Today’s world is full of stress, tensions and pollution. In order to relax mind as well as body, Yoga is the perfect solution. The ultimate goal of yoga is, however, to help the individual to transcend the self and attain enlightenment. As the Bhagavad-Gita says, “A person is said to have achieved yoga, the union with the Self, when the perfectly disciplined mind gets freedom from all desires, and becomes absorbed in the Self alone.”

Man is a physical, mental and spiritual being; yoga helps promote a balanced development of all the three. Other forms of physical exercises, like aerobics, assure only physical well-being. They have little to do with the development of the spiritual or astral body.

Yogic exercises recharge the body with cosmic energy and facilitates:

  • Attainment of perfect equilibrium and harmony
  • Promotes self- healing.
  • Removes negative blocks from the mind and toxins from the body
  • Enhances personal power
  • Increases self-awareness
  • Helps in attention, focus and concentration, especially important for children
  • Reduction in stress  and tension in the physical body by activating the parasympathetic nervous system

 

Yoga is a One stop shop for all your worries, either physical or mental.
