Kanga yoga is an energetic, alignment‐based flow yoga practice using music, gravity, and the breath to rediscover and rejuvenate the body and the mind. The practice is inspired by the teachings of Swami Sivananda, Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar, and Sri Krishna Pattabhi Jois. According to the Ayurveda system (“science of life” in Sanskrit), people have different biological body types. A relaxed Yin yoga practice may be good for one body type, whereas an energetic Yang practice may be best for another body type. Our biological energies vary according to our lifestyles.
Ayurveda views illness as caused by an imbalance in a person’s physical or mental constitution and therefore seeks to gently bring a person’s body and mind back into a healthy balance. Kanga yoga adapts yoga to the individual rather than the individual to yoga. Each class deepens student’s yoga practice, provides a practical understanding of yoga and offers the opportunity to focus on specific postures, their benefit, alignment, and breath control. Kanga yoga integrates sound, asana, and mudra to bring the body and mind into balance and harmony.
Music itself is Hatha yoga Sadhana; it involves a good amount of control and regulation of breath. Moreover, the various musical notes have their own corresponding nadis (subtle channels in the vital sheath of the body) in the vital centers within the Kundalini chakras, and music vibrates these nadis, purifies them, and awakens the psychic and spiritual power dormant in them.
Ayurveda and yoga are sister Vedic sciences that have been united for thousands of years. They show the way to achieve sacred balance in the mind and body, which leads to physical and mental wellness. Ayurveda can be defined as a system, which uses the inherent principles of nature, to help maintain health in a person by keeping the individual’s body and mind in perfect equilibrium with nature.
Ayurveda is a complete way of life, a holistic health system comprising diet, yoga, massage, detoxification, herbal remedies, meditation and daily lifestyle. Ayurveda improves not only a person's health, but also their well-being, behavior, and state of mind.
