Dharana, Concentration. | No. 6 of the 8 Limbs of Yoga

The Previous Limb -> Pratyahara


Sanskrit Word: Dharana

English Translation: Concentration


Concentration is coming out of the ability to remove distractions. While your mind is all over the place, you're never able to concentrate. Once we're able to focus the mind, now we can use that focus on a task. You can use this concentration for a lot of different things, whether it's meditative practices which is the next limb of yoga or whether it's simply being able to focus on your job better focus on starting a business focus on your kids or your family. Finding this place of, "I can eliminate distractions at any time and totally focus my mind," can be super helpful for pretty much anything that you do.

The Next Limb -> Dhyana
