Yoga

Yoga is unique for everyone; nobody is the same

The word ‘Yoga’ means ‘to join’ or ‘to yoke’ or ‘to unite’. Bringing together Mind, Body and Spirit. This is achieved using the 8 limbs of Yoga.

The 8 limbs of Yoga were written in the Patanjalis Sutras or “the Yoga Sutras” compiled between 200 BCE and 500 BCE by the sage “Patanjali” in India. Patanjali synthesized and organized knowledge about yoga from much older traditions.

The 8 limbs of Yoga are:

  • Yama “abstinences”

  • Niyama “observances”

  • Asana “yoga postures”

  • Pranayama “breath control”
  • Pratyahara “withdrawal of the senses”
  • Dharana “concentration”
  • Dhyana “meditation”

  • Samadhi “absorption”

Yoga is over 5000 years old, with some text tracing back as far as 10,000 years ago. However, with the first yoga lessons being taught verbally we’ll never truly know how long yoga has been part of our makeup.
