Satya - truthfulness, or true nature, true essence. We learn these Yama's are so much more than the first image we evoke in our minds eye when we hear the translation. Truthfulness is more than just not lying. We can see it as staying true; to your heart. Recognizing at your essence you are whole and complete just as you are, that we need not seek outside validation to experience the beauty of ourselves; the beauty that surrounds us in our everyday lives. On the mat, Satya is about honouring limitations, respecting the boundary of sensation.


What does Satya mean to you? How is it applied in your practice on & off the mat?

Welcome to the group! Currently, we are discussing our practice of the Yamas & Niyamas on and off the mat. We have posted a recommended book but feel free to study from your own resources. This is a brave space to share your experiences and observations. Let's connect:)

I read Deborah’s book years ago, it’s a good one! When I ponder this Yama, there’s the obvious of ‘do no harm’ to others, the nature world, the environment …..thought, word and deed….but what comes to mind for me as well, is how this principle also shows up in relating to ‘self’. Negative self talk, self criticism, resentment, anger, disappointment and the ‘personal violence’ in them. And action too. I remember when I first learned about this principle (in MJ’s class, no doubt) it was an eye opener for me in how I was practicing because my actions on the mat - pushing past edge, trying to force a pose not respecting my own limitations- that ’younger self yogi’ was not practicing ahimsa!! I started to pay better attention to bringing more ahimsa onto my own mat. And we know that all things practiced on the mat lead to practice…

This week we discuss the Yama of Ahimsa (non harming, non injury, non violence)

We practice putting Ahimsa into thought, word & action. How often are your thoughts critical or judgemental? Our thoughts become our words and actions.

I know, for myself when my thoughts are not in alignment with Ahimsa, I am harsh/impatient with those I love the most & this creates a ripple effect discontent.

Ahisma does not mean I expect myself to be "perfect" always, but rather understanding that life is a spectrum of experiences and emotions and I am immersed in this life. Ahimsa is to be gentle with myself always.

Casual "book club" is a go!

We will discuss the Yamas and Niyamas. Read any prefered book, and each week we will share how the Yama/niyama has supported us, or impacted how we live our lives on and off the mat. The audible book app Hoopla has been strongly recommended with Deborah Adele's book on the above topic.

Chat soon!

One of our Kula friends suggested a casual book club. I love this idea!! Send some words of excitement so we can gauge interest:)

It is a book about the Niyamas and Yamas.


Her words

"I would love to start a Book Club studying The Yamas and the Nyamas: Exploring Yoga's Ethical Practice by Deborah Adele."
