Pratyahara is probably the least discussed yet most important limb of the 8-limbed path. Pratyahara refers to withdrawal of the senses – it teaches yogis how to practice non-attachment to external objects and energies, taking us from the outside to the inside, so that the yogi can travel within and connect with the true Self.
Join Jamie as she explores how to practice Pratyahra as well as her simple tips for implementing this practice into your daily routine.
