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).
