Course Description:  Eight Limbs of Yoga

In this blessed course, we explore the Eight Limbs of Yoga by Patanjali which is considered the “Father of Yoga”. Eight Limbs of Yoga is also known as Ashtanga, which means "Eight Limbs" often visualized like a tree. These eight steps act as guidelines on how to live a meaningful and purposeful life. They serve as a way for moral and ethical conduct and self-discipline to help you understand your inner and outer worlds. 


The Eight Limbs direct your attention inward toward one's health to help you to acknowledge the spiritual aspects of your nature with love and light. Yoga means union, to unite, and union with the light of the supreme being. 

The Eight Limbs of Yoga is a classical philosophy that offers a deeper foundation for all yoga practices including additional and different paths to achieve the unity of your union. The same foundation of Pranayama, Relaxation, Asanas, Lifestyle and Meditation (PRALM) applies through this scaffolded curriculum. The Eight Limbs of Yoga is experienced through these eight stages:

  1. यम | Yamas | Outer Attitudes
  2. नियम | Niyamas | Inner Attitudes
  3. आसन | Asanas | Postures
  4. प्राणायाम | Pranayama | Breathing
  5. प्रत्याहार | Pratyahara | Withdrawal
  6. धारणा  | Dharana | Concentration
  7. ध्यान  | Dhyana | Meditation
  8. समाधि | Samadhi | Enlightenment 

*Asanas experience recommended

Rajarajeshwari is an excellent teacher - really loved. Challenging programs have had an immediate positive impact on my practice.
By Jane O for 2022 SPRING: Stretch-In Yoga on 15 Jun, 2022
Rajarajeshwari Lotus is so amazing! She is Deaf and uses ASL. She opens my eyes. I learned a universally about 5 Petals of Life. I am looking forward to next class with her. No words to explain more about her. Far and higher than my expectation!

I loved the "Stretch-In Yoga" class! I stretched places I never knew existed. I also became the most flexible I have ever been! I always leave class feeling a natural high and calmness. I recommend this class for all ages!

I truly appreciate the experience I had with the Deafhood Yoga. I have been doing yoga for years but this session taught me a lot about breathing techniques. I love the ambience and vibes I receive through the session. Thank you.

Namaste, the Pranayama Basics class, was phenomenal, and it is always great to go back to basics to check in with oneself. Gratefully, MB
