Yoga is also a philosophical system, rooted in Buddhist and Hindu traditions, as well as consolidated into those and others - about exploring, strengthening and broadening one's relationships with self, others, and the divine or the universe and environment. It is done by allowing and devoting time and energy to consider and commit oneself to the pursuit of detachment, enlightenment (samadhi) or perhaps finds moksha (freedom) or nirvana.
The word Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit word 'yuj,' meaning the union of soul and individual consciousness with the spirit or universal consciousness. It is a five-thousand-year-old art of knowledge which helps you get in contact with potentials of the mind, body, and soul. Unlike what most people think, it is not only physical exercises where one twist, stretches, turns and breathes.
Yoga is a cure for the mind to become perfectly steady and peaceful. Our natural state of mind is peaceful and without any distractions, disturbances, difficulties, and distress. Yoga is the path to reach this natural state.
Yoga's approach is simple. If the mind is not controlled, then the body will also not be under control. If the mind is not healthy, then the body will not be healthy. Research has shown that every thought in mind affects the brain, nervous system and all other organs in the body. Negative thoughts and emotions disturb the balance of the nervous system and all other organs. This is the cause of all diseases of the body and mind, so control of the mind is essential for physical and mental health.
A balanced lifestyle is essential for the harmony of mind and body. This lifestyle is connected with nature and therefore making our life more nature-friendly is the positive way to health. Yoga is to tune the body and mind with nature and lifestyle in harmony with nature.BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
