Some socialists would consider voting as praxis. So that's a case where praxis is not direct action, as are any appeals to authority.

Generally direct action is all praxis. If you wanted to be finnicky about it, you could say it's not praxis if it isn't based in conversation with theory. So people who are constantly trying actions but not relfecting on it before trying new actions would technically not be doing praxis.

Praxis is just the word for practice that is in a permanent mutually-growing conversation with theory. It is a fancy word that doesn't have much more use than 'practice', but it is more precise.

Direct action is action taken without permission of authorities or appealing to authorities.

These can overlap but don't have to - for anarchists they will, since anarchists have a direct action ethic.
