I got a request for some Pratyahara practice video and here is the first one. Pratyahara is the fifth limb in Patanjali´s yoga system and it is generally known as withdrawal of the senses. The justification for this limb is obvious due to the fact that it follows Pranayama (energy guidance) and precedes Dharana (concentration). Pratyahara bridges these limbs, as before the senses can be controlled, one must gain bodily control and energetic regulation. After sense withdrawal, one can work more intently with concentration, thus moving closer and closer to complete meditation. In this seance, You will be guided through a Pratyahara practice focusing on the hearing sense, so be ready to work with sounds.
