Yama & Niyama Clothes Pegs

The yamas and niyamas of yoga are guidelines for how to be content and I quite like choosing one to focus on or having them around as little reminders of how to be and they do seem to help!
So I made these clothes pegs for that 🙂


You will need:

  • 5 clothes pegs
  • pens or pencils

Write one yama and one niyama (or other inspiring words) on each side of each peg, with decoration if you like (yamas and niyamas below).


  • Ahimsa (non-harming, peacefulness)
  • Satya (honesty)
  • Asteya (non-stealing, giving)
  • Brahmacarya (consciously directing your energy)
  • Aparigraha (letting go, sharing)


  • Sauca (purity)
  • Santosa (contentment)
  • Tapas (discipline)
  • Svadhyaya (self-study)
  • Ishvara Pranidhana (devotion to God)

As well as pictures and holding things together, they are quite good for holding up notes when teaching yoga online 💖
