Yoga is not just about twisting and turning. Yoga means to exist in union within yourself and with the rest of creation.- Sadhguru

Yoga, 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". When your body, mind and spirit and existence are in absolute harmony it is yoga. Yoga is a Hindu spiritual and ascetic discipline, which includes breath control, simple meditation, and the adoption of specific bodily postures called Asanas.

 

In modern times the increasing incidents of suicides, murder, mass shooting, road rage, addictions
thefts, rape, terrorism, etc clearly shows the disharmony in human’s brain. According to Sadhguru, Yoga is a state of mind when you fine-tune yourself to a point where everything functions so beautifully within you, the best of your abilities and energies naturally flows out of you. You feel rejuvenated and energized. Yoga is rapidly becoming integrated into such traditionally secular institutions as public education, health care, and the workplace all over the world.

 

Body, Mind, and Spirit are in absolute conflict resulting in anxiety, frustration, insecurity, depression and other mental diseases. Mental peace and happiness are missing from their life. Man, of today, has come far from his true self. Yoga is a tool to bring harmony, happiness and peace in human life. It helps in activating Yoga energies up to optimum level and help them to use inner energies for higher possibilities. If a person can attain a little bit of mastery over his own energies, he can do things beyond his imagination.

According to scientists, a human being generates approximately 70,000 thoughts per day. These can be positive as well as negative. Thought decides the quality of our actions. Positive thoughts make a positive human being and negative thoughts an unhappy human being. There is a strong relationship between body and mind also Many of our physical ailments are due to negativity which we carry in our minds. In meditation, through breath, we try to tame our monkey mind. Meditation rationalises, purifies the brain and thus generates a positive energy field. Which brings us closer to our true self.
