WHAT IS YOGA?

Yoga is the science of living properly and hence it should be included in daily life. It works on all aspects of our life, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level.

Yoga is a means of balancing and harmonizing the body, mind and emotional status. This yoga or unity is attained through the practice of asana, pranayama, mudra, bandhan, or meditation.  So Yoga is also a way of living  the life’s ultimate purpose in itself.

Yoga first benefits the external body,  which is a practical and familiar starting place for most of  people.  When any  imbalance is experienced at this level, the organs, nerves  muscles,  and nerves  do not work in harmony, rather they act against each other.  Yoga also  works on mental and emotional levels after the external body.  As the result of  stress and interactions of routine life, many people suffer from many mental troubles.  Yoga may not provide relief immediately but it is a proven method to combat them.
