Many, many people enjoy the benefits of Ashtanga Yoga the world over, maybe even you. Yet practicing Yoga is much more than just mastering some poses, or Asanas. Yoga, at its core, is an all-encompassing practice that seeps into every facet of your life - physically, mentally and spiritually. Yoga is not just about gaining peace of mind, it is also about going beyond your physical existence and understanding the true and deeper meaning of life. Fully embracing Yoga will help you discover the full range of benefits this ancient practice can offer, starting with understanding - and implementing - the eight limbs of Ashtanga Yoga, including Pratyahara. Pratyahara is the fifth leg of Ashtanga Yoga, and while arguably one of the most important, it is often overlooked. This limb works closely with the Asana limb, or the part of Ashtanga Yoga that focuses on the poses and Pranayama, otherwise known as the breath of Yoga. Pratyhara is the next limb, one that leads to self-realization and builds the blocks that become the life and soul of Yoga. This limb pulls the entire practice together and galvanizes Ashtanga Yoga to the beneficial heights we all know it can reach. This comprehensive guide takes a close look at this fifth limb, exploring its meaning and vital importance to the practice of Ashtanga Yoga. If you want to take your Yoga practice to the next level, this series is for you.

Yoga origin can be traced back to more than 5,000 years ago, but some researchers believe that yoga may be up to 10,000 years old. The word 'Yoga' first appeared in the oldest sacred texts, the Rig Veda, and is derived from the Sanskrit root "Yuj" which means to unite. According to the Yoga Scriptures, the practice of yoga leads an individual to a union of consciousness with that of universal consciousness. It eventually leads to a great harmony between the human mind and body, man and nature. I'm making a complete series on all 10 types of yoga. This is Ashtanga Yoga; others will also be available soon! The term 'Ashtanga' was used for the first time by an ancient Indian sage named Patanjali, who wrote The Yoga Sutras; an authoritative text on yoga. Ashtanga is in Sanskrit "Ashta + anga." "Ashta" means Eight and "Anga" is limbs so it means Eight Limb method, because Ashtanga Yoga is the practice of these eight limbs to experience the true goal of yoga. According to Patanjali, the direction of internal purification for the revelation of the Universal Self consists of the following eight spiritual practices: Yama [moral codes] Niyama [self-purification and study] Asana [posture] Pranayama [breath control] Pratyahara [sense control] Dharana [concentration] Dhyana [meditation] Samadhi [absorption into the universal]. Here in this guide, you'll discover a balanced Ashtanga Yoga practice that'll help you gain physical and mental benefits along with the spiritual benefits that the traditional Ashtanga Yoga holds.
