Self Study- Niyama #4

Today we look at Niyama #4  Svadhyaya The word itself is made up of Sva, meaning own, self, or the human soul, and Adhyaya, meaning lesson, lecture, or reading, and can imply the practice of studying scriptures, as well as a practice of studying the Self. Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra says: "Study thy self, discover the divine" II.44 as we move forward in our asana and in our life it is important that we do self-study to become more successful.
