FAQ

 

Yoga is a very Ancient discipline. It is recognised as one of the most important and valuable heritages of India. The term ‘yoga’ is used in the literature both as an end as well as means. As an end Yoga signifies ‘integration of personality’ at the highest level. One of the meanings of Yoga derived from the root ‘yuj’ is Samadhi. It is a comprehensive term really means ‘integration’ and includes in it all other meanings. Samatva or harmony is another word which suggests the same meaning. This is the meaning of Yoga as an end.

-Yoga is simply a process of concentration which curbs the vacillations of the mind. The aim is to master the senses and not to be a slave of one's desires.

-Through Yoga perceptions of limitation dissolve and possibilities become endless.

-Desire for self-realisation is fulfilled.

ASANAS

  • These are special patterns of postures that stabilise the mind and the body through static stretchings.
  • Their aim is to establish proper rhythm in the neuromuscular tonic impulses and improve the general muscle tone
  • The two basic principles governing the performance of asanas are stability and comfort.
  • The nature of asanas is psycho-physical and not only physical.
  • These are practised by the body, the effect on the mind is also felt.
  • Every asana should be performed effortlessly and maintained for a comfortable time.
  • There should be no jerks and should not lead to undue fatigue.

CULTURAL ASANAS:

  • These are static stretchings, which bring about proper tone of muscles, flexibility of the spine and render back and spinal muscles stronger.
  • These stimulate proper working of the vital organs in the thoracic and abdominal cavities and regulates endocrine system.

RELAXING ASANAS:

  • These postures provides rest to the body and mind

MEDITATIVE ASANAS:

  • These postures maintain the body in a steady and comfortable condition.
  • Mainly these postures keep the head, neck and trunk erect.


PRANAYAMAS

  • By definite breathing exercises, we can control over the respiratory impulses which form one of the channels of the flow of autonomic nerve impulses.
  • There are different types of pranayamas which use different permutations and combinations of breathing techniques through one or two nostrils or sometimes inspiration through the mouth.
  • The purpose of Pranayama is to gain control over the autonomic nervous system and through it influence the mental function.
  • It is useful in higher yogic practices like meditation

ATTITUDE TRAINING PRACTICES

  • These are technically called Yamas and Niyamas.
  • These are self imposed restrictions to govern one’s behaviour to form a particular attitudinal pattern.
  • These form the basis of all the yogic practices.

MEDITATION


  • This is the practice involving control of the mental functions which starts from the initial withdrawal of the senses from external objects to the complete oblivion of the external environment. There are innumerable techniques of meditation.
  • It is a process of absorption in which the individual tries to turn his attention to dwell upon a single object, sound, concept or experience.
  • Meditation is a great tranquillizer.
