Related to Yoga

The practice of Yoga includes a very holistic approach to health. It includes practices which focus on the well being of the body, mind and soul. Initially the benefits are very subtle but over a period of time when iy becomes a way of life, the benefits are very obvious. Read our blogs for more information.

Definitely it is not enough to keep you fit. Fitness depends as much on the state of mind as on the state of the body. Thus a well balanced diet, healthy lifestyle, an appropriate yoga routine (asana, pranayama, meditation) and using the knowledge given in the courses can help keep you fit. And doing all these things are very natural and effortless for all of us. That’s why in the yogasutras it is said, “Prayatna shaithilya anantha samapattibhyam.” Letting go of the effort and merging with the Divine presence are the two aspects of asana practice. To experience yoga, it is best to learn with a trained teacher and experience the totality of yoga.

When done under proper supervision of a trained yoga teacher, there are no side effects. If at all the effects are only positive.

Yoga is not a substitute for medicine. However it does help the body mind complex to cope with stresses.

For those interested in teaching yoga, or for those who would like to enrich their spiritual experience and bring more discipline in their practice. Please reach out to us for 200/300&500 hours certified yoga teacher training course.

The yogic diet is vegetarian. The food we eat affects not just our body, but our mind also. Intake of the right amount of food is important – not too little, or too much. Fresh, light, and balanced food are high in prana or energy. The yogic diet consists of fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, lentils, and a small quantity of milk and milk products.

In yoga- one practices the Asanas in a rhythmic manner that involves the body, mind and spirit. Yoga is like an appointment with the Self, which rejuvenates one’s entire system. It leaves you feeling relaxed and energized. In exercise, the focus is more of physical well being. After an ordinary exercise session, one feels exhausted. And is not so after a yoga session.

To attain a better posture and balance, the first thing to do is to let go of the effort in the mind. In the yogasutras, Patanjali gives two methods to deepen your sadhana. The first is Abhyasa, practice. The more you practice, the better you get at the postures. The key is to not force but gently improve the posture using the breath as a tool. You will notice that using the breath you are able to go deeper in the posture. The second is Vairagya – dispassion. The ability to drop the world is a big help in the practice. Mentally surrendering to the posture, not comparing or analysing too

Aim  for at least one hour every day in the beginning. If you do not have one hour every day, do your practices for whatever duration you can, however small it may be. Be regular and consistent in your practice. Example- 20 minutes of daily practice is better than two hours of occasional practice.
