Maintaining a daily yoga sadhana, or practice, is a fundamental component for the ongoing development of yoga as a state of being, one in union with the higher Self. For some, that means a daily practice of yoga asana. For others, it might mean a daily pranayama or meditation practice or daily study of yoga scriptures. It may even mean a daily commitment to live by yogic principles, the yamas and niyamas-the ethical restraints and observances of behavior and action that include ahimsa (nonharming), satya (truthfulness), saucha (purity), and svadhyaya (self-study). As you progress in maturity as a student of yoga, your individual character and qualities will influence the yogic tools you choose to utilize on your path.
