JWM Health Trivia: Is Asana, Samadhi Or Pratyahara The 3rd Of The 8 Limbs Of Yoga?
Answer: Asana is the third limb of yoga. Asana means steady seat and the asanas are the yoga postures we practice to develop strength, flexibility, balance, focus, clarity and peace of mind. A regular asana practice keeps our bodies looking great and feeling healthy and most of all, helps prepare the body for mediation. Samadhi is the 8th limb and final limb of yoga. Samadhi occurs when the chatter of the mind becomes still and we can exist in a state of no thought at all. Some refer to Samadhi as a state of ecstasy or bliss. Pratyahara is the 5th limb of yoga. Pratyahara refer to the withdrawal of senses from the physical world.
