What is Yoga ?

Yoga is essentially a method of self development or self improvement of each individual's physical, mental, intellectual, emotional and spiritual capacities. Regular practice develops our body and subtle energy systems promoting higher awareness and perception.

In this sense yoga is a therapy and not just a workout. It is both preventive and curative. It may help us to simply keep fit or to surmount great problems, helping us bring more balance and harmony into our lives as well as guiding us towards our higher self. Above all it is a great pleasure to practice and everyone can and should practice according to their own individual capacities, not forcing the body into unnatural postures but practice with real enjoyment.

There are six main features of Hatha Yoga practise :

  • Asanas

    Or yoga postures are practiced to tone and relax the muscles, improve posture, massage the internal organs and circulate vital energy (prana or ki) in the body. Yoga also stimulates circulation of blood and lymph, calms the nerves, improves digestion and libido and works in fact on all body systems. Practising asanas also helps us develop concentration, breath and will power.

  • Pranayamas

    Are special breathing exercises that slow down breathing and help regulate the flow of energy in the body.

  • Relaxation

    Helps us to relax at will - both our physical body as well as our mind. These exercises can be done any time, especially after more strenuous exercises and when stress accumulates and we feel a need for it.

  • Meditation

    Helps us calm the mind so that we may develop a deeper dialogue with ourselves as well as serenity and mental composure.

  • Yogic nutrition

    Is based on eating fresh, wholesome and nutritious foods to strengthen and energise body and mind. Good digestion is fundamental to health and also leads to more balanced emotions, better concentration and improved meditation.

  • Yogic Philosophy & Psychology

    Helps us answer the fundamental questions of: Who we are; Where we come from and Where we are going. This is not religious dogma but a philosophy of life. Indian philosophy has universal appeal and one may readily find parallels in other cultures such as ancient Greece, Egypt or China.
