The first two members of the eightfold yoga path sutras–the basic text for classical yoga-are discussed in this spiritual guide to the practice of yoga.The foundation of all yogic thought, they are considered as guidelines for yoga, lifestyle that individuals free to take responsibility for their lives, direct them towards the realization they seek, and acquire the skills necessary to choose attitude, thought and action.The first five guidelines are called the yamas–a Sanskrit word that means “restrictions”–and include non-violence, truth, not stealing, nonexcess, and nonpossessiveness.The last five are called niyamas, or celebrations-purity, contentment, self-discipline, self-study, and abandonment.A self-study section at the end of each chapter can also be used by instructors for group discussion.
