“Yoga is seeing life
the way it is.”
– The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
Thousands of years ago, a process for stress management and mental-emotional health was created to help us face our internal battles and external challenges.
This process (commonly known as “The 8 Limbs of Yoga”) guides us to learn how to still the ripples of the mind and quiet the mental noise that prevents us from fully experiencing life as it truly is.
Living and embodying the 8 Limbs wholeheartedly can help us:
- Awaken deeper understanding, insight, & intuition.
- Cultivate the quality of calm balance regardless of outer circumstances.
- Grow inner strength and resolve.

About Our Founder & Managing Editor:
Osmara Aryal, MBA founded CalmWithYoga.com as a result of her own personal journey battling an inflammatory bowel condition and chronic brain fog, fatigue, anxiety, and insomnia.
The idea of the site came about after realizing she had compiled thousands of hours of research and notes unifying effective tools and principles in yogic philosophy, breathwork, mindfulness, and meditation with a focus on increasing inner calm, mental focus, vital energy, and deep rest.
She’s a Certified Functional Nutrition Practitioner, and a Certified Yoga & Meditation Teacher specializing in Breathwork (Pranayama), Mantra Meditation, Yoga Nidra, and Yin Yoga.
Her work has been featured multiple times on CNN, the Miami Herald, Tiny Buddha, Elephant Journal, The Mighty, Purpose Fairy, Positively Positive, and Finer Minds.
When she’s not exploring corners of the world with her husband Ash, or when her eyes aren’t glued to the computer researching and writing, you’ll find her on the mat, concocting gut-healing dishes in her kitchen, or cuddling with fur-babies Yodha and Molly.
She lives in Los Angeles, CA.
