“Yoga is more than just a workout – It is about working on yourself.”
Yoga – an art of living well – is composed of 75% practice and 25% theory.
The benefits of yoga can only be experienced or seen when we live and practice it regularly. Yoga teaches you to live with nature, with total harmony between the head, heart and hand i.e. the intellectual, emotional and physical aspects of the personality.
Lord Krishna says in the Gita – ‘Sharir madhyam khalu dharm sadhanam’. (The body is the medium to fulfill all dharma). If the body is not able to give us adequate support, we become helpless.
Unfortunately, we have been abusing our body. That is why, even at a young age – e.g. 25-30 years, we hear of people suffering from heart ailments and many other psycho – physiological ailments which were unheard of a short while ago. We tend to take to yoga only after we experience certain setbacks to our own health and well-being. Health is, however, more than simply the absence of disease. It refers to a more holistic view where the mind, body and heart are in total harmony. Yoga, then serves a much greater purpose and helps you achieve a healthy lifestyle, with a noticeable change in personality.
