On Pratyahara Yoga and Savasana

March 14, 2011

Pratyahara is the fifth limb of Patanjali’s classical yoga system.

It translates as “the conscious withdrawal of energy from the senses,” and can offer a haven of silence in a world of information overload.

In contrast to the more familiar practices of asana and pranayama, however, pratyahara remains elusive to most of us. It can also be confused with “dropping out” or escapism.

The goal of pratyahara is not to tune everything out, but rather to find the source of calm and stillness that resides within. We recommend focusing on Savasana (Corpse Pose) in order to begin to understand pratyahara.
