What is Yoga?
The word yoga means "to bring together or merge" - it comes from the Sanskrit root yuj, which means "to join" or "to yoke". Thus Yoga aims to join the mind and body into a single, stronger and more aware harmonious entity and improve all round fitness and health in the process. While there are over one hundred different types (schools) of yoga in existence, most sessions typically involve breathing exercises, meditation, and assuming postures (Asanas) that stretch and flex a variety of muscle groups. Recently, new movements have been developed which combine yoga and pilates.
Types of Yoga
Among the many styles or types of yoga or yogic practices are: Ashtanga Yoga, Mantra-Yoga (Sound Yoga) which uses the repetition of sounds (such as om, hûm, ram, hare Krishna, etc.) Râja-Yoga which aims at liberation through meditation. Hatha-Yoga which aims at liberation through physical transformation. Jnâna-Yoga (Wisdom of Yoga) aiming at liberation by distinguishing between the real and the unreal. Karma-Yoga (Action Yoga) which aims to liberate by transcending the ego. Bhakti-Yoga (Devotional Yoga) which aims for self-surrender in the face of the Divine.
Starting to Practice Yoga
The best way to understand yoga exercises, including asanas, breathing techniques and meditation, is to join a class led by a qualified yoga expert. Alternatively, learn about yoga at home with a video or DVD.
What are the Health Benefits of Yoga?
Lastly, some yogis develop a heightened sense of awareness of an impending health disorder or infection. Such a recognition is invaluable for pre-emptive treatment.
