Yoga is a practice that’s most effective when all 8 limbs are combined, as the practice was intended in its origins. Often, “westernized” versions of yoga leave out many of these limbs only focusing on asana/postures.To experience your Yoga practice in a more profound way, it is beneficial to understand and practice all aspects.We will explore the limbs:
1. yamas ( 5 outward observances) 2. niyamas (5 inward observances) 3. asana 4. pranayama 5. pratahara 6. dharana 7. dayana 8. smadhi
