Pratyahara is the 5th Limb in the 8 limbs of yoga. It is the penultimate action that we take from our side before becoming ready to unite with the divine. Pratyahara Yoga is mostly about withdrawal of the senses and submitting oneself to the divine. The word “pratya” is a prefix that roughly means to draw away from the one that is the source and “Ahara” means the source of nourishment. Hence Pratyahara is the practice of withdrawal of senses.
