Yoga’s Ethical Practice

Ahimsa ~ Non Violence “no harm”

“In Eastern thought, non- violence is so valued that it stands at the very core and foundation of all yoga philosophy and practice.”

“It is as if the Yogis are saying that if we don’t ground our lives and actions in nonviolence everything else we attempt will be precarious.”

“Our capacity to be nonviolent depends on our proactive practice of courage, balance, love of self and compassion for others.”

-The Yamas & Niyamas by Deborah Adele
