Yoga

What is the true meaning of Yoga?
Did you know? Physical postures are not Yoga. They are called ‘asana’. In fact, when you go to what is commonly called ‘yoga class’, you are likely attending an asana class. You are learning how to do postures with your body. These postures are a tool of Yoga.

So then you might ask, what IS Yoga?

Classical Yoga is a system of self-realization that was codified by Patanjali sometime around 200 – 500 AD in a text called The Yoga Sutras.
The Yoga Sutras lay out eight limbs, or aspects, of practice which lead one to realize a state of Yoga. Asanas are just 1 of the 8 limbs that include:

  1. yama (moral restraints) – how we relate to others
  2. niyama (observances) – how we relate to ourselves
  3. āsana (posture) – how we relate to our body
  4. prāṇāyāma (breath extension) – how we relate to our breath or spirit
  5. pratyāhāra (sensory withdrawal) – how we relate to our sense organs
  6. dhāraṇā (concentration) – how we relate to our mind
  7. dhyāna (meditation) – moving beyond the mind
  8. samādhi (meditative absorption) – deep realization and inner union

In this context, Yoga becomes a final state which one experiences as a result of practice.
Then the Seer abides in Itself, resting in its own True Nature, which is called Self-Realization. Yoga Sutras 1.3
You can translate this Sutra as Yoga is the Mastery of the Mind
What is Self-Realization? It is also known as enlightenment. This is a place where the fluctuations of the mind have mostly stilled, and you no longer identify with any remaining fluctuations or thoughts.
However, Yoga is also the practice required to experience Yoga. That is, it is the things that one does to shift from identifying with our thoughts to witnessing our thoughts. This includes but is not limited to asana.
So where does this leave us then? What is Yoga?
It is both an end-point on the journey – Self-Realization – and the practices one uses to travel that path. It includes asana, but is not limited to asana.

In fact, it is entirely possible to practice asana without practicing Yoga at all.
One can be focused on doing the physical postures without using them as a tool to observe the fluctuations of the mind.
This is the entire point of Yoga – to work with the mind, recognizing that it is the greatest obstacle preventing us from knowing our true nature.
This is where the role of the teacher becomes vital in the practice of Yoga. Students are usually not able to see the fluctuations of their mind when they begin practicing.
when you choose to witness your mind while doing asana, over time you will spontaneously drop into a stable and tranquil state.
If you are a student who has been practicing asana and you would like to practice Yoga, seek out teachers who teach Yoga. Start to witness your mind the moment you step onto your yoga mat. Imagine that you are dropping down, or stepping back. Imagine that your thoughts are up on big movie screen fifty feet in front of you. Then stop giving those thoughts any more energy.
