Eight Limbs of Yoga Practice

Yoga is a complete system designed to unite mind, body, and spirit. Exercise is only one aspect of the Yoga system. This category introduces you to aspects of Yoga beyond just the poses.

Aparigraha star
Aparigraha is the final yama, or restraint, in Patanjali's Eight Limbs of Yoga. As such, it's arguably the most difficult, drawing from the other four for skillfull execution.

Brahmacharya star
Often translated as “chastity”, brahmacharya involves much more than just our thinking about intimacy.

Hygge, Santosha, and Life star
Hygge is more than a fad for all things Scandinavian -- it's another way to think about Santosha, the second of the niyamas. This principle provides a powerful lens to view one's daily attitude, deepening daily experience.

Introduction to the Niyamas star
The niyamas are the inward attributes suggested by Patanjali as the foundation of the yogic path. Similar to the Ten Commandments in their structure, they can be best understood as ideals to start us moving towards union -- a path that ironically fluctuates between the inner and outer worlds.

Introduction to the Yamas star
Yoga is more than asana. Knowing yogic philosophy can help to integrate one's physical practice into other areas of one's life. The yamas are a good place to start.

No Title star

Pratyahara star
What does it mean to be “in the world, but not of it”? The fifth limb of yoga, pratyahara, invites us to find out!

The Eight Limbs of Yoga star
Yoga is more than just exercise. Here is an introduction to the other "limbs" of yogic philosophy and practice.

Yoga and Non-Stealing star
Yoga is more than just asana. The yamas are there to help us become better people. This article is the third in a series.

Yoga and Nonviolence star
The yamas are the first limb of the yogic path. They represent self-control in five important areas. The first, ahimsa, which means 'nonviolence' in Sanskrit, is one of the most challenging to understand.

Yoga and Truthfulness star
Satya, or truthfulness, does not mean bloviation; rather, it refers to speaking with consideration and kindness.
