Eight parts of Ashtanga yoga

Yama

Yama is the first step of character formation. It works on the personal development of the person.  Ashtanga yoga believes that without a strong character, patience and persistence, one cannot achieve anything in life. There are five qualities that should be developed to clear the stage of Yama. They are Ahimsa, Satya, Asteya, Brahmacharya, and Aparigraha.

Niyama

Niyama is the rule of conduct. With a rock solid foundation made by the observance of Yama, one is able to follow the rules of Niyam. The basic rules are Shauch, Santosh, Tapas, Swadhyaya, and Ishwar pranidhan.

Asana

Asana is the most popular and well-known part of Ashtanga yoga. It covers physical body postures. Asana is aimed to make the body healthy and develop stamina in a person. Prevention of diseases and delayed aging are added advantages of asanas.

Pranayam

Pranayam or the breathing exercises are another very popular form of Ashtanga yoga. Pranayam is aimed to achieve control over body and mind through controlled breathing.

Pratyahara

Pratyahara means withdrawal of the mind from the senses. This is a higher mental stage of spiritual development when the person is no longer attached or attracted by the material temptations.

Dharana

the person practically ready for Dharna only after a complete balance of mind is achieved through a thorough practice of the previous legs of Ashtanga yoga. Dharna can be explained as concentration or resolution to achieve a single objective. It is believed that the attraction of such resolution or focus is so strong that everything desired starts to flow towards the person who achieves Dharna. Such is the force required to reach the ultimate aim of human life.

Dhyaan

Dhyan is the stage of meditation. Meditation is the way to drift slowly towards a higher consciousness.

Samadhi

The word Samadhi emerges from the word “samadhan” which means a solution or an answer. It is the final stage where the being merges with the divine and finds an end to the infinite cycle of birth and death.
