Significance of Astanga Yoga (Eight Limbs) in yoga culture
AUTHOR(S): Hanish Guretia
The practice of yoga is an art and science dedicated to created union between body, mind and spirit. Its objective is to assist the practitioner in using breathe and body to foster an awareness of ourselves as individualized beings intimately connected to the unified whole of creation. In short it is about making balance and creating equanimity so as to live in peace, good health and harmony with the greater whole. This art of right living was perfected and practiced in India thousands of years ago and the foundations of yoga philosophy were written down in the yoga sutra of Patanjali, approximately 200 AD.
