Yoga2Go – By Benedetta Spada

 

Yoga In India

Amidst the stress of the daily activities our mind yearns for tranquility. Often it is temporarily attained by a walk on the seashore or by gazing at the soothing sunrise. So what better way to relax than to take a break and opt for the soothing activities yoga and meditation? Worst when its vacations we find yourself doing the same kind of the things, managing all essentialities, attending this thing and that thing. We don't recommend you to escape all this but you sure need a break and there is no ideal way of doing it other than go for a peaceful destination and meditate for sometime.  A sage, Patanjali, put forward yoga as a system of philosophy. The common form of Yoga is also referred to as the Ashtang Yoga, which comprises of eight basic features namely Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, dharna, dhayan and samadhi. Each feature has its own significance. Yoga promotes the universal disciplines of truth, self-control, non-violence, non-stealing and non-greed. The second feature, Niyama, endorses human values of contentment, self-study, penance, cleanliness and surrender to God. Asanas are the various yogic postures that are to be performed to keep the body fit and fine. The management of the breath is covered under the aspect of Pranayama. The feature of Pratayahara is practiced to compose the mind and alienate

oneself from the five senses. Dharna and Dhyan are about concentrating and meditating and the final aspect of Samadhi refers to the ultimate state of oneness with God.
