Yoga for better living

Yoga means union…union of physical, mental and spiritual …It is not enough to have a sound body alone without a clear mind.  Spiritually healthy implies you are united with the world. Well integrated and ready for any eventuality.

The goal of yoga is to have peaceful crystal clear mind coupled with a healthy and supple body.  Hatha yoga addresses this aspect though the physical side of the individual. The body is the temple and it has been taking anything, any abuse, any amount of work output. The time has come to respect it. Accept your body as it is, accept it totally without any condemnation or criticism. Once you love your body, slowly see how it responds back to you with its strength and robust health to support you in your endeavors.

Hatha yoga maybe practiced by different age groups, any physical condition such as stiffness, flab or tension prone individuals.  As the practice or sadhana deepens, all these negativeness drop by themselves!

In yoga dhyan center, yoga for better living is a way of life.  Meditation or dhyan needs to be practiced along with yoga, as it is the software and yoga is the hardware, to borrow from the computer terminology.  It is actually a fitting description because, if you have a PC only with hardware and without software, how to use it?

Meditation is the software that needs to be installed on the yogic body, so that together, it will take us forward in our journey in a healthy and robust way.
