What is Yoga?

What best way to describe Yoga if not per the words of B.K.S. Iyengar and is most famous book Light on Yoga?

The word Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root hug meaning to bind, join, attach and yoke, to direct and concentrate one’s attention on, to use and apply. It also means union or communion. It is the true union of our will with the will of God.  Mahadev Desai says, “It thus means the yoking of all the powers of body, mind and soul to God; it means the disciplining of the intellect, the mind, the emotions, the will, which that Yoga presupposes; it means a poise of the soul which enables one to look at life in all its aspects evenly.”
Yoga is one of the six orthodox systems of Indian philosophy. It was collated, co-ordinated and systematised by Patanjali in his classical work, the Yoga Sutras, which consists of 185 terse aphorisms. In Indian thought, everything is permeated by the Supreme Universal Spirit (Paramatma or God) of which the individual human spirit (jivatma) is a part. The system of yoga is so called because it teaches the means by which the jivatma can be united to, or be in communion with the Paramtma, and so secure liberation (moksa).
Yoga is a timeless pragmatic science evolved over thousands of years dealing with the physical, moral, mental and spiritual well-being of man as a whole.

Some of our favourite quotes by B.K.S. Iyengar include:

  • “Yoga is like music: the rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life.”
  • “Action is movement with intelligence. The world is filled with movement. What the world needs is more conscious movement, more action.”
  • “Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions, the gates of the soul open.”

Yoga is a complete exercise. It builds muscles and flexibility. You will increase stamina. It is amazing what you can do using your own body weight and proven exercises that have been improved by centuries of experience. In a warm up we use more dynamic movements, developing power, strength and flexibility in your whole body.
