since i am more consistently

practicing yoga (or asanas, the physical aspect of yoga) and setting aside pockets of time to unplug, I am intrigued by the process and may delve a bit into it. I have read that

Yoga is the progressive settling of the mind into silence. When the mind is settled, we are established in our own essential state, which is unbounded consciousness. Our essential nature is usually overshadowed by the activity of the mind.

I agree with the unsettled mind vs. our true nature so wholeheartedly! So I skipped forward (of course =\) to the Eight Limbs of Yoga —
1. how to interact with others

2. self-discipline

3. yoga postures

4. breathing

5. turning inward

6. focused concentration

7. awareness | meditation

8. unity
