What is yoga, exactly? Is it just an exercise form? Is it a religion, a philosophy, an ideology? Or is it something else entirely? The word “yoga” literally means “union”.
But as per my knowledge and experience, yoga means the real you , it means the body, mind and soul . God has gifted us with these but as human beings we have created our own problems. Removing all our blockages, coming back to purity and cleansing ourselves in various ways such as asanas, pranayam , shatkriyas, bandhas , mudras, meditation is known as yoga .
Yoga —-The Physical and Spiritual Well-being
Yoga is primarily a spiritual discipline and means union with God, or, union of the little Ego-self with the Divine Self, the Infinite Spirit.
Yoga is an art as well as a science. It is a science, because it offers practical methods for controlling body and mind, thereby making deep meditation possible.
Yoga is not a system of beliefs. It takes into account the influence on each other of body and mind, and brings them into mutual harmony. So often, for instance, the mind cannot concentrate simply because of tension or illness in the body, which prevents the energy from flowing to the brain. So often, too, the energy in the body is weakened because the will is dispirited, or paralyzed by harmful emotions. Yoga teaches how, through breath-control, to still the mind and attain higher states of awareness.
Panchtattva Yoga classes are dynamic in nature, focusing on alignment, breath-and-movement synchronisation, and finding relaxation within the poses. We encourage students to explore their own bodies and capacities, and connect with their inner peace. For Panchtattva , yoga is more than just a practice- it is a way of life.
