Many yoga students look to Patanjali as the father of yoga - however Patanjali was a sage who compiled the Yoga Sutras and took from various ideas on Yoga that had existed before such as the Ashtanga or eight limbed path. From children of the instructors being rambunctious in the ashram, to problematic students — these yogis exemplified what I means to be influenced and in control of these practices we all set out to arrive here and obtain. It takes plenty of dedicated practice on concentration, contemplation, and meditation to move you toward the final sutra of Samadhi.

Jnana Yoga The practice of Jana yoga is easily understood within the two words 'Jana' and 'Yoga' which together mean 'Union through Wisdom.' the practice of Jana yoga is a very practical system for the Western mind which usually approaches things through the intellect and rational deduction.

The aim of these sutras is not to show how to do the asanas correctly or the best way to sit for a meditation. Although a Karma yogi may practice techniques such as the asanas, breathing practices, and meditations, the primary focus of their spiritual practice is service and actions with the focus of selflessness and humbleness.

A more modest system of yoga, hatha yoga can be practiced by most people and does not require a well established mind and body to begin the practice. Sadly, most of the limbs of The Yoga Sutras are ignored today. The objective of yoga is to achieve those moments of ecstasy when you lose consciousness of your physical identity.

Samadhi is the ultimate goal of The Yoga Sutras. This helps to lead an individual a greater depth within concentration, as well as the balancing and energizing of their mind and body. In the second step, Patanjali Yoga Sutra is the average experience of his actions as good effects it has with the health body and mind.

Basically these eight limbs encourage the serious student of yoga to: (1) be non-violent and truthful, (2) be pure of mind and body, (3) practice asanas, (4) practice pranayama (energy flow with breathing), (5) withdraw of the senses in order to still the mind, (6) practice concentration, (7) practice meditation, and (8) obtain unity with all things - the state of samadhi.
