First, truthfulness (satya), there is honesty in silence; especially if speaking could harm someone. Second, contentment (santosha), feeling satisfied with who you are, what you are, when you are, where you are and why you are – easily knowing who, what, when, where and why. Third, postures (asana) because, “Movement (kriya) is medicine for creating change in our physical, mental and emotional states.” - Carol Welch. For examples of kriya find “triceps and lunges” and other video footage at www.youtube.com/katieacampbell18b Fourth, pranayama literally translated as “life force” is breathing exercise. Bhastrika (energizing breathes) occur by quickly inhaling, expanding the abdominals, exhaling and squeezing the abs, feeling the energy flow. FifthpPratyahara (sensory withdrawal), of taste (food) before practicing yoga and throughout the day can enhance mind/body benefits. Sixth, dharana (concentration) allows us to be present in the moment. Seventh, dhyana (continued focus) improves performance. Eight, samadhi (bliss) may arise in many ways such as warm fuzziness, cool tingles, a deeper mind/body connection and/or enhanced physical, subtle, emotional, intellectual and spiritual states – feeling as One!
