- Yoga is nearly a 5000 year old Indian body of knowledge. It is one of the six schools of Indian philosophy. The word Yoga means “unity” or “oneness”, derived from the Sanskrit word “yuj,” which means to join – in spiritual terms, it means the union or joining of the individual consciousness and the universal consciousness. In other words, the main purpose of Yoga is to unite ourselves with our highest nature.
- Yoga is all about harmonizing the body with the mind and breath through the means of various yogic techniques.These yogic techniques are the means and tools to realign and rebalance the vehicle (body) on a regular basis.
- Yogic practices impact our lives at the deepest levels – physiological, psychological and spiritual. You gradually become aware of the interconnectedness between these levels. Therefore, Yoga is meant not only for health and fitness. Its benefits are immense. However, these can be experienced only through a regular and consistent practice.
