Yoga for Harmony

‘An ounce of practice is worth tons of theory’
Yoga is the beginning of the whole journey towards that healing process. The science of yoga was designed for the evolution of human beings. The tools for this evolution are the body and mind. The mission is to spread the teachings of classical yoga, integrating through the five points of yoga:

  • Proper Exercise
  • Proper Breathing
  • Proper Relaxation
  • Proper Diet
  • Positive thinking and Meditation
    into a means to achieve physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing, and self-realization. We uphold the practice of all aspects of the classical teachings of a synthesis of yoga with a strong emphasis on practical experience.
    Here yoga helps to exercise every part of the body, stretching and toning the muscles and joints, the spine and the entire skeletal system. By maintaining the spine’s flexibility and strength, circulation is increased. They work also on the internal organs, glands and nerves keeping all systems in radiant health. By releasing physical and mental tension they also liberate vast resources of energy. Yoga regards the body as a vehicle for the soul on its journey towards perfection. Yoga is designed to develop not only the body, but it also increases the mental faculties and spiritual capacities.
    Many of us use only a fraction of our lung capacity for breathing, resulting in poor physical and mental health. Yoga teaches us how to use the lungs to their maximum capacity and how to control our breath. Deep, slow, rhythmical breathing increases oxygen intake and removes fatigue and lethargy. Pranayama (control of the vital energy) is achieved through specific breathing exercises. Yoga teaches us that the mind and prana are interdependent. By controlling the prana through breathing exercises, we control the mind. Pranayama is a powerful tool to render the mind calm and clear and the intellect sharp. Through the practice of pranayama, we increase the intake of prana and experience increased strength and vitality.
    When the body and the mind are constantly overworked, their natural efficiency to perform work diminishes. Our stressful lifestyles make it difficult for us to relax. We forget that rest and relaxation are nature’s way of recharging and are an essential ingredient for physical and mental health. Yoga teaches us powerful techniques of deep relaxation. By consciously relaxing every muscle of the body and controlling the breath we rejuvenate the nervous system and attain a deep sense of inner peace. Practices such as meditation led us to a more profound appreciation of life, bringing joy and contentment into our daily lives.
    It keeps the body lean and limber and the mind clear and sharp. A pure and moderate diet is the best possible guarantee of physical and mental health, bringing harmony and vitality to both body and mind.
    They improve our efficiency and increase our mental power. Through various methods of controlling our own thoughts, including the powerful technique of meditation and through the study of Veda’s we are led to inner peace, integration and harmony.
