Svadhyaya: Getting to Know Yourself Deeply Svadhyaya is one of the Niyamas and if you are interested in learning more, check Udaya.com for the rest of the classes I have dedicated to each of these habits that a healthy, happy, and liberated yogi cultivates. Svadhyaya is the practice of self-reflection. It is our way to get rid of our ego and move into a deeper self-awareness. Meditation, Pranayama, Chanting, Asana are all different avenues that may help you get closer to your True Self, but journaling, being in nature, or something seemingly non-yogic might even do the trick. When we look at ourselves honestly and openly, we can grow, heal, and ultimately lead a happier life and that is exactly what we’ll explore in this class.
