    Hi Andrea,
    This is the most in-depth article I have ever read. I had no idea there were 8 limbs of yoga. It is clear you are very well informed on Hatha Yoga. And I must admit, I do my yoga at home, and as you say, I don’t understand yoga beyond the physical poses. I do meditate on occasion, but you have opened up a whole new realm of how to achieve a calm mind. Thank you. I will be returning to learn more.

    This was really great in helping me understand a blueprint of yoga. There were 2 limbs that really struck home with me, specifically the ones on Contentment and Self Study. As I get older I’m trying to find comfort in feeling content and appreciate what I’ve accomplished in life so far. And with Self Study, I do my best to constantly learn and improve myself both personally and professionally. This guide on the 8 limbs of yoga was really eye opening for me, thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience!

    Thank you for such a great beautifully written article on Eight Limbs of Yoga. I have learnt so much here although I am not into Yoga it is quite interesting to read about the history of it. I love meditation and I love how it relaxes and awakens me to what is real. It is such a great experience.

    Thank you for this exposition of the Eight Limbs of Yoga. I like that you have written it in a way that is easy to understand, and I’m sure it will be very helpful to someone like me who is relatively new to yoga.

    Personally, I am drawn to the emotional and spiritual aspects of yoga, and I find the physical practice to be a wonderful way to strengthen my body and focus my mind. I look forward to deepening my practice and exploring all of the limbs in more depth.

    Thank you for sharing!
    Namaste,
    Femi.
