Yoga - Path to wellbeing

The need to do the right thing and moving towards our goal is yoga. Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word 'yug' meaning union. This union is what leads to creation. Creation of inner understanding -a realization of truth. How one interprets this union is one's will. It could mean union of :

  • Male and female leading to a new born
  • Physical body and thoughts leading to ideas or action
  • Left brain and right brain leading to expression of all kinds of arts
  • Simply a person and his true inner self leading to bliss.

Steps Of Yoga

Yoga comprises of various steps, beginning from yama and niyama (moral do's and don'ts). Then, comes the physical practice of asanas (postures), breath regulation (pranayama) and meditation. But a yoga aspirant may take years to follow and adhere to yama and niyama, so as a beginner one may straight away proceed to asanas and henceforth.

Energising with Yoga

Yoga practice if done in a systematic way, will always lead to a refreshed and energetic composure. Asanas remove fatigue and laziness, and give peace and rest.

If after a yoga session, one feels fatigued then there is something wrong in the practice or you were not doing yoga at all, but some other kind of aerobic or physical exercise. Yoga helps to remove rigidity and stiffness from the body. If after a practice, you feel lazy, then you are doing exercises which seem similar to yoga, but not yoga postures.
