The Three Pillars of Yoga

Tapas: Discipline

Svadhayaya:  Study of the self and of  Spiritual Texts

Ishvara Pranidhana:  Devotion and Surrender to the Divine

Greetings dear yoga students,

What a gift to be able to retreat from our worldly life and dive in to yoga’s spiritual teachings.  Over the next few weeks, I hope to be able to shed some light on each of the three pillars of yoga stated above.   These three pillars are part of yoga’s ethical practices known as Niyamas and are the second limb of the Eight Limb Path.  Niyamas are personal observances and give us the tools to lead a happy, joyful , well-balanced life.  These three observances in particular are highlighted in the Yoga Sutras as Kriya Yoga.  The Sanskrit word, Kriya, means  to take action;  so Kriya Yoga is the yoga of action.  By concentrating on these principles and discovering where you  may need to take action in your life (making a plan)  the ancient masters tell us we will  discover a more fulfilling, joyful life  and also create the fertile ground for our life’s purpose and deepest desires to become manifest.
