Welcome to this episode and the third of a five-part series on the Yamas. Yamas are the first limb of yoga in the Ashtanga yoga system. In the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Asteya is described as the emptiness that is caused by a deep loss, unfulfilled desire, and the resulting lack, insecurity, jealousy, or resentment that we focus on rather than looking inward ~ which always guides us to what we can and still need to do to support our well being; and to feel fulfilled, content, peaceful, and joyful. We don’t need to envy or take from others – whether in their time, their energy, or to seek attention and approval in order to feel good about ourselves.
