Yoga: the ‘work-in’ of the body

Yoga is not a religion; it is a way of living that aims towards ‘a healthy mind in a healthy body’.


Man is a physical, mental and spiritual being; yoga helps promote a balanced development of all the three. Other forms of physical exercises, like aerobics, assure only physical well-being. They have little to do with the development of the spiritual or astral body.

Yogic exercises recharge the body with cosmic energy and facilitates: 

  • Attainment of perfect equilibrium and harmony

  • Promotes self- healing.

  • Removes negative blocks from the mind and toxins from the body

  • Enhances personal power

  • Increases self-awareness

  • Helps in attention, focus and concentration, especially important for children

  • Reduces stress and tension in the physical body by activating the parasympathetic nervous system

The aspirant feels rejuvenated and energized. Thus, yoga bestows upon every aspirant the powers to control body and mind.
