What is Yoga?
Yoga is a complete science of self-discipline. Yoga balances, harmonizes, purifies, and strengthens the Body, Mind and Soul of the practitioner. It shows the perfect peace with one's Self, the world, nature, and a higher sense. Millions of people have begun to practice Yoga through the application of simple, time-tested and fun techniques.
These are the 5 principles of Yoga, which can be easily incorporated into everyone's own pattern of life:
1) Proper excercise (Asanas)
2) Proper breathing (Pranayama)
3) Proper relaxiation (Savasana)
4) Proper diet (Ahimsa)
5) Positive thinking & meditation (Dharana & Dhyana)
"Yoga, an ancient but perfect science, deals with the evolution of humanity. This evolution includes all aspects of one's being, from bodily health to self realization. Yoga means union - the union of body with consciousness and consciousness with the soul. Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day to day life and endows skill in the performance of one's actions."
