Importance Of Yogasan

a) What is yoga?

Yoga is a system of techniques that reflects real and proven scientific concepts. Many things Western scientists understand about the body have actually been known by yoga practitioners for centuries. Yoga sees the body from a different perspective than traditional Western medicine, but the basic principles are the same. What we Westerners call nerve plexus, yoga calls chakras. 
What we Westerners call spinal alignment, yoga accomplishes through various poses or exercises designed to do what many of us pay chiropractors to do. The human body is in a constant state of flux, continually adjusting internally to the influence of a changing external environment. 
Western medicine calls this process homeostasis. Yoga’s five sheaths of existence, in essence, the body, the breath, the emotions, the intellect, and happiness reflect the same need for balance between internal and external forces. The terminology may be different, but the concepts are universal.



Yoga is a fun activity that can produce powerful results. Yoga will wake up your body, sharpen your mind, and clarify your spirit. Yoga doesn’t hurt, is only as difficult as you make it, and allows you to proceed at an individualized pace. Yoga can be a tiny part of your life; or you can incorporate its theories, rituals, postures, diet, and philosophy into every aspect of your life. You control how deeply yoga touches you. But if you begin a steady practice, be assured that yoga will transform the way you look, feel, move, breathe, and interact with friends, family, and co-workers.

b) Importance of yoga

Yoga is a fantastic remedy for overcoming problems that modern man is facing in his daily life. Yoga helps to enhance the autoimmune system, to increase the vital energy in the body system. This will help to increase the vital energy in the body and help to develop the thought of mental efficiency. This will help to minimize the mental attitude of the human.
Yoga is a precious pragmatic science evolved over thousands of years which are dealing with physical, moral, mental, and spiritual well being for man. The term Yoga is derived from Sanskrit meaning to bind, join, attach, and yoke. It increases concentration and attention.
The system of Yoga teaches the individual soul (Jivatma) which can be united with
communion with the Cosmos (Paramatma) and it will help to attain Moksha. Yogi will find grace within himself through his practice and he finds fulfillment in his life. Yoga will help to reach wisdom in work or skillful living and this will bring harmony in our life.
The practice of Yoga is not a course or exam which can be completed within a stipulated
period of time. But it can be based on the dedication towards their practice. One cannot
expect favorable results within an exact period of time. Yoga is based on the relationship
between Guru and Shishya and really this is special when compared to other relationships
like husband and wife or friends. A Guru should be free from world affairs and he should
be a role model for Shishya. But Shishya should have higher realization and development
and he is having more responsibilities and he should have more love and devotion
towards his Guru. 

c) How to practice yoga?
  • Start with Acceptance. Yoga is more than just a form of exercise. 
  • Release Expectations. The moment you begin to practice gratitude, you will feel expectations start to slip away.
  • Understand the Core of Yoga.
  • Notice Your Breathing. 
  • Get Comfortable in Stillness. 
  • Learn Basic Yoga Poses.

d) Is yoga from a religion?

Yoga stems from the Vedas the Indian holy texts that were composed of around 1900BC. Besides yoga, three major religions came from those texts Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism. Around 200-400AD, a sage called Patanjali composed the Yoga Sutras.


e) What does "OM" mean in yoga?

Om is a very simple sound with a complex meaning. It is the whole universe coalesced into a single word, representing the union of mind, body, and spirit that is at the heart of yoga. Often chanted three times at the start and at the finish of a yoga session, the sound of om is actually three syllables. 




f) Why do you say Namaste in yoga?

The gesture Namaste represents the belief that there is a Divine spark within each of us that is located in the heart chakra. The gesture is an acknowledgment of the soul in one by the soul in another.
