Yoga – Maharshi Patanjali defines yoga as the control of the thought waves in the mind. Yoga is way of life. To live a life beyond the consciousness of body, mind and intellect is its ultimate aim.
The practice of yoga has been thought to date back to pre-vedic Indian traditions, possibly in the Indus valley civilisation around 3000 BCE. Yoga is mentioned in the Rigveda and also in Upanishads. It is a technique of integrating human personality at the physical, mental, moral and intellectual levels by means of Yogic Kriyas, Yogasanas, Pranayama and Yoganidra. The aim of yoga is to achieve a perfect balance between the individuals and cosmos. It is a way to better living. It ensures greater efficiency in work and a better control over mind and emotions. This is also a process of educating the total personality,including mental steadiness.
The beauty of yoga is that you don’t have to be a yogi or yogini to reap the benefits. Whether you are young or old, overweight or fit, yoga has the power to calm the mind and strengthen the body.Yoga Is For Everyone.
