In previous posts, we have explored the five Yamas: Ahimsa, Satya, Asteya, Brahmacharya, & Aparigraha, and we now call our energy and attention inward with the Niyamas.
The Niyamas represent our inner, personal ethical practices that support us in being connected, spiritual, soulful humans. One of my teachers, Susanna Barkataki, shared that the Yamas and Niyamas were integrated between 2000-5000 years ago, in communities, to amplify how to respect ourselves and each other.
♥️ Niyamas ♥️
The Trauma-Informed Yoga Psychology School offers students opportunities to deep dive into these teachings through reflective practices as the foundation of our yoga teacher trainings. It is such a joy to share some reflections with you, here!
