WHAT IS YOGA?
"Remember the entrance door to the sanctuary is inside you"
Yoga is a philosophy, science and an art, first described in old Sanskrit texts – the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras. Yoga is ancient, and yet so relevant to us in a modern frenetic world. It allows us time to return to our body and reconnect with ourselves. The word yoga is generally translated as joining or union. Yoga is a journey of exploration of the body & mind with the breath.
Yoga connects mind, body and spirit. It helps to quieten the mind, strengthen the body and find happiness. With regular practice you will soon discover the wonderful benefits it has to offer, leading you to a sanctuary of inner peace and taking you back to who truly are.
WHO IS PANTAJALI?
Patanjali, an old Indian sage of around 200 BCE, left us a unique book on classical yoga, “The Yoga Sutras”, 196 aphorisms or pearls of the wisdom on yoga. One of the most important books on yoga. It offers us guidelines for living a more purposeful and meaningful life. It is a philosophy on which yoga is based and which still applies to our lives today.
"Yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind."
Patanjali defined yoga as Chitta Vritti Nirodha, which literally means that when you still the activity and chatter of the mind, you are in yoga. In other words, you are doing yoga in order to achieve mental clarity, stillness, and freedom from the monkey mind.
“Take time out,
Reconnect with yourself,
Move, Breathe, Relax,
Ease body and mind,
Find stillness, harmony and freedom,
And ask “Who am I ?”
