What is Dharma? Human beings want to expand, and secondly, they want to become one with the Cosmic Body. Thirdly they want to do something noble and the fourth thing is that they want peace, Supreme peace, undisturbed peace. These are the four special qualifications of human beings. Collectively you may say, it is the human mode.
Yoga is the path of progress, the path of development for each and every human being. Nobody can keep himself herself away or aloof from that track of Yoga. Yoga is Dharma. So in individual life we should practice Yoga, and in collective life we should encourage others to practice Yoga. It is the solution of all human ailments in the physicial stratum, in the psychic stratum and also in spiritual stratum.

Yama and Niyama are the ethical precepts set forth in Patanjali's Yoga Sutras as the first and second of the eight limbs of yoga. They are the foundation of yoga practice, without which, no spiritual progress along the path of yoga can be made. Many people come to yoga initially as a physical exercise and only later begin to understand the profound spiritual effect it has on their lives. But to establish these spiritual effects firmly upon our mindstream, to embed them within our consciousness, they must be grounded on the bedrock of ethical behavior. Our practice begins with Yama and Niyama, and extends into asana and the other limbs of yoga. ... See MoreSee Less

What is Yoga?

Yoga – The Ancient Science of Total Health

Bhujaungasana - Cobra PoseThe Wisdom of Yoga

Yoga is an ancient system of techniques for all-round health and well being of the individual. These techniques have been tested and refined over thousands of years, and are available to anyone willing to learn them. The scientific and easy-to-learn exercises provide a practical, natural and holistic way to achieve health and vitality. Yoga is not a religion. Anyone from any faith can practice the techniques.


Stress ReliefPadmasana - Lotus Pose

Today’s life is full of stress. Although we have reached a high level of increasing tension and fatigue. Despite our modern achievements, many people feel restless and unhappy, because life is not in balance any more. Environmental stress and bad personal habits also add to this strain. All this results in various physical and mental diseases such as depression, high blood pressure, heart disease and even cancer.

Finding a Balance

Yoga offers a simple and practical solution to these problems and helps us to find a balance in our life. It enables us to deal effectively with the many challenges we constantly face, and to achieve the inner strength, success and happiness we all desire.

Asanas and MoreHalasana - Plough Pose

People tend to think of Yoga as complicated stretching exercises. Yet the most helpful of these exercises, also called asanas, are not very difficult to practice. It only takes a little time to develop the flexibility of our joints. More importantly, asanas also work on a deeper level: by subtle pressure on the glands of our body, they balance our hormones. Hormones play a key role in our overall health and well-being. Almost all physical and mental diseases can be linked to an imbalance in the glands of our body.

Meditation

There is more to Yoga than asanas. Meditation is a systematic and scientific way to gently focus the mind. The body’s response to meditation is just the opposite of its reaction to stress. Meditation calms the central nervous system as well as our breathing, heart rate and blood pressure. The regular practice of meditation broadens the scope of your mind, helping you to develop a keener sense of intuition and a deeper understanding of yourself and the world around you. People who meditate typically experience a state of deep inner peace and harmony, which in turn leads to more intense and lasting feelings of happiness and fulfilment.
