Yoga is the Integration of Mind and Body
by Sanjeev Bhanot
In today’s fast moving life where most of our time is spent between workplace and home, one is hardly left with any time for stress control or exercise. Yoga can be a perfect solution for those who are in a fix about life. Yoga is not confined to any age or time. There is no restriction to find a proper place for yoga. You can do it anywhere you like it.
The Philosophy of Yoga was First Described by Patanjali
According to one of the Yogalife’s trained teachers, “…Yoga Teacher Training Course at Yogalife was not just a physically challenging experience, but involved deep psychological and emotional work and in every sense it was utterly transformational. I’m going to take this experience towards life…”
It is also said that Yoga is the philosophy of the mind and body’s integration. It helps one explore the inner space that we generally forget to focus on. Patanjali was the first to describe the practice and philosophy of yoga. Yoga is a form of mind-body fitness that involves a combination of muscular activity and an internally directed mindful focus on awareness of the self, the breath, and energy.
Basic Principles of Yoga’s Healing System
Four basic principles underlie the teachings and practices of yoga’s healing system.
- The first principle is the human body is a holistic entity comprised of various interrelated dimensions inseparable from one another and the health or illness of any one dimension affects the other dimensions.
- The second principle is individuals and their needs are unique and therefore must be approached in a way that acknowledges this individuality and their practice must be tailored accordingly.
- The third principle is yoga is self-empowering; the student is his or her own healer. Yoga engages the student in the healing process; by playing an active role in their journey toward health, the healing comes from within, instead of from an outside source and a greater sense of autonomy is achieved.
- The fourth principle is that the quality and state of an individuals mind is crucial to healing. When the individual has a positive mind-state healing happens more quickly, whereas if the mind-state is negative, healing may be prolonged.
