Hello beautiful friends, and welcome back for the first niyama. This week we transition from covering the yamas, all the "restraints" to the niyamas, or the "observances." And, what a better way than to talk about Saucha, which means purity in Sanskrit.
Saucha can be broken down into two different areas of bringing purity into our lives. The first is what most might think of - to pure our bodies, thoughts, and words. Like many things, we must first start with cleansing ourselves in order to bring purity into our lives overall.
