Yoga Lesson: Self-Mastery

The Sanskrit word Jaya translates into both “victory” and “self-mastery.” Self mastery is the ability to harness and control your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. The practice of yoga inherently creates both a path of self-mastery and a feeling of victory. The attainment of self-mastery can be used to produce right action (dharma) and desired personal changes at will. When a level of mastery has been accomplished through yoga there is a sense of victory over the obstacles and challenges that were overcome, and this feeling of victory further encourages us to attain mastery of our whole being.
