Yoga refers to the system of practices that help to control the mind, body and the soul. There are many styles and patterns of yoga and each pattern is oriented towards exploration and development of mind, body and soul. It is a holistic path that leads to a sense of peace and well-being. Through different poses (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama) and meditation (dhyana), yoga makes the practitioner aware of his inner self. The practitioner achieves highest potential and experiences perennial happiness. Through the practice of yoga, one becomes aware of the interconnectedness between his/her emotional, mental and physical levels. This awareness leads to an understanding of the more subtle areas of existence. Yoga aims to help an individual to fuse together the material (annamaya), physical (pranamaya), mental (manomaya), intellectual (vijnanamaya) and spiritual (anandamaya) levels within him/her.
Meditation (Dhyana) is one of the important principles of Yoga. It is the seventh limb of the eight limb Patanjali Yoga Sutra. Meditation implies focusing mind’s energy at one point to create a deep state of relaxation and tranquility. Meditation helps in achieving the strength of will. It helps to connect one to his/her actual “self”. Meditation calms one's mind, enriches concentration leading the meditator to a heightened level of awareness. It eliminates the veils of life, cleanses the mind and the soul and make an individual realize that God is the ultimate truth. Through meditative practices, a person can reach a state of emotional bliss.
By integrating body, mind and spirit, yoga offers emotional stability and clarity of mind. The negative thoughts are effaced and the practitioner experiences a positive vibe from within. The material attachments of life becomes less important as the mortal can connect himself to the universal whole. With proper breathing exercises (Pranayama), the energy within a human being is controlled and helps the individual to maintain health and promote evolution. Pranayama, coupled with yoga practice and meditation reduces everyday stress levels and boosts up the feeling of joy and serenity. With different yoga poses, the muscles of the body are relaxed and the heart beat and blood pressure is controlled. The physical and mental benefits of yoga provide a natural counterbalance to stress, and strengthen the relaxation response in daily life.
Yoga and meditation are steady and comfortable ways to free oneself from pessimism, obsession, greed and lust. Rather, yoga and meditation practice leads a way for reaching a spiritual high, when a human being can identify his actual inner self and realize the divine connection of oneness with the Supreme.
