Yoga's Eightfold Path

If you want your Yoga practice to go beyond the Asanas then the Eightfold Path is where your search will lead you. Those Yoga postures are merely one aspect of this path, also known as the Eight Limbs of Yoga. Enumerated some two thousand years ago by Patanjali, these guidelines and practices can lead you to enlightenment. At the very least they will enhance the quality of your life, as these links will point out.

The Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing But the Truth
One of the Yamas, or abstinences, of Yoga is Satya, or non-lying. But what is the truth, really? This AllSpirit article explains it all - honest!
The Yoga of Non-Sex?
Brahmacharya, or chastity, is Yoga's most misunderstood yama. Must we forego sex completely to properly practice Brahmacharya? The short answer is no. As for the long answer... .
Aparigraha: The Yama of More
Another Yama contained within Yoga is Aparigraha, or non-greed. We're all far greedier than we think we are - this AllSpirit article offers proof.
Don't Worry, Be Santosha!
Santosha, or contentment, is one of the Niyamas, or observances on Patanjali's Eightfold Path. How can you be content in a world filled with pain? Find out!

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
Patanjali's Yoga Sutras are interpreted here, in 17 different languages! There's also a study group, a library, and a link to YSP Club Yahoo!
While the Eightfold path is most often illustrated as the limbs of a tree, this page shows it as a triangle. Although there's not a lot of information here, there's quite a lot to ponder!
This is an overview of the Yamas and Niyamas - they're guidelines for living, not unlike the Ten Commandments, only without the harsh implications.
