5 Nyamas:

  • Tapas – great effort
  • Saudhyaya – self study, introspection
  • Ishvara Pranidhana – faith in Divine

Asana
    Means seat in Sanskrit and are the different poses and postures in yoga. Depending on who you talk to, there are either 160,000 or 780,000 yoga poses. So you are never not in an Asan. Just remember to breath.

Pranayama
    Breath is so important in Yoga that it has a completely separate limb. In Kundalini Yoga,
there are 100s of Pranayams. All Kundalini classes include Pranayam.

Pratyhara
    The ability to be aware yet not react to our five senses, while in Dhayana (meditation).

Dharana
    Being able to focus on our bodies while in an Asan. This is also described as mindfulness.

Dhyana
    Yoga was originally just Dhyana (meditation). But yogis had a hard time sitting for hours in Dhayana, so the Asanas were developed to open the body so Yogi could sit for longer periods of time.

Samadhi
    The ultimate goal of Yoga is to achieve a union with the Divine mind. Yoga will unite our minds, body, spirits and emotions, allowing a Yogi more time to reconnect with Divine.
