The previous 6 stages are useful to set a good foundation for a sustainable meditation practice. Often times we try to meditate, but give up because it ends up being too difficult.The 3rd and 4th stages of Yoga are physical practices, Yoga Asanas (postures) and Pranayama (regulated breathing). Yoga asanas are what you might practice in a typical Yoga class. However, this is only one stage of Yoga and is generally not enough to set a foundation for meditation. In order to succeed in meditation we must try to incorporate all aspects of Yoga.The 8 stages:1. Yamas (ethical codes – social restraints)2. Niyamas (moral codes – self-disciplines)3. Asanas (postures)4. Pranayama (regulated breathing)5. Pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses)6. Dharana (concentration)7. Dhyana (meditation)8. Samadhi (liberation)
