What is Yoga?
The traditional definition of Yoga according to Patanjali’s Yogasutra is to ‘cease all the fluctuations of the mind’. It helps integrate the body mind and breath thus enabling us to be in harmony in all aspects with ourselves and with others. In short, it is an ancient and time tested art and science of healthy living.
Most current yoga styles and practices concentrate on just Asana (postures) and Pranayama (breathing techniques). Asanas and Pranayama Breath techniques are a great way to start the yoga practice and can fit in with the regular fitness schedule. Regardless of the style of practice, one chooses, it is important to dedicate time to this whether it is twice a week or thrice a week. The effects of yoga are seen through repetitive practice and its benefits are many and at all levels.
The practice of yoga is such that if you are regular, you can only see the positive impact increase as you journey with your practice. Whether it’s your thought patterns, emotional balance, physical fitness, social interactions it has far-reaching effects in all areas of your life starting from YOURSELF.
