Asteya: non-stealing

The first day of my yoga training started with students shuffling in one by one, finding a spot to lay our yoga mats down and then decorating the surface of them with various literature and notepads. We slowly began introducing ourselves to our neighbours, learning about our previous educations, where we came from and the history of our yoga practice. After a short while the teachers silenced our chatter and they began reviewing the outline of the course, including expectations and guidelines. One subject they highlighted of ethical importance was a Yama known as Asteya. Asteya is translated from the Yoga Sutras as Non-Stealing and is one of the five Yamas (the do nots) within the Eight Limbs of Yoga. The Yamas and Niyamas are ways of “right living”, representing the commitment to not only ourselves, but towards others as well. The practice of Asteya outlines that one must not steal or have any intention to steal.

Yogic Breathing exercise for asthma

"For breath is life, so if you breathe well you will live long on earth."

– Sanskrit Proverb

Imagine  drawing in a deep breath, and then putting a small straw in your mouth and being forced to continue breathing only through the straw.  You would quickly feel the exhaustion of trying to get all your air through this narrow passageway.  You would breathe shallow breaths into the top of your lungs.  This is how an asthma attack can feel.

Great news: Yoga practice can help!

Through the years and conversations with many frequent practitioners, I've seen the impact of regular practice on all aspects of life experience.
