Program

Asanas

Asanas are yoga postures and the physical movements of yoga practice and in combination with pranayama or breathing techniques, it constitutes the style of yoga referred to as Hatha yoga. Traditionally asanas are positions which make you fit and healthy in all the way. In the Yoga Sutra, Patanjali describes asana as a "firm, comfortable posture", referring specifically to the seated posture, most basic of all the asanas.

Normally asanas will be held for an average of 2 or 3 minutes. Besides being held steadily it should also be held comfortably. No pain should be experienced while holding the posture or in the hour or days that follow. Hindu shastras tell 84 lakhs asanas. A lakh being equal to 100,000, this brings the number of yoga postures to 8,400,000. The asanas are:

  • Cultural posture
  • Meditative
  • Relaxing

Pranayama

Pranayama is a Sanskrit word meaning "extension of the praa or breath" or "extension of the life force". The word is composed of two Sanskrit words: prana, life force, or noted particularly as the breath), and ayma, to extend or draw out. (Not "restrain, or control" as is often translated from yam instead of ayama). It is a yogic discipline with origins in ancient India.

Pranayama is traditionally viewed as a practice involving a lot more than just breathing for relaxation. It is a term having a broad range of meanings and connotations. Pranayama is the foundation for your body because it refreshes your breathing system and makes fit your respiratory system. It is a term having a broad range of meanings and connotations. The sage Patanjali, in Yoga Sutras, defines pranayama as regulation of incoming and outgoing breath coupled with retention. The pranayamas are:

  • Purak Kumbhak Rechak
  • Shitali
  • Shitkari

Meditation

Despite all its popularity, today very few truly know what meditation is. Some regard meditation is the mental concentration on something, others consider that you meditate when you imagine something that gives you peace or satisfaction. All these methods are being with 1 goal to slow down and eventually, completely stop the incessant activity of your minds. These exercises are not really meditation it is the substitute for meditation because it is normally very difficult to stop your minds all-together.

In reality, meditation is a state of thoughtless awareness. The real meaning of meditation is transforming your mind. By engaging with a particular meditation practice, you learn the patterns and habits of your mind, and the practice offers a means to cultivate new, more positive ways of being. With regular work and patience, these nourishing focused states of mind can deepen into profoundly, peaceful, and energized states of mind. The meditations are:

  • Ajapa Japa meditation
  • Buddha meditation
  • Chakra meditation

  • Om meditation
  • Prana meditation
  • Shiva meditation
  • Soham meditation
  • Tratak (candle) meditation
  • Yoga nidra meditation

Mantra chanting

The word "mantra" has 2 parts, "man" which is the root of the Sanskrit word for mind and "tra" which is the root of the word instrument. A mantra is, therefore, an instrument of the mind, a powerful sound or vibration that you can use to enter a deep state of meditation. A combination of certain codified sounds is a mantra. The correct chanting of mantras under the guidance of the Siddha (guru) brings about a manifestation of thoughts and desires, and even of devs and devis.

It is originated from Ved which was written by Lord Brahma. The teachings of the Vedas consist of various mantric chants or hymns cognized by different seers or rishis from the cosmic mind. Your body gets effect from mantra chanting in a good way. It removes all the diseases from your body and keeps away your body from other negative energy. The mantras are:

Yoga philosophy

The main philosophy of yoga is simple: mind, body, and spirit are all one and cannot be clearly separated. Yet there is a multitude of philosophical ideas developed by looking into the deeper dimensions of the body, mind, and spirit.

Yoga is a set of spiritual practices but in itself is not an institutionalized religion, per se. Hinduism is related to yoga through a common recognition of the Vedas as an authoritative source, and both Buddhism and Jainism share many of the core values of the yoga tradition. But classical yoga is best understood as a system of spiritual practice, rather than a particular religion.

  • Hatha yoga pra di pika: 7 folds systems of yoga Introduction, qualification of a yogis, place, time, food, and lifestyle for yoga Sadhana, and Nada Anusamdhana.
  • Yoga Sutra: Introduction of yoga, Ashtanga yoga, Chitta Vrtitti, and 5 Kleshas
  • Yogic philosophy (part-I): Description of nadis and chakras
  • Yogic philosophy (part-II) Five Pranas, five sheaths of bodies, and effect of the yogi practice

Specific bandhas are Mula Bandha, contraction of the perineum, Uddiyana Bandha, contraction of the abdomen into the rib cage, Jalandhara Bandha, tucking the chin close to the chest, Maha Bandha, combining all three of the above bandhas.

Among these, it is a short description of the few important ones. You can select that which suits you well and practice regularly.

Ayurveda teaching

Ayurvedic medicine is a system of traditional Hindu medicine native to the Indian subcontinent. Contemporary practices derived from Ayurvedic traditions are a type of alternative medicine. Ayurveda is a discipline of the upaveda or "auxiliary knowledge" in Vedic tradition.

The origins of Ayurveda are also found in the Atharvaveda, which contains 114 hymns and incantations described as magical cures for disease. Since then Ayurveda has stood for the wholesome physical, the mental and spiritual growth of humanity around the world. Today, it's a unique, indispensable branch of medicine, a complete naturalistic system that depends on the diagnosis of your body's humor - Vata, Pitta, and Kapha to achieve the right balance. The lessons are:

Another meaning of Kriya is an outward physical manifestation of awakened kundalini, such as a spontaneous body movement related to kundalini energy flow. Kriya Shakti is "a power of thought, Purity," said to be greatly studied by.

The purity of body encourages purity of the mind. Yoga has developed six cleansing techniques or “Shat Kriyas” for purification of the physical body.
