The yamas and niyamas (ethical restraints and injunctions) are the first two steps of the Raja Yoga system and create the foundation of spiritual life. They consist of 10 principles that provide a moral compass for developing character. Their practice rids us of desires, cravings, and negative qualities and fills the heart with love, kindness, and goodness. Come learn how to systematically cultivate these virtues by using a spiritual diary, meditation, affirmations, introspection, and other yogic methods that can be applied in your daily life.
