Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Here comes one of my petty comments - I have to contradict Wilson - it's not seven limbs, it't eight! They are called: Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi.

There are branches of Yoga that call themselves Asthanga Yoga - asthanga meaning eight, and they refer to the eight limbs of Patanjali.
