Yoga dates back thousands of years and today is still considered the form of maintaining a healthy mind, body, sprit and a better quality of life. The following is just a brief look into what yoga is.
Yoga, in general, is a spiritual practice or discipline that helps the individual unify his/her body, mind and heart.
Yoga is a direct experience of the vast interrelatedness of all life and of all things. You feel at peace at the end of a yoga class because there is a natural realignment of your body, wich leads to a natural realignment of your perception of life and of who you are.
Through steady practice, you will manifest less self-importance, less material attachment, more capacity for joy, less judgmental-ness, and more tolerance towards others.
Yoga is about transformation; yoga is not a dogma, but a direct experience. Yoga will open your eyes to things you have not experienced before. It will take you beyond the munane survival level and into a whole new appreciation of life.
Yoga will change your life, your habits, your body, your health, your mind, your breathing patterns, your attitudes and your outlook. Yoga is about learning direct from your experience. You will develop wisdom of how your body works most efficiently. You will learn how your conscious and unconscious mind can either support or harm you, and then later, a deeper wisdom naturally gets revealed. The benefits for Yoga will come to those who have a regular practice.
Another way to look at Yoga is “to attain what was previously unattainable”. The practice of yoga enables us to look inside ourselves. The more we practice the more we are able to see our true nature, to be able to recognize ourselves better.
