Yoga Happiness Podcast Now Online!

In this podcast, Burg interviews local, and sometimes not local, professionals, experts, yoga studio owners, professors, and more, to demonstrate how yoga can be incorporated into everyday every day.

Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, and some other forms of yoga have origins in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. This short text is a compilation of centuries of philosophies, physical exercises, and mental practices said to have been gathered by a man named Patanjali. These sutras describe what have come to be known as the 8 Limbs of Yoga. In Sanskrit, that translates to Ashtanga. Ashta = eight. Anga = limbs. 

These 8 Limbs of Yoga outline a path for students of yoga starting with moral observances and avoidances, yamas and niyamas, such as non-violence, studying of texts, cleansing of body and mind, and more. We are taught to learn poses and breath, asana and pranayama, to physically prepare the body. After preparing the body and spirit, we are then taught to practice sensory withdrawal, pratyahara, to help draw the student inward. With pratyahara, one can then practice focus, dharana, more easily. With focus comes meditation, dhyana. The intention with the previous 7 stages is to gain oneness, samadhi. Oneness with a higher power, your higher power, energy, all of life, the entire universe, both seen and unseen.

This sounds hard to practice much less attain!

During the discussions on this podcast, I hope to show how yoga can be practice every day in every thing. Yoga is so much more than just a movement practice. I hope to present examples of that.

Support the podcast through Patreon. Listen on Patreon, on this website, on Soundcloud, or iTunes.

Enjoy!
