Yoga is the way of life that integrates the body, mind and spirit. Yoga alleviates mental stress and encourages relaxation and inner peace. Furthermore, yoga can also be therapeutic – both as a remedy and as a prophylactic. In the Ayurvedic teachings, yoga and meditation are an essential part of any programme of treatment to establish a balance between the Doshas. In all but a few cases, yoga and meditation practice are integral parts of the daily schedule.
Karma Yoga - the yoga of action, the path of selfless service.
Bhakti Yoga - the yoga of devotion
Raja Yoga - the yoga of mind control, the systematic approach
Jnana Yoga - the yoga of knowledge, the philosophical approach
Raja yoga is the path of systematic analysis and control of the mind. Compiled by Patanjali Maharshi, Raja yoga is also known as ‘Astanga yoga’, because its practices can be divided into eight limbs (astanga=eight limbs).
Yogasanas- are various body postures, which are practiced to calm the mind enabling a deep state of meditation to occur. It involves various poses such as standing poses, sitting poses and lying poses. During their performance we stretch and relax our structure fully. This frees nerves from stress and strain and improves their functioning.
Pranayama- Knowledge and control of prana (vital energy) is called pranayama. Controlling the mind is not possible without controlling the prana as the two are intimately connected. Through pranayama the body becomes strong and healthy, the mind becomes one – pointed. The mind is prepared for dharana (control of senses) and dhyana(meditation).
Dhyana (Meditation)-This is a state of higher consciousness achieved through a fully rested and relaxed body and a fully awake and relaxed mind. In meditation there is constant observation of mind. Meditation is an experience that cannot be described just as colors cannot be described to a blind person.
