Yoga by definition is the Union, it is the philosophy and the practice that aims to bring together, to unite, to become ONE.
It is a holistic approach to life that promotes understanding and integration of all the aspects of our being: physical body, mind, emotions and spirit.
It is not only some physical practices, but a way of living our lives without the division and conflicts between the needs of body and the feelings of the heart, between the desires of the mind and the purity of the spirit.
For achieving this unity, it has prescribed an eightfold path (Ashtanga) that practices all our faculties: physical, vital, mental, social, emotional and spiritual. This system was explained by sage Patanjali in his ‘Patanjali Yoga Sutras’ written centuries before our current era.
In our modern times, It is one of the most effective and experienced systems that can help the individual achieve health and balance in all the aspects of his/her life…
It helps in:
- Relaxing and decreasing stress levels
- Improving emotional balance and mental stillness
- Improving the functioning of all body organs
- Improving metabolism and immunity
- Regulating the breath and blood circulation
- Strengthening the muscular-skeletal system
- Self- study and Self-realization
- Changing bad habits and attitudes
All Yogic practices are derived from the philosophy that everything is one through Realization, Transcendence and Bliss; in Sanskrit, it is called Satchidananda, which summarizes all that Yoga is concerned about which is: Truth, Consciousness, & the Joy of Being.
In Pushkar Ayurveda Niketan we recognize the utmost importance of Yogic practices in the course of treatment or routines for all our clients and patients… And for that we care very much for preparing the best environment for practice and for our Yoga teachers and instructors to be of fine knowledge and experience.
