True yoga isn't just a workout. It is an ancient Indian philosophy espousing an eight-limbed approach to conscious living:
First Limb: Yama refers to ethical standards.
Second Limb: Niyama refers to self discipline and spiritual observances.
Third Limb: Asana is the postures we practice.
Fourth Limb: Pranayama is Breath Control
Fifth Limb: Pratyahara is about withdrawing ourselves from any external information so we can hear the sounds from within. During asana practice, we release physical tension which leads to quieting the mind. When body is free of tension and mind is calm, we are prepared for the next phases of yoga. Cultivate elements of pratyahara by leaving the external world behind, and being fully present on your mat. Be aware of your senses and observe your reactions to them.
Next week, I will have a short explanation of the sixth of the eight limbs.
Lunch Club Date
Thursday, Sept. 20 at Shorty's on Lawrenceville Hwy.
