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.
Sixth Limb: Dharana is about fixing the mind to one specific point.
Seventh Limb: Dhyana is meditation with a purpose to interrupt the fluctuations of the normal mental activity such as sensory knowledge, memory, and imagination.
Eighth Limb: Samadhi is a state of consciousness where individual awareness dissolves into the great Whole. Although there are different stages of this consciousness, the ultimate result is the state of enlightenment.
While one realizes that Samadhi is not a permanent state and it takes dedication and effort to train the mind and go deep inside, one could have it as an ultimate goal.
