ASHTANGA: EIGHT LIMBS

Practised for thousands of years, yoga was passed down orally before the 4th century CE when Patanjali wrote the classical text, enumerating eight steps to joy:

"Now yoga is explained: yoga is the restraining of the mental impressions. Then, the seer abides in her true nature.

  • 1 - Ehtical observances
  • 2 - ethical abstentions
  • 3 - posture
  • 4 - control of vital-force
  • 5 - introspection
  • 6 - focus with effort
  • 7 - flowing focus and
  • 8 - absorption

are the limbs of yoga." ( Patanjali )

MINDFULNESS MEDITATION

Mindfulness is an approach to quietening the mind for achieving inner peace, with roots in Eastern spiritual philosophies such as Hinduism and Buddhism, although there are paralells with Jewish and Christian contemplative traditions


Mindfulness means paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, with qualities like compassion, curiosity and acceptance

Being mindful helps free you from dwelling on painful memories and fears about the future and live in the present in a full and enjoyable way

SECULAR MINDFULNESS

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction

Introduced in 1979 by Jon Kabat-Zinn from the University of Massachusetts this therapeutic approach is a very specific clinical discipline with roots in the ancient tradition of mindfulness


Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy

Inspired by MBSR Zindel Segal and Mark Williams developed MBCT with the aim of treating Major Depressive Disorder

MBSR and MBCT have stimulated much clinical research into the benefits of meditation and helped popularize mindfulness in the West in and beyond the clinic
