Unlike many spiritual traditions yoga seems to be gaining popularity in the West.
What we know as yoga was collated and defined by the Hindu mystic Patanjali around the third century CE. Though the word is now most often used to refer to the set of postures (asanas), these constitute only one of the eight sutras (aphorisms) or set of rules he first wrote down.
From a growing enjoyment and appreciation of yoga I’d like to learn more about the other seven “limbs” that offer guidance on how to lead an ethical life and integrate mind, body and spirit. That’ll hopefully come through posting about each of them.
