How do you breathe? Do you think about it? Do you ever pause to notice what happens when the breath comes in? And then what happens when it goes out? The 4th limb is arguably the “easiest” of the 8-limbed path - Pranayama - aka breathing. Typically we neglect the breath until it feels strained or absent. We all breathe automatically, it’s autonomic. We don’t have to think to breathe, but there are ways of breathing that are better than others for us physiologically.

Last week we talked briefly about how each Yama shows up in our daily life as it relates to infertility. (If you missed that blog post, go back and read it so that you have a solid understanding first.) We also mentioned that they help inform how we filter, decipher, and choose to respond based on our internal landscape. That’s the piece of the puzzle that we’ll look at today.

The Yamas are the first limb of the eightfold path and are often referred to as ‘the restraints’. At a high level, they’re how you interact with the world around you. On a deeper level, they help inform how you filter, decipher and choose to respond (not react) based on your internal landscape.

I remember the first time I was introduced to yoga (not just the physical practice we’re all too familiar with here in the West). I had just completed three rounds of timed intercourse with injections — but none of them took. I was devastated, and I was in the midst of trying to decide what to do next. So, I signed up for a yoga retreat in the mountains. It was a much-needed respite from the overwhelming grief, frustration, and anxiety I had been experiencing for quite some time.
