The 8 Limbs of Ashtanga yoga...from the yoga sutras of Patanjali. These are promising disciplines practiced in the philosophical depths and transformations of yoga through intention, self discipline, devotion, and focus. This is my own interpretation.
The 8 Limbs:
Yamas and Niyamas are the do's and don'ts per say...the yamas layout how to react and project a positive flow to the external world while Niyamas are more self disciplines and practices that are beneficial to helping us obtain and maintain a positive direction.
Ahimsa-non harming to ourselves and others in thought or actions, non violence.
Satya-stay true to the self, earth, and life, be honest and do not lie.
Asteya-stay far from envy, be grateful of what you have, so not steal, and do not hone on others wealth, as well as detach from your desire to want what you do not have.
Bramacharya-self control, regulation, and restraint when needed, face of temptation.
Aparagraha-live moderately, reduce your wants and desires for material objects. Share wealth.
Saucha-keeping a clean environment internally and externally. being tidy and eating fresh.
Santosha-simply content. finding contentment in each moment for what its worth.
Tapas-self discipline and selfless service, compassion, empathy. volunteer and follow through.
Svadhyaya-study of ancient texts, and spiritual scripts, recitation of mantra, affirmation, and prayer.
Ishvara-pranidhana-surrendering to divinity in all things, surrendering to the spirit, and universal union.
