Updated: Oct 1, 2021

According to the great sage Patanjali, a definitive point of yoga is soul identification and awakening of the subconscious mind which comes through self-acknowledgment and self-sanitization.

Introduction to Elements of Yoga

Yoga has its underlying foundations around 5000 years BC as portrayed in Indian Vedic Philosophy and Tantras.

Patanjali, an extraordinary sage made this way into a Darshan (Philosophy) in his Book “Patanjali Yoga Sutra”. In which he has defined Yoga as an Eight Limbs or Eight-Fold way.

In Sanskrit “Ashta + Anga” is Ashtanga. “Ashta” signifies Eight and “Anga” is the body part so it implies Eight Limbs.
