Yoga Classes at India Center

Yoga is for every one. Each individual does it in their own comfort zone. The purpose of Yoga is self realization. Yoga brings discipline in life.Quality of life improves with regular yoga practice.

Yoga is an ancient holistic wisdom of India. It is a practical, methodological and systemic discipline for unfolding the unlimited potentialities of mankind. It has evolved over the centuries and was formulated into the Yoga Sutras by sage Patanjali. He has formulated Yoga as an Eight Limbs or Eight Fold path which leads to Self realization. Yoga is derived from Sanskrit word Yuj. It means integration or union. Thus Yoga is total integration of human personality at increasingly subtle levels which leads to Union of Atma with Parmatma or pranic energy with cosmic energy. Yoga leads to higher state of awareness. It restores mind to its simple, calm and original peaceful nature. Practicing Asana regularly increases circulation of fresh blood throughout the body and keeps body free of disease and toxins which are consequences of unhealthy habits and fast life style.
