Health is wealth… Peace of mind is happiness ...Yoga shows the way
Yoga teaches us to cure what need to be endured and to endure what cannot be cured. Yoga is like music: the rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind and the harmony of the soul, create the symphony of life. Yoga is a mirror to look at ourselves from within. Perfection is an asana achieved when the effort to perform it becomes effortless and the infinite being within is reached– B K S Iyengar
The third limb of yoga is asana or posture. A steady and pleasant posture produces mental equilibrium and prevents fickleness of mind. Asanas are not merely gymnastic exercises; they are postures. Patanjali Maharshi defines that “Sthirasukham Asanam”. Any steady, comfortable posture is Asana. We teach basic asanas and their variations.
Pranayama is the science of breathe. In other words, it is the control of mind through breathing. Pranayama purifies the nadis. It is beneficial for lifestyle diseases like BP, Cholesterol, diabetes, asthma and mental diseases. Being established in asana and having control of the body pranayama should be practiced according to the instruction of the Guru.
A relaxed body and mind functions more efficiently. In yoga it is the nature’s way of recharging. It helps to store energy. It is necessary for good health and peace of mind. Without proper relaxation the body and mind become overworked and inefficient. Savasana is the physical, mental and spiritual relaxation.
Heavy food leads to Tamasic state and induces sleep only. A slight overloading in the stomach will upset meditation. The mind has direct connection with the gastric nerves of the stomach. You will feel great uneasiness in the Asana with a heavy stomach. So we encourage mitahara. Mitahara is moderation in food and drink.
