Program

What is yoga?

Yoga has been practiced for at least 5000 years as a means to reach both physiological and spiritual mastery. Originally from India, yoga is today practiced throughout the world by people seeking to understand their body, gain greater control over their mind and to improve their flexibility and strength.

Yoga is actually one of the six schools of Hindu philosophy; it focuses on meditation as a path to self-knowledge and liberation. The deep connection between mind and body that can be attained through yoga is what attracts millions of people to regular yogic practices.

Sivananda yoga

Sivananda yoga is a form of Hatha yoga that emphasizes on maintaining the health and mental well-being of practitioners. It aims to retain the vitality of body through five core principles that are:

  • Proper exercise
  • Proper breathing
  • Proper relaxation
  • Proper diet
  • Positive thinking and meditation

A typical yoga class opens with relaxation and chanting, followed by three rounds of cleansing breath and six rounds of alternate nostril breathing. Students then warm up with sun salutations and leg lifts. The class includes, but is not limited to, the following 12 poses which strengthen, stretch, and relax every muscle, joint, and organ in the body: headstand; shoulderstand; plough; fish; sitting forward bend; cobra; locust; bow; spinal twist; crow; standing forward bend; triangle. There are modifications available for every pose to accommodate all levels of practice and all body types.
