Although strictly speaking, only the last four limbs constitute meditation Pratyahara, Dhyana, Dharana, and Samādhi. The preceding steps are only to prepare the body and mind for meditation. A meditation starts by being separated from the mind and by being a witness. That is the only way of separating yourselves from anything.
