Practicing Pratyahara for Sensory Overload

When it seems impossible to escape this world of constant information consumption, pratyahara shows us that it is indeed within our power to find stillness.

Pratyahara means “withdrawal of the senses.” It is the fifth of the eight limbs of yoga, and one of the most misunderstood. Pratyahara is considered the bridge between the external and internal limbs of yoga. It teaches us how to move between these two worlds.

Through practicing pratyahara, one draws one’s senses inward, withdrawing from external information.
