“When life is foggy, path is unclear and mind is dull, remember your breath. It has the power to give you the peace. It has the power to resolve the unsolved equations of life.”
“ Amit Ray”.
Yoga is the combination of physical, mental and spiritual practices originated in ancient India and nowdays a famous method all over the world of health developer and relaxation. Yogis practiced Yoga long before any written account of it came into existence, passing down the discipline verbally to their students on and on till its arrival into the Western world and our lives.
The world Yoga comes from the Sanskrit with the meaning of joining together. Yoga is union, is the connection with our inner teacher, our natural self and the hole universe. The practice of Yoga brings peace and connection to our lives throughout a series of body posture known as asanas, breath control, pranayama and meditation. By linking the posture with the breath and a focused mind we create a flow of energy and movement that heats up the body, enhance muscle flexibility, increase strength, balance, purify the nervous system and brings fresh oxygen to the blood stream.
