Yama and Niyama Cards
Free Yoga Resources
Yama and Niyama are the first two limbs of the 8 Limbs of Ashtanga Yoga, and serve as a foundation for practice, meditation, and self awareness in all aspects of life. Further limbs include the familiar practices of Asana – physical postures and Pranayama – breathwork, but in Ashtanga Yoga our practice is grounded first in the Yamas and Niyamas, before we ever set foot on the mat.
These cards can serve as a guide for you in your practice and your daily life. Print them, cut them out, and pick a card each day to inform, inspire, and ignite your practice.
