The 8 limbs of Yoga: Philosophy for Beginners

Ashtanga – The eight limbed path

Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras state that to live a meaningful and purposeful life, one should follow ‘Ashtanga’. Ashta translates to eight and Anga translates to limbs in Sanskrit, so the word Ashtanga means the eight limbed path.

There are eight limbs to Ashtanga Philosophy, which focus on self-control, self-discipline and moral and ethical codes we should live by as Yogis.

They give advice on staying healthy, cleanliness of self and environment, meditation and physical asana practice.

The 8 limbs of Yoga: What are they?

  • Yamas – the five ethical and moral codes Yogi’s live by. Ahimsa – Non violence, Asteya – Non stealing, Aparigraha – Non greed, Satya – Truthfulness and Bramacharya – being good with ones energy.
  • Niyamas – Five self disciplines. Saucha – cleanliness, Santosha – Contentment, Tapas – Austerities and heat, Isvara pranidhana – surrenderin.g to a higher power, Svadhyaya – Study of the self and Yogic Scripts.
  • Asana – The physical postural practice of yoga. The most common perception of Yoga, where we focus on the physical and mental well-being.
  • PranayamaGentle breathwork and breathing exercises, designed to help pranic energy (life force energy) flow and nourish the body, as well as helping to calm and still the mind.
  • Pratyahara – Withdrawal of the senses through meditation practice.
  • Dharana – One point focus, removing all other distractions, focusing on inner awareness.
  • Dhyana – Contemplation and meditation. Quieting the mind, unbroken flow of meditative state for long periods of time.
  • Samadhi – Union with the divine and self, deep sense of peace and stillness.

Beginners Philosophy, where is best to start?

It’s best to start with the physical asana side of practice and focus on bringing the Yama’s into your practice. There are many Yama’s we can incorporate into our lives both on and off the mat.

Often, Yoga is practiced for fitness reasons and the essence of the practice is lost. Incorporating the eight limbed path on and off the mat helps us to benefit from the philosophical and meditative sides to the practice.

A good place to start with asana practice is learning Surya Namaskar – The Sun Salutations. They help us learn proper breathing techniques within the practice. It also helps us build strength and flexibility, as well as teaching the foundations of building a lasting practice.

For example, incorporating the Yamas – Ahimsa and Satya into practice.

Ahimsa – No harm in thought and action.

Ahimsa - the yogi dictionary

Ahimsa translates into Non-harm/Non-violence in Sanskrit. We can start to incorporate this into our practice both on and off the mat.
It becomes obvious to not harm in action, but how often do we do this in thought? Especially to ourselves? are we kind to ourselves on the mat? Do we practice with ease, or do we force ourselves?
could we modify our diet to practice Ahimsa? Perhaps, leaning to more vegetarian or plant based diets. Could we look after ourselves, or others, mentally and physically more?

All of these pointers will help us practice Ahimsa both on and off the mat.

Satya – Being Truthful

satya - being truthful

– What is Satya? –

Satya translates to truth in English.

When practicing Satya – Our thoughts and actions should be true, whilst not causing harm and being positive. How truthful are we daily? How many white lies do we tell? To ourselves, to others?
See an article I wrote on the subject of Satya here.

To Summarize…

We can all benefit from learning and practicing the eight-limbed path along side the more physical asana practice.

Do you incorporate philosophy and meditation into your practice? I’d love to hear from you! Comment or like below.

Mindfulness Meditation for Beginners

Students often ask for meditations to practice at home, so I thought I would make some articles about starting to incorporate a practice into daily life. Also, including a meditation to practice independently from the comfort of home.

There are many benefits of guided meditations, such as:

  • Reducing stress and anxiety.
  • Internalizing thoughts and emotions
  • Decluttering the mind of thoughts
  • Increasing mental wellbeing
  • Lowering blood pressure

    Just to name a few!

However it is important as we progress in practice to start learning meditation independently.

Mindfulness Meditation is a way of training the mind. It is a practice that teaches the mind to:

  • Let go of negativity
  • Slow down racing thoughts
  • Calm the mind
  • Invoke rest and relaxation within the body
  • Promote healing, both mentally and physically

How does Mindfulness relate to Yoga?

Yoga Chitta Vrtti Nirodha – Yoga is the stilling of the fluctuations of the mind

Patanjali – Yoga Sutras, Sutra 1.2.

As this sutra states, Yoga is the stilling of the fluctuations the mind. Learning to still the mind is the primary aim of yoga. Everything else is just a wonderful side effect of practicing this Sutra.

Mindfulness Meditation – both on and off the mat


Meditation and mindfulness, both on and on the mat play a vital role in attaining a still mind. It must be practiced daily and be at the forefront of our practice. If we just practice asana, without this element, we lose the essence of what Yoga truly is.

istockphoto

It is really important to marry both movement and postural (asana practice) with meditation techniques, to have a whole, well rounded practice.

A Mindful Meditation to practice at home

This simple meditation can be practiced anywhere, for as long as you wish.

Part one – gentle breathwork

Inhale from the base of the spine to the throat, slowing the breath to an extended count of four.
Pause, retain the breath for a count of four.
Exhale from the throat to the base of the spine for a count of four.
Pause, retain the breath for a count of four.
Repeat as many times as you wish.

Remember, you can return to a normal breath then practice again if you wish. This is your practice and your time.

Part two – Mindfulness Meditation

Become aware of the breath – what happens to the belly, chest and ribcage as we inhale? What happens as we exhale?
Feel the sensations associated with air entering and exiting the body.
Pay attention to the rise and fall of the belly.
Bring a focus to each breath.

After a while, return to a normal breath.
Just be still. Listen.
Become aware and listen to sounds around you, without putting to much emphasis on them.
If thoughts come, don’t put too much emphasis on them, just return to the awareness of the breath then let the breath return to normal.

Stay in the practice for at least 10 minutes.

Bereavement: Positive ways Yoga and Meditation can help.

Yoga Middlesbrough – How Yoga and Meditation can help with bereavement and grief….

Losing a loved one is never easy. My father recently passed away after a long fight with cancer. The emotions, shock and myriad of other emotions stirred up within us and family/friends are difficult to process. As well as having our own emotions to process and work through, we support others through this period of mourning too.

My much loved father and his adoring fans!


My Dad is, was and always will be very loved. He was a true family man and was a pillar of the local community, as well as a loved colleague by those he worked with. My brother, sister, mum and I were at his side when he passed.
I have never experienced heartbreak like it, seeing my family go through that same anguish is also heart-breaking.

I have found a lot of peace and solace in my practice, especially focusing on the breath and being still. It brings a lot of peace and clarity to the mind.

– Grief is natural –

Unfortunately, grief is something we all have to experience some time in life. Grief can be physical as well as emotional. Especially a really strong sense of tiredness and fatigue. This is how I have felt since my father passed.

Everyone experiences grief differently and there is no right or wrong way to process grief.

Symptoms of grief…

A few common symptoms people experience when processing a bereavement are:

  • Tiredness and fatigue
  • Longing and pining
  • Headaches
  • Appetite changes – loss or comfort eating
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Difficulty doing day-to-day things
  • Aches and pains
  • Lack of focus

Although this list does not describe everyone’s experience and some may experience other symptoms when grieving.

People can also worry that they are becoming mentally unwell, or that they are starting to overcome the grief. However, often ‘grief intrusion’ can occur, where someone or something triggers a memory, where they feel like they have returned back to the beginning stages of grief. This is normal, as grief is not a linear process.

Grief intrusion can happen when shopping, or when practicing. Basically at anytime of the day. It can catch us off-guard, but this is a part of the grieving process.

How Yoga and Meditation can help us process grief and bereavements.

Grief can become very overwhelming. A regular Yoga and Meditation practice can help us work through and explore feelings that arise when grieving. From gentle movement and stretching in Asana practice, a focus on the breath and practicing stillness and a sense of community within the Yoga and Meditation world, we can start to work through our grief.

– Choosing to look after ourselves –

By practicing even for 15 minutes a day, you can free up some of your physical and emotional energy. This helps the body and mind relax and recuperate. Giving ourselves time to process grief is really important and the time we get in Yoga and Meditation sessions really has a positive impact. Also, when we dedicate time to our practice, we naturally start to slow down and this starts to reflect off the mat too.

– Creating space in our lives –

As well as time, we need space. I found that I needed to give myself space daily to process things and reflect. When I had too much planned, or had too much work on, I felt overwhelmed very easily. One of the main signs of grief that isn’t talked about much is exhaustion of the body and mind. Its something that can take months to pass, so it is so important to give ourselves this time. Even if it is doing something we enjoy, like a gentle walk with music, or reading a book. This time is essential.

– Gentle exercise and movement is good for the body and soul –

– More resilience –

Research shows that asana (posture) and gentle breathwork can improve our mood and soothe our nervous system. It helps us operate in the parasympathetic nervous system (a state of relaxation) , rather than the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight mode) . When we practice this regularly, it helps us happier and calmer, and therefore more resilient during a bereavement. It also helps us look after our physical well-being.
Sometimes, the gym or strenuous exercise can seem daunting at this time, but gentle yoga can help us stay mobile, active and help us improve our flexibility, whilst soothing the mind.

– Meditation helps us process grief –

It can be difficult to accept that a person has gone, but they wouldn’t want us to remain sad and upset and continue to suffer. They would want us to continue living life to the fullest and remember good times, happy memories and celebrate their life.

There can be a period where it seems we cannot move on, or find a resolution. Meditation allows us to sit with our feeling and emotions and process them. It allows us to practice forgiveness, send loving kindness to ourselves and others and to find peace and clarity with the situation. it gives us space and time to process grief.

Some good meditations to try…

I am a massive fan of Burgs and his work. He does a series of free meditations on his YouTube channel.

This meditation is wonderful to do in bed or lying down, when feeling exhausted.

Cruse Bereavement are a wonderful charity to contact to seek support if you are having challenges processing grief.

https://www.cruse.org.uk/


I hope some of the advice here helps you to process grief and bereavement.

Do you have any advice for people? I’d love to hear from you.

Turmeric & Black Pepper – 8 amazing health benefits

A winning combination to combat inflammation in sore joints.

Recently, I have had a pain in the side of my left knee. I looked up supplements to help my knee to heal and came across turmeric and black pepper supplements. This article addresses the benefits of using turmeric for inflammation in joints, as well as a whole load of other benefits for the mind, body and soul.

What is turmeric?

Turmeric is an Indian spice, common in many Asian foods. It is an edible root from the Curcuma longa plant of the ginger family. It is often ground down and added to food to add flavour and spice.

It’s health benefits are widely known and is often taken as a supplement, to help reduce inflammation within the body.

What makes Turmeric anti-inflammatory?

– Curcumin –

Turmeric contains a bio-active compound known as curcumin. This can help relieve symptoms of inflammation within the body. It has been shown in many studies to be:

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-Bacterial
  • Anti-viral
  • Anti-Fungal

As well as being a powerful anti-oxidant. It’s no wonder it helps with a myriad of joint problems.

Why should Black Pepper be taken with Turmeric?

The active ingredient – piperine is an extract found in black pepper. When taken with curcumin, it helps boost absorption. This improves absorption rates. Curcumin on its own is difficult for the body to absorb, this is why it is important to take black pepper with turmeric.

– 8 health benefits of this wonder root –

  1. Boosts cognitive function in the brain
  2. Eases aches and pains due to its anti-inflammatory properties
  3. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric is also good for the heart, cardio-vascular and respiratory systems
  4. Anti-oxidants in turmeric means it is anti-ageing, helping to fight wrinkles and ageing
  5. Curcumin found in turmeric is known to fight inflammation markers within the body
  6. The liver is supported by turmeric, aiding detoxification of the body
  7. Turmeric can help to stabilise mood
  8. When combined with a healthy diet and exercise, turmeric is known to support weight loss

Why does this wonder root support a yogic diet?

As well as the benefits noted above, turmeric when taken with black pepper, helps to support the body when healing from yoga practice. It helps to ease inflammation in joints, muscles and promotes healing. It helps to stabilize mental and physical wellbeing, making it an amazing supplement to use in your practice.

Do you use turmeric in cooking? Do you take turmeric supplements?

I’d love to hear from you!

The importance of Meditation in Yoga – Guided Meditations for beginners to practice at home.

I often practice guided meditations at home. They are a wonderful way of practicing meditation in smaller sessions. Meditating in this way helps the mind stay on track. The mind focuses on the voice leading the meditation, known as a one-point focus. This really helps to focus and train the mind.

Yoga and the importance of Meditation

Yoga Chitta Vrtti Nirodha – Yoga is the stilling of the fluctuations of the mind

Patanjali – Yoga Sutras, Sutra 1.2.

As this sutra states, Yoga is the stilling of the mind. Everything we do from postural practice, to meditation and breathwork is to help fulfil this Sutra.

What are the benefits of guided meditation?

  1. Helps reduce stress and anxiety.
  2. Helps internalize thoughts and emotions
  3. Declutters the mind of thoughts
  4. Increases mental wellbeing
  5. Lowers blood pressure
  6. Invokes relaxation at a deep level
  7. Rewires neurons in the mind – changing the way we think and behave

Sometimes, it can be tricky to know where to begin with meditation. Here are some of my favorites to kickstart you on your meditation journey!

– Two of my favorite Youtube Meditations –

Beginners Spoken Guided Meditation – By Jason Stephenson.
This meditation takes you through a guided tour of the Chakra System. It is designed to help you feel balanced before you fall asleep.

Stillness with loving kindness Guided Meditation – By Burgs.
This meditation takes you through a Buddhist Loving Kindness Meditation.
Burgs is a Buddhist Meditation teacher, he is wonderful to listen to.

Do you use guided meditations in your practice? Is it something you wish to incorporate? I would love to hear from you!
