What is yoga?
Yoga is an age-old holistic practice originating in India.
A session is a succession of poses, usually followed by relaxation.
There are several types of yoga: some are physically intense, others more meditative.
In fact, many disciplines come together and blend behind the name “yoga”.
What is the purpose of yoga?
Yoga is a philosophy of life.
Breathing and presence are essential to the practice.
The objectives are :
- To strengthen, balance and relax the physical body.
- To calm the mind.
- To increase awareness.
- The union of body and mind.
Why do yoga?
Anyone can become a yoga practitioner.
The sessions are not just about doing some physical exercises.
It is about harmonizing all bodies: physical, emotional, energetic and spiritual.
The main benefits are to relax and to become more flexible.
The effects on health are well documented.
It is important to go at my own pace and never force it.
The resistances I encounter in yogic practices highlight my emotional memories.
To free myself from them, I can accept them.
Emotional acceptance is a precious tool for yogis.
Like Qi Gong, yoga includes a strong energy dimension.
It allows the chakras to function better.
When awareness is placed on movement and breathing, energy flows.
Some types of yoga focus mainly on energy, such as kundalini yoga.
Connecting with my breath helps me to be more present and to focus my attention on myself.
A yoga teacher’s mission is to awaken consciousness.
That is, to become aware of thoughts or feelings.
What are the benefits of yoga?
Designed as an integral practice, it helps to get better.
Doing yoga is excellent for spiritual evolution.
