Yoga is a timeless traditional from Rig Veda with a history of over 5000 years. The word “Yogasana” (asana or posture in brief) refers to a posture in which one feels relaxed while keeping the body active internally.

The Rishis (Vedic Sages) had keenly observed the sitting and standing postures of different animals, which in sprite of limited faculties, have wonderful physical capabilities that man is deprived of. They had studied the effects of different postures in the laboratory of their own body and developed specific asanas which had rejuvenating effects on the entire body-mind-soul system.

Yoga is a pleasant inward journey of purification that illuminates life beyond pain. Immerse yourself in this amazing journey of self-transformation and experience peace and lasting happiness. Yoga awakens the spiritual self, makes the practitioner experience inner divinity.

Yoga is not an ancient myth buried in oblivion. It is the most valuable inheritance of the present. It is the essential need of today and the culture of tomorrow.
