Sanskrit definition of yoga

Yoga means union or connection. In Sanskrit, the word yoga is used to signify any form of connection. Yoga is both a state of connection and a body of techniques that allow us to connect to anything.

Conscious connection to something allows us to feel and experience that thing, person, or experience. The experience of connection is a state of yoga, a joyful and blissful, fulfilling experience.

Awareness is the secret of yoga.

There is no single definition of yoga. In order to experience truth through yoga, we must study its classical definitions and reflect on our own understanding of it.

If we wish to connect to the intuitive, creative part of us, and realize the eternal Self at our core, we need to consider what yoga really is. Each definition of yoga reveals part of the ocean of knowledge and experience that forms the yogic path.

There are many traditional yogic paths that facilitate connection to the highest truth and awaken our own consciousness, including tantra, mantra, laya, kundalini, bhakti, jnana, karma yoga, and so on. Each path specializes in its own techniques and methods to awaken greater awareness and connection to self and life.

Yoga practices include posture (asana), breathing (pranayama), control of subtle forces (mudra and bandha), cleansing the body-mind (shat karma), visualizations, chanting of mantras, and many forms of meditation.

At its most practical level yoga is a process of becoming more aware of who we are. Yoga techniques facilitate balance and health, and unfold our dormant potential. Yoga allows us to be more aware of ourselves and feel connected. As such, yoga is a process of self-discovery. This leads us to self-mastery and self-realization.

Yoga is a science, that is, it is a body of techniques that lead us to consciously connect with ourselves and with life, the experience of yoga. As yoga is a science, there is no dogma or belief system attached to it. Yoga simply tells us to do a certain practice and then to feel the effect of that practice, e.g. if we breath slowly in a relaxed manner we will slow our heart rate; if we focus the mind we will develop mental peace and deep insight.

In Sanskrit, the word yoga is used to signify any form of connection. In a philosophical sense, however, yoga means the conscious connection of the limited little egoic self with the unlimited, eternal, higher Self.

The great sage Patanjali, in the system of Raja Yoga, gave one of the best definitions of yoga. He said, Yoga is the blocking (nirodha) of mental modifications (chitta vritti) so that the seer (drashta) re-identifies with the (higher) Self. Patanjalis system has come to be the epitome of Classical Yoga Philosophy and is one of the 6 or 7 major philosophies of India.

Hatha yoga includes postures (asana), breathing techniques (pranayama), purification techniques (shat karmas) energy regulation techniques (mudra and bandha). The definition of yoga in the Hatha Yoga texts is the union of the upward force (prana) and the downward force (apana) at the navel center (manipura chakra). Hatha yoga teaches us to master the totality of our life force, which is also called prana. By learning how to feel and manipulate the life force, we access the source of our being.

Kundalini yoga is the science of liberating the dormant potential energy in the base of the spine (kundalini). The definition of yoga in kundalini yoga is the union of the mental current (ida) and the pranic current (pingala) in the third eye (ajna chakra) or at the base chakra (muladhara chakra). This unifies duality in us by connecting body and mind and leads to the awakening of spiritual consciousness.

Big Shaktis favourite definition of yoga is that it is any method that allows us to wake up to who or what we really are and to what life is all about. Anything that allows us to be more aware of ourselves and to feel connected to ourselves and life is a form of yoga.

Everything we do can become yoga if it is done with awareness. Awareness is the key to discovering all the mysteries of who we truly are. Yoga reveals the luminous intelligence and the beauty that lies within us.

When practicing yoga asanas at home, there are so many ways to keep things interesting and continue extending our boundaries.

To know where those boundaries are, its important to practice a variety of poses, not just the ones you like best. This will really help you tune into your body, as you move into and hold the various positions. Youll notice which poses you find hard, which ones you love, and where you are feeling stiffness in your body. All of these are indications of what postures your body needs, and they can help you design a customized and challenging sequence.

So here are a few tips. Take a few minutes to write down the areas of your body that you know need attentionachy joints, perhaps, or a stubborn tight spot in your back. Maybe you want to strengthen your legs, or core, or loosen up tight hamstrings. If youve been stressed out, you may need to calm your nerves with some yoga breathing or restorative poses.

Once you know what you want to work on, write down the poses or techniques that target these areas and put them together in a sequence. Let these be your go-to poses for a couple of weeks, or a couple of months (although you can vary the poses you do with them each day). At the end of that time, notice how youre feeling and consider how you might change up the poses to target any new areas you want to address.

You might find it helpful to begin each days session with a breathing technique, or a few minutes of Yoga Sound Meditation to help calm the mind. Then move on to gentle stretches to loosen up the body overall. Next you could do your chosen poses one by one, including counter poses when necessary. For example, counter backbends with a forward bend or spinal twist (spinal twists are good counter poses for most postures). I like to include at least one twist, usually Lower Body Rock, at the end of my sequence. It helps balance out the effects of the poses by stretching the spine and back muscles, leaving you relaxed and ready for Shavasana (Corpse Pose), however brief.

Another way to challenge yourself is by holding the poses a little longer or doing more repetitions than usual. If youre not sure how long you generally hold a pose, count your breaths as you hold, and try to hold for a few more breaths, after your first inclination to come out of the pose. You can gradually build up to holding longer, which will help you gain strength and stamina, as well as flexibility.

You might also like to create a theme for your practice and vary it day by day (or do it every day for a week before moving on to something else). For example, if you know that backbends are challenging for you, design a sequence that slowly warms up your back. Cat Stretch is a good one to start with, then move on to gradually deeper backbends, peaking at your target backbend of the day, which might be Locust, Bow, or Camel. Then, as I said before, be sure to do a few cool-down counter poses, before spending a few minutes in relaxation and meditation.

Of course, there are always those days when you dont feel like challenging yourself. Maybe youre tired or low on energy. You can approach these days in one of two ways. Push through and challenge yourself anywayhalfway through your session your energy may return and stay with you for the rest of the day. Or you could take a break from your regular asana routine and do some gentle, restorative poses. Try both at different times to see which works best for you.

One of the perks of a regular home practice is that we have the time and the freedom to listen to our bodies, learn where our boundaries are, experiment, challenge ourselves, and change around our practice as we see fit, letting it continually evolve so that we are always getting something more out of itphysically, mentally, and spiritually. Have fun with it!

8 Yoga Poses for Beginners and Their Benefits | Everyday Health

Posted: at 5:48 am


without comments

In Downward-Facing Dog, your body forms an inverted V-shape. Start by placing both hands on the mat in front of you, palms down; your hands should be slightly in front of your shoulders. Place your knees on the ground directly under your hips. Exhale as you lift your knees off the ground and lift your buttocks and hips toward the ceiling. Push the top of your thighs back and stretch your heels down toward the floor. Keep your head down between your upper arms and in line with them, not hanging down. If you notice your lower back rounding, try bending your knees to help lengthen your back.

Downward-Facing Dog calms the nervous system, works on overall flexibility, decompresses the spine, tones the arms, sculpts the legs, and opens the shoulders, says Cullis. The pose is often held for five breaths between sides, or longer for more strength-building benefits. Lengthen from your wrists to your hips on your inhales, and deepen your roots from your hips to your heels with each exhale, suggests Cullis.

Wake Up Yoga

Posted: at 5:48 am

Founder and director of Wake Up Yoga, Corina wholeheartedly believes that the ancient practice of yoga perfectly complements our modern pursuit of vibrant health, personal fulfillment, harmonious relationships, and spiritual enrichment. Viewing asana practice as an entry-point to self-study, Corina weaves the tenets of yoga philosophy into her teaching, inspiring students to discover how this age-old practice remains relevant today in their own lives.

Creating community has always been my primary objective. I wanted to create a place where everyone feels accepted, embraced, and has a sense of belonging. I wanted to create a sanctuary in which people can take off their armor of defensiveness, learn to be kind to themselves, feel safe being kind to others, discover their true priorities, and dare to live their lives with authenticity, integrity, and tremendous joy. I wanted to create the space for people to attend to their greatest gifts: true health and vitality, on all levels of being.

Wake Up Yoga is incredibly warm and welcoming. Creating this magical space may be the very best thing I ever do with my life. Everyone is welcome. All of our teachers train at Wake Up Yoga, so there is a unifying subtext. Our teachers use intelligent sequencing, effective language, supportive props, and encouragement to make the practice accessible to everyone present. The classes often have a philosophical theme to create a context for the practice, and there is no sense of competition. And still each teacher has her/his own voice and passion for the practice, so the classes have their own unique flavor.

Yoga is not about accomplishing poses, but everything you learn about yourself along the way. We know that children learn life lessons through play; I believe adults can learn life lessons through yoga practice.

I am motivated by a pursuit of truth and a wish to impart curiosity about things we could so easily take for granted like having a body and being alive. I seek to inspire students to discover their boundless potential and live their lives on purpose.

What is Yoga? Yoga Australia

Posted: at 5:47 am


without comments

There are many different ideas related to Yoga, where it comes from, what it is all about, and how to practice a range of techniques.

Generally, it is recognised as an ancient system of philosophies, principles and practices derived from the Vedic tradition of India and the Himalayas, more than 2500 years ago. It is a system that recognises the multi-dimensional nature of the human person, and primarily relates to the nature and workings of the mind, based on experiential practice and self-enquiry.

In Yoga, the body, breath and mind are seen as a union of these multi-dimensional aspects of each and every human being. The system and various techniques of Yoga cultivate the experience of that union, leading to greater integration of being, internal peacefulness, and clarity of the mind. It is a system that is designed to cultivate health and happiness, and a greater sense of self-awareness and higher consciousness.

Yoga cultivates health and wellbeing (physical, emotional, mental and social) through the regular practice of a range of many different techniques, including postures and movement, breath awareness and breathing exercises, relaxation and concentration, self-inquiry and meditation.

Yoga is an approach to life that values appropriate effort, based on balance and harmony, within each person and with each other.

Quality research is important for any field of well-being, health-care and personal development. It could be argued that the practice of yoga has undergone hundreds of years of research through the trialling of the ancient practitioners, who in turn observed the effects upon their students.

However in our contemporary context, we expect that protocols, interventions and other activities that form part of our well-being or health-care plan can stand the test of our contemporary research methods.

In recent years there have been a growing number of well designed studies into the health benefits of yoga. These show that the practice of yoga is safe, useful and very cost effective for a wide range of conditions and life-stages

Yoga Australia continues to keep informed of the latest research and has compiled a representative list of some of the areas of research undertaken in the past few years.
