Meditation: One of the Eight Limbs of Yoga

Meditation is considered one of the "Eight Limbs of Yoga." The practice is a step toward "Samadhi" or enlightenment. More and more evidence has shown, too, that yoga meditation has practical benefits by improving our physical and psychological well-being. It can reduce blood pressure, relieve stress, and lessen pain. Meditating also brings our mind to a level of consciousness that promotes healing or what is known as the alpha state. In this state, emotional difficulties such as anxiety, depression and general discord can be reduced or eliminated.
