Exploring the first limb of classical Yoga
The Yama Series is an ongoing series of articles on the BYS blog written by BYS Founder, Lily Cushman. The Yama Series explores the first step of Classical Yoga and it's relevance to practice and life. Each month, Lily will be posting in-depth articles on the five different Yamas, looking at both how they present in ancient texts, and how to work with them as practical tools for today. This first stage of yoga is often overlooked or misunderstood, however it can be a extremely helpful to understand the nature of our own suffering - not only the role we play in this suffering, but also a pathway to find freedom from it.
