Yoga Philosophy for Bipolar Disorder 101: Part 2, Satya

The basic “do’s” and “don’ts” of Yoga philosophy are called the ‘Yamas’ and ‘Niyamas.’ Sourced from the ancient Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, they illustrate universal truths of the human condition and practical, applicable solutions for a better way of life... for everyone. 

The ‘Yamas’, five “don’ts”, describe impulses in human nature that may lead to devastation if left uncontrolled. Last month I described the first Yama: ahimsa, or nonviolence.
