Yama and Niyama before Asana practise – Reiko, RYT200

Yoga is a popular workout. Many people see and do yoga as a pure physical exercise (Asana practice). Yoga theory like 8 limbs is not as commonly known as physical practice.  


It was my Yoga instructor friend who told me about Yama and Niyama for the first time. It was before this YTT course.


What was interesting to me was that Asana is the 3rd limb after Yama and Niyama.It is telling us to set a right mindset before you proceed to Asana. The idea of Yama and Niyama are a good reminder of how to live everyday. It guides me in some ways. Yoga is full of wisdom.
