8 Limbs of Yoga

Often in teachings of yoga, the first four limbs of Yama, Niyam, Asanas and Pranayama are taught and practiced. The last four limbs of Pratyahara (control of senses), Dharana (steadiness of mind), Dhyan (meditation) and Samadhi (liberation from sufferings and pain) are ignored.

In this workshop, the eight limbs of Yoga will be introduced, and the last four limbs will be explored in some detail through talk, dialogue and practice of meditation.


Jivasu’s teachings emerged from his direct experience of Peak Intelligence Moments and State.

Trained as a physician, Jivasu, along with his wife, Karen, served marginalized communities in the Indian Himalayan foothills. Later, he studied integrative mind-body medicine at Harvard Medical School.

His work focuses on the bio-psychological architecture of what he calls the “natural self.” This led him to build a framework titled “Naturality,” which explores the scientific basis of energy, consciousness, complete health, and spiritual experiences.

He is the author of Naturality: A Natural Path of Awakening and Meditation.

Jivasu teaches integrative mind-body medicine in medical schools worldwide, as well as his training programs of Naturality, Kundalini Yoga, and Nada Yoga.
