Learn Yogi Stuff: The 8 limbs of Yoga

 

 
Today I have set myself down to learn the Eight Limbs of Yoga, like a good yogi-teacher-in-training.
In The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (which is kind of the first formalised book on yoga philosophy), Patanjali describes the path of yoga as being “eight limbed”. The actual sanskrit word he uses is “ASHTANGA” which breaks down to “ashta = […]
