Aparigraha with David Swenson. Ashtanga Yoga Confluence 2013

Another great clip from the Ashtanga yoga confluence 2013. David Swenson shares his understanding of Aparigraha. I love his fun story telling approach!
Thank you to Amanda Manfredi

YAMA

Yama the first of the eight limbs described in the yoga text of Pattanjali
This limb recommends five ethical practices or restraints
Ahimsa: Applying non-violence/non harming to yourself and others.
Satya: Truth -living according to your own truth.
Asteya: Non stealing.
Brahmachharya: Abstinence ; containing sexual energy.
Aparigraha; Non coveting ; letting go of desires.
My take on these, is to practice to the best of my ability in the same way as I practice Asana ( Yoga poses).
