This is the third video of the Pratyahara practice series. You will be guided through a Pratyahara practice focusing on the touching sense. In this class, we will withdraw the sense of touch from external factors and surface of our skin, so as to turn it more inward. Eventually, we move closer to withdrawing the mind from the sense. Pratyahara, the fifth limb of Patanjali´s yoga system, bridges the gap between Pranayama and Dharana, as before the senses can be controlled, one must gain energetic control, whereas after sense withdrawal, one can work more intently with concentration and move closer to meditation.
