Svadhyaya refers to sacred study or studying the sacred texts. Our yoga practice, the physical practice of asana and mantra, is more of an experiment, an exploration of who we are and what feels good in our bodies. Svadhyaya asks us to use sacred texts, like the Bhagavad Gita, to explore further, to go deeper, and examine our lives with the new understanding. Using that awareness, we are then able to begin to cultivate more peace and harmony in our life.
