“Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.” – The Bhagavad Gita
The word ‘Yoga’ comes from a Sanskrit word which means “to join, to unite.”
In a world that thrives on speed and competition, a world that doesn’t sleep and doesn’t stop, having something or doing something that keeps us calm and composed is of utmost importance and that’s where Yoga comes to the rescue. In our stressful lives, we often have no time for our own selves, to be at peace, to have a healthy mind as well as body. Yoga helps us attain that. It aligns our body, mind and soul to provide us the much needed calm. It is being practiced since time immemorial to relieve stress, to get rid of negative blocks, to enhance self awareness, enhance concentration, focus and much more. The benefits of Yoga extend not just to our bodies, but also our mind and soul. Along with increasing muscle strength, respiration, flexibility, it works wonders to tone one’s body. It helps one feel energized and rejuvenated. Yoga has always been linked to providing harmony of thoughts as well as physically. It boosts confidence, improves immunity and helps attain a healthier lifestyle.It not only works like magic for the mental and physical health, but also for the social and spiritual health. It helps one to experience life like never before.Yoga is not an exercise, but a way of living (a positive lifestyle) and thus has a positive effect on us. Doing yoga everyday keeps negativity away.
