Asanas

Asanas are yoga postures and the physical movements of yoga practice and, in combination with pranayama or breathing techniques constitute the style of yoga referred to as Hatha yoga. Traditionally asanas are positions, which make us fit and healthy in all the way. In the yoga sutra, Patanjali describes asana as a "firm, comfortable posture", referring specifically to the seated posture, most basic of all the asanas. Normally asanas will be held for an average of two or three minutes. Besides being held steadily they should also be held comfortably. No pain should be experienced while holding the posture or in the hours or days that follow. Hindu Shastras tell us of 84 lakhs asanas. A lakh being equal to 100,000, this brings the number of yoga postures to 8,400,000.

Pranayama

Pranayama is a Sanskrit word meaning "extension of the praa or breath" or "extension of the life force". The word is composed of two Sanskrit words: prana, life force, or noted particularly as the breath), and ayma, to extend or draw out. (Not "restrain, or control" as is often translated from yam instead of ayama). It is a yogic discipline with origins in ancient India. Pranayama is traditionally viewed as a practice involving a lot more than just breathing for relaxation. It is a term having a broad range of meanings and connotations Pranayama is the foundation for our body because it refreshes our breathing system and makes fit our respiratory system. It is a term having a broad range of meanings and connotations. The sage Patanjali, in yoga sutras, defines pranayama as regulation of incoming and outgoing breath coupled with retention.

Meditation

Despite all its popularity, today very few of us truly know what meditation is. Some regard meditation is the mental concentration on something; others consider that we meditate when we imagine something that gives us peace or satisfaction. All these methods are being with one goal to slow down and, eventually, completely stop the incessant activity of our minds. These exercises are not really meditation they are substitutes for meditation because it is normally very difficult to stop your mind altogether. In reality, meditation is a state of thoughtless awareness. The real meaning of meditation is transforming our mind. By engaging in a particular meditation practice you learn the patterns and habits of your mind, and the practice offers a means to cultivate new, more positive ways of being. With regular work and patience, these nourishing, focused states of mind can deepen into profoundly, peaceful and energized states of mind.

Mantra Chanting & Keertan

The word mantra has two parts; man, which is the root of the Sanskrit word for the mind; and tra, which is the root of the word instrument, means an instrument of the mind, a powerful sound or vibration that you can use to enter a deep state of meditation. A combination of certain codified sounds is a mantra. The correct chanting of mantras under the guidance of Siddha (Guru) brings about the manifestation of thoughts & desires, and even of devs & devis. It is originated from Ved, which was written by Lord Brahma. The teachings of the Vedas consist of various mantric chants or hymns cognized by different seers or rishis from the cosmic mind. The body gets an effect from mantras. It keeps away from all the diseases and negative energy.

Yoga Philosophy

The main philosophy of yoga is simple: mind, body and spirit are all one and cannot be clearly separated. Yet there is a multitude of philosophical ideas developed by looking into the deeper dimensions of the body, mind and spirit. Yoga is a set of spiritual practices but in itself is not an institutionalized religion, per se. Hinduism is related to yoga through a common recognition of the Vedas as an authoritative source, and both Buddhism and Jainism share many of the core values of the yoga tradition. But classical yoga is best understood as a system of spiritual practice, rather than a particular religion.

Ayurveda

Ayurveda or Ayurvedic medicine is a system of traditional Hindu medicine native to the Indian subcontinent. Contemporary practices derived from Ayurvedic traditions are a type of alternative medicine. Ayurveda is a discipline of the upaveda or "auxiliary knowledge" in Vedic tradition. The origins of Ayurveda are also found in the Atharvaveda, which contains 114 hymns and incantations described as magical cures for disease. Since then Ayurveda has stood for the wholesome physical, mental and spiritual growth of humanity around the world. Today, it's a unique, indispensable branch of medicine, a complete naturalistic system that depends on the diagnosis of your body's humours - vata, pitta and kapha - to achieve the right balance.

ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY OF YOGI PRACTICE

Yoga Anatomy is a study of the Subtle currents of energy that moves through the layers of three bodies. The Ancient yogi held the view that we actually have three bodies; Physical, Astral and Causal. Asana practice is a way of imposing order on the human system and use the poses in a proper alignment. We don't live to do Yoga but we do yoga in a proper way and proper sequencing so that we may live a healthy life. Basically, Yoga Anatomy comprises of breathing excercises, muscular and skeletal adjustment as well as correcting improper body alignment. Yoga Anatomy is a valuable resource that allows you to see each movement in an entirely new light. This approach will lead you logically through a wealth of musculoskeletal anatomy, bring the academic discourse to life, and permit you to understand the body's architecture and work with its safety.

Shatkarmas

Kriya most commonly refers to a "completed action", technique or practice within a yoga discipline meant to achieve a specific result. Another meaning of kriya is an outward physical manifestation of awakened Kundalini, such as a spontaneous body movement related to kundalini energy flow. Kriya Shakti is "a power of thought", said to be greatly studied by yogis. The Purity of body encourages purity of the mind. Yoga has developed six cleansing techniques or shat kriyas for purification of the physical body. Through these simple exercises, nature is assisted in the elimination of waste products and mucus. Many mental and physical ailments may be alleviated through the practice of kriyas.
