‘YOGA’ is a psychological, physiological and spiritual discipline that has been an integral part of Indian culture for centuries. It’s gaining popularity world over. Yoga stands for ‘integration’; integration of our entire being i.e. of body and mind through speech, thoughts and action. As a process of integration, it counteracts the influences that are likely to contribute to any sort of ‘disintegration’.
The science of Health and Healing with YOGA does not consist of mere exercise routine. It emphasizes on many subtle factors like yogic cleansing techniques, breathing techniques, principle of diet, relaxation and restoration, culturing mind with positive thinking and meditative techniques along with regular exercises in form of physical postures. With this a positive shift in personal attitudes and habits is achieved bringing about beneficial changes in the whole metabolic process, limiting not just to physical health but also generating a sense of happiness and fulfillment. It encourages personal growth and development by bringing mind and body into a mutual state of well-being, balance, ease and vibrant alertness.
With this integrated approach, Yoga thus is expected to yield better results than any other system. Other systems tends to give predominance to a single manifestation of disease, ignoring the other less manifested affiliated changes, which are as important as the overt ones.
My effort here is to share this treasured knowledge of Yoga with intent to take its benefit to one and all.
