8 Limbs of Yoga: T A P A S

September 9, 2017 0 Comments

The third niyama in the #8limbsofyoga is #tapas which literally means to heat 🔥🔥🔥
Perhaps you have heard your yoga teacher speak of tapas is class. Perhaps you have heard the term when the body warms up and the atmosphere of the class becomes little fatigued or perhaps even self doubt begins to arise. Engaging our tapas will allow us to persevere when things get tough. Tapas means self discipline, perseverance and austerity, not only in a physical yoga practice, but in all aspect of our lives. Stoking the fire (agni) within will allow us to find the passion and motivation that will allow us persevere until the end. 🔥🔥🔥 A simple metaphor explains tapas to that of a Momma bird sitting on her eggs. The consistent heat generated will allow the baby birds to grow and eventually be “born” attaining spiritual enlightenment.
