Yoga Courses

In spite of all scientific advancement, even today man continues to suffer as before. This is due to the disharmony with the world outside and within himself. This disharmony within himself among the body, prana and mind is the cause of all suffering.

A state of harmony frees us from these sufferings. Yoga brings about this harmony in the physical, vital, mental, psychological and spiritual aspects of the human personality. Yoga is a system, a philosophy, a way of life that deals with the evolution and development of an individual.

Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root ‘yuj’ meaning to unite and thus taken to represent the highest state of union between individual consciousness and cosmic consciousness.

Yoga is a spiritual science of right living and it should be learnt and followed by every human being – young or old, people from all religions, all countries and all races.Followed rightly, it impacts every aspect of the person – physical (the vitality), mental, emotional, psychic and spiritual.

It enhances physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual strengths, and above all, leads you to Self Realisation itself Yoga is an art of righteous living. This art originated, was perfected and practiced in India thousands of years ago. Yoga finds reference in ‘Upanishads’ and ‘Puranas’ – the ancient Indian scripts – late Vedic and post- Vedic period. The “Yoga Sutra” which dates back to four thousand years ago, by Patanjali Maharishi – referred to as the “Father of Yoga” is a systemized form of this science.

He described the principles of the full eight fold yogic discipline. It is a technique for inner awakening which can become a lifestyle if you allow it to happen in you. Yoga is a primarily a process of self culture and personal transformation which leads to the improvement of the family and social environment.

The spiritual component of yoga is your understanding and realisation of the creative energy within you. Though yoga is a common word, it is a misunderstood subject. Many people around the world equate yoga with some form of physical exercise or physical culture. Merely bending the body cannot constitute Yoga.

Yoga is a set of practices we can do to integrate the qualities of the body, mind and emotions and realise the qualities of the spirit.
