Pratyahara is the 5th limb of Patanjali’s eight steps toward self-realisation. It is the practice of disconnecting from your senses to fully reconnect with the inner and outer truth of the Universe. It's practice guides you to non-attachment (vairagya) to sensory distractions, which allows you to keep returning to the path of self-realisation and fulfillment of peace.

the art of slowness to heal the body and calm the mind
We live in a fast culture: fast food, fast money, fast cars, fast living. The faster we get, the more we look for the “easy” way out, the more short cuts that lead to dead ends we find, the more anxious and uncomfortable we become with ourselves. The more we use speed to define our lives, the farther away we get from creating a grounded sense of happiness, presence and peace, a place from which all aspects of our lives can grow. Yoga provides practices to experiment in slow living to explore how you can slow down to speed up.
