, filters these concepts and allows the hosts to turn them around and offered them back.
The Five Niyamas are:
- Saucha - Purity, cleanliness
- Santosha - Contentment
- Tapas - Self-Discipline
- Svadhyaya - Self-Study
- Ishvarapranidhana - Surrender
